"A great easy fast recipe. I agree with 5hungrykids in that it's not much different than regular chili dogs, but I also like how it all cooked in the crockpot together. My family loved it."

"This recipe was good, though not sure that it is much different than just regular chili dogs. I had way more chili topping than I did hot dogs. Next time I will use two packages of hot dogs. Love the idea of all of it cooking in the crockpot together. Very quick and easy, which is what my family needs! Thank you for the recipe."
