I thought it was just okay. I used smoked sausage instead of the hotdogs. I also took the suggestion to only put 1 Tbsp of brown sugar, still plenty sweet. Maybe it was the brand of chili (Wolfe)?? I have never used that ingrediant before.

Really delicious. I used a 12-oz. package of hot dogs, and it was enough. 1 tablespoon of brown sugar made it plenty sweet.

I put all the cornbread on the bottom, and it worked out great! Tasted very yummy, and is a great way to use leftover hotdogs from a grill out!

We LOVED this! The 2nd time I made it I doubled everything and prepared in a 9x13 pan so we could have leftovers! We think it's fabulous!!!!

not the healthiest of all recipes, however it is very good! I doubled the spices, and added them while the veggies and hot dogs were cooking. Will make again
