Reviews for Chili Dogs
"First time making a chili dog and this recipe was both easy and delicious!!!"
"This is close enough to my Mom's recipe to give this 5 stars. I haven't had them in a long time since I saw what all is in a hot dog and I miss them something terrible! I grew up on these. I could eat 4 of them. We didn't put cheese on ours but HAD to have onions."
"i like to eat healthy so this has to many calories and carb. for me"
"This is a little too much tomato paste for me, I cut it down to 1/2 can..Tastes much better to us."
