I didn't really like this recipe. It sounded so good but I think the hotdogs and/or onions made the chili really watery.

i make a similar dish quite often in the summer but use fresh potato slices...partially cooked on the microwave...as a "bed" for the chili dogs...less fattening and kids like the "funny" look of the meal.
