"Here is a fast, flavorful, simple way to dress up plain old hot dogs," writes Roslyn Beal of Bremen, Georgia. Her hearty, economical mainstay comes in at only 43 cents per serving.


  • 4 bacon strips, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped celery
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 package (1 pound) hot dogs, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 5 cups hot cooked rice


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon to paper towels; set aside. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon of drippings. Saute onion, green pepper, celery and garlic in drippings until tender. Add pineapple juice, ketchup, salt and chili powder; mix well. Bring to a boil. Add hot dogs; return to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5-8 minutes or until heated through. Serve over rice. Sprinkle with bacon.
