Whether you’re tailgating, watching the big game at home or just planning a family movie night, this Texas Chili Dog is guaranteed to please. Delicious hot dog franks are even better when topped with hearty Texas chili, freshly grated cheese and chopped sweet onion. You can always add a few slices of jalapeno, if you like it hot. Tater tots or Fritos make the best sides.
Tip: Toasting your Ball Park® Hot Dog Buns will help them stand up to the weight of the chili without getting soggy.
