Chili Dog In A Log! That's right! Chili dogs in an egg roll wrapper... This truly is East meets West! We don't like to buy pre-made snacks from the freezer section at the grocery store... This is one of the goodies we make to eat right away... or make now, freeze and eat on the run or chillin' out watching a movie or sports on T. V. We make many versions of this... try this one and improvise with what you like and have on hand! We love to Play With Our Food! xo

These reminded us of something you'd find at a county fair with all the fried food deliciousness. Imagine biting into a melted chili cheese dog fried in a crunchy egg roll wrapper and you have this tasty snack. Fry these up for the big game, sit down and watch them disappear. We suggest serving with extra chili and a bit of mustard for dipping. These are awesome!
