Kick Butt Chili Dog and Fries !

Colleen Sowa


Here is another fast food recipe for you to make at home, you can make this in about the same time as waiting in a line at a drive thru...

I use to have a hot dog cart in Oak Park, Illinois. I had a real steam table, but this recipe shows you how to turn a sauce pan into one by only using a little water and a lid.

Buy a good quality hot dog of which ever type of meats you choose. I like the skin on wieners.

4Place hot dogs in a sauce pot with 1/3 cup of water that has been brought to a boil. Put the lid on the pot. Continue heating and adding a bit more water if needed to keep the temperature up and the pan from drying out. (The object isn't to boil... but to steam!).
5In a separate pan, heat up the chili.
6Separate buns and put on top of hot dogs. Cover. Let steam 1-2 minutes or until buns are more plyable but not soggy!
7Apply mustard to bun, place a hot dog, add chili then cheese. top with onions.
