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.
