Hillbilly Hot Dogs

Kim Biegacki


I just recently spent some time with family from my Grandpa Campbell’s side in Ansted, WVA. My cousin Debbie owns a store called Chimney Corner USA and while browing the store I was very excited to find some Chow Chow. What is Chow, Chow? It is a pickled relish made with cabbage & veggies and can be hot, sweet, spicy or mild. Now, I was on the search for Chow Chow for over a year but couldn’t find any. So, I was excited with my find. My cousin told me that they eat it on top of pinto beans with a side of homemade cornbread. I wanted to try the beans and the chow chow together so I tried it on a hot dog; hence, the name Hillbilly Hotdogs. It was wonderful! Love the Chow Chow!!!

How to Make Hillbilly Hot Dogs


  1. Grill your hot dogs and toast your buns. Heat up your bean mixture or just plain beans (have it your hillbilly way) lol
  2. Cook up your pinto beans w/bacon, onion and seasonings. I'll get back here and post my recipe soon for the pinto beans.
  3. Put 2 Tbsp of the beans and 2 Tbsp of the Chow Chow...I would be generous with the Chow Chow cause it tastes so so good!!!! Hope you enjoy a little bit of Hillbilly cookin'!
