How to Make the BEST Chili Dog Recipe

Since this recipe involves homemade hot dog chili, you’ll need to make that first. Use our favorite chili recipe here. If you’re planning to make these chili cheese dogs for game day, or something else you can plan ahead, then make the chili at least the day before. You can actually make it well ahead of time and freeze it too. Whatever works for you!

How to make chili cheese dogs:

  1. Place the hot dog buns (inside down) on a skillet over medium high heat, and give them a quick toasting.
  2. Now arrange the buns on a baking dish (something rimmed or with high sides), and place the onions, cilantro, and ketchup inside. Then sprinkle them with cheese.
  3. Place a hot dog inside each bun, top with lots of chili, and then top with LOTS of cheese.
  4. Cover the baking dish with foil, then bake for 30 minutes at 375°F.

Take them out, give them a few minutes to cool, and then serve! If you want, take the foil off at the end and broil them for a few minutes. This will make them extra toasty! Be sure to check the recipe card below for the full recipe details.
