Chili Dogs

July 17, 2022 2 min read


This American classic gets a south-of-the-border twist with this crowd-pleasing feast of meat on a bun! Mildly spicy (depending how you season it) and savory, this one is bound to make the kiddos happy.

From baseball stadiums to tailgate parties and home cookouts, hot dogs have been a central fixture of American sporting culture for over 200 years, ever since the first ones were sold at a baseball game in 1893. Back then, German immigrants had brought their home cuisine of sausage with bread – popular in Frankfurt for hundreds of years  as well as Dachsund dogs with long bodies and short legs. It wasn’t long for what started as a food joke to become the name for a national staple - selling over $3 billion worth of meaty treats each year.

What better way to add even more international flair than pairing your Frankfurter with Chili-con-Carne – or simply, ‘Chili with meat’ – which is a meal in itself which originated in the ancient Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan. In fact, the word ‘chili’ is a native Nahuatl word meaning ‘hot pepper’. Traditional Mexican recipes don’t include beans, but there are many variations which do – in Texas in particular, you can always rely on the question of “beans in chili” to start heated arguments among home cooks. Either way, you can’t go wrong with our chili dogs, which combine the best of both worlds to create a meal in a bun that’s sure to win over your home team.

Tips and Tricks

  1. For a thicker sauce, simply reduce the amount of chopped tomatoes.
  2. Want an extra kick? Add 2 tsp of cayenne pepper, or even chop up a fresh chili in with the onions.
  3. When chopping onions, keep the root on and cut slices into the onion 1/8inch apart - then cut across the onion to chop into cubes. OR, cut in half twice and toss it into Multo!
