Info
I wanted to make some hot dogs for 4th of July weekend, but not just typical hot dogs. I was looking through several cookbooks and spotted this recipe from Cuisine Grilling magazine and it looked perfect. The hot dogs were topped with a quick cook chili and a cole slaw which I elected not to do. The chili alone looked great, some basic ingredients and a quick cook. While New England style hot dog rolls are my favorite type roll, I used a traditional hot dog roll which seems to hold more toppings. I wanted to maximize the amount of chili I could get on this dog. The chili dogs were served together with some grilled corn which takes exactly the same amount of time to cook as hot dogs. With that great combo the 4th of July weekend was off to a great start.
