Easy Chili Cheese Dogs

There’s this hole in the wall place on Route 66 in Albuquerque called Doghouse that sells the city’s most coveted chili dogs and frito pies. What really makes them great is the chile they use. [I will school you on the difference between chile and chili another day.] This midwestern girl is still getting used to eating EVERYTHING in spicy form, so I decided to make some chili dogs of my own that won’t make me cry.

This easy chili cheese dog recipe has only a few ingredients that you can find at Walmart, including Ricos Cheese Sauce. Ricos Cheddar Cheese Sauces are perfect for hosting big events like backyard barbecues, family reunions, birthday parties, game day tailgates, and more!
