Chili Cheese Dog Casserole

Chili Cheese Dog Casserole

I made these for my Christmas Eve family dinner thinking they might be something the grandkids would like as opposed to the more traditional foods I had prepared. Turned out everyone liked them and wanted more!

Wrap a wiener into a flour tortilla. I trimmed my tortillas to a square for neater wrapping but would not be necessary. Use eight or ten tortillas according to number of wieners in your brand package.

In a glass baking dish spread 1 can of chili with beans or without as per your preference. Place the wrapped hotdogs seam side down and cover with another can of chili. Top with two cups of shredded cheese of your choice. I used cheddar.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake 30 minutes at 350º or until wieners are hot and cheese is melted. Serve with sides of diced onion, sour cream, mustard. etc.

I actually choose not to use canned chili and opted to brown a pound of hamburger meat and mix it with a can of hot dog chili sauce. I spiced it a bit with garlic powder and chili powder. Easy on the salt and pepper as the cheese and hot dogs are salty. This was the consistency of a sloppy joe mixture which is a good thing so the tortillas do not get soggy. If you like, make it more spicy using some chiles or jalapenos. In order not to be wasteful. I used the trimmed tortilla strips and baked them with butter, cinnamon and sugar for a little bonus treat.
