Dinner Tonight: Chili Cheese Dogs!

OK, OK, so this isn't a groundbreaking new inspiring recipe, but it IS darn delicious and simple enough after a nice long weekend enjoying the spring time weather! Have a happy (easy) Monday, friends! 


  • 1 lb ground turkey or beef
  • 1 (12-14oz) Can tomato sauce
  • 1 can ro-tel
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 3 cans beans drained and rinsed (we alternate between pinto, black beans, kidney beans, and garbanzo beans)
  • Hot dogs (we use Applegate Organic Beef, or Applegate Natural Turkey)
  • Hot dog buns
  • Shredded cheese
  • ketchup/mustard


  1. Brown meat and stir in tomato sauce and ro-tel 
  2. Add in salt, cumin, and chili powder, reduce to low and simmer 15 mins
  3. stir in beans, let simmer 20 mins
  4. grill or boil hotdogs, lay in buns, spoon chili and cheese on top, and serve! 
We love to serve this with a simple kale salad, sweet potato fries, or good 'ol fashioned potato chips! Yum!
