Chili Cheese Dogs in the Slow Cooker or Oven
This particular recipe comes from a blog friend who was kind enough to share her mother’s secrets with us! We must admit that the chili was good, and of course, even better with cheese hot dogs! And guess what? You can easily do all of this in the slow cooker!
Fry the chorizo in the usual way and add the cheese of your choice. Mix until everything is well melted and then add it to your hot dog. Get ready to taste heaven!
•1 1/2 cups of minced hydrated onions – soaked & drained we used 3/4 cup, and yes use dry onions you’ve rehydrated by soaking in water for 10 minutes
