Chili Dog Skillet – with Leftover Chili
Remember that chili that I made last night? Well, I had a good bowls worth of it leftover so I decided to make my kids’ favorite thing out of leftover chili. Sloppy dogs! This is one of those extremely simple but yummy recipes that I love. Now, this isn’t just chili piled on top of a hog dog. Those are good too, but those aren’t sloppy dogs! I came up with these a while back when I need to use some leftover chili, and I was tired of all the usual things to do with it. I guess you can say it is kind of a mix between chili dogs & sloppy joes.
First things first. You will need to slice you up 8 beef hot dogs, 1 medium sized onion, & 3 cloves of garlic. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil in a pan & saute your ingredients at medium heat til the weenies are brown.
Now, stir in your leftover chili.
The next step might sound a little odd, but trust me – it’s good. These ingredients are actually what you use to make normal homemade sloppy joes with hamburger. Into your skillet, add 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup ketchup, & 1/4 cup yellow mustard.
Stir it all together, & let it simmer uncovered for about 15 minutes.
Serve in hot dog buns by itself, or with your choice of toppings. I like mine with sliced jalapenos & shredded cheddar cheese!
