Total Time30 mins


  • 1 package of all beef hot dogs 8 hot dogs
  • 1 15 oz can of chili with beans
  • 1 15 oz can of chili without beans
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • cooked tater tots
  • 1 can of Grands Jr. biscuits optional (original recipe calls for 2 cans, I think it's too much)
  • 1/2 stick of melted butter optional - for the biscuit topping
  • 2 tablespoons of garlic powder optional
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning optional


  • Prepare whichever topping you would like on your casserole - either precook the tater tots or mix the melted butter with the seasonings & bake (refer to the post for more information).
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine both cans of chili in a bowl. Slice the hot dogs into 1/2" to 3/4" rounds, & mix those in too. Spread the mixture into a 9x13 casserole dish - top with 2 cups of cheddar cheese. Bake for 15 minutes. Top with the precooked tots or seasoned biscuit pieces & bake for another 5 minutes. Cool for a couple minutes, & then serve hot.
