Chili Cheese Dog

When your favorite team made it to the playoffs and are hosting a viewing party, then why not make this American classic, Chili Cheese Dog.

There is just something about a dog between buns that makes my mouth wet. I love any style hotdog; especially the late night dogs from the carts wrapped in bacon, covered with onions, and bell peppers.
