CHILI DOG CASSEROLE
Got a pack of hot dogs that you don't know what to do with? Instead of eating them with ketchup, you could put them into a casserole and serve at your next family meal. Combined with chili hot beans, the flavor of this hot dog recipe is amazing.
Cooking Time: 25 min
12 hot dogs
12 slices cheese
1 can (15-ounce) chili hot beans
1 can (8-ounce) tomato sauce
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
cayenne red pepper, to taste (optional --- it's obvious that kids might not like hot stuff)
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
Make three 1/2-inch diagonal slits in each hot dog.
Cut cheese into strips and insert strips in each slit in the hot dogs.
In a medium bowl, mix beans, tomato sauce, and spices. Lightly grease a square baking dish and spread bean mixture on the bottom.
Arrange hot dogs on bean mixture.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes.
