Recipe Notes

  • If you’re serving it with chopped onions, you can soak them in water for about 10 minutes to remove some of their bite.

  • Use whatever cheese you like, but cheddar cheese is traditional on a chili cheese dog.
  • You can use regular hot dogs, all-beef hot dogs or even turkey hot dogs for this recipe.

  • Don’t put too much of the cornbread batter on the bottom of the pan. You want more of it on top.
  • I needed milk and one egg to make my Jiffy cornbread mix.
  • For some spice, you could make this with jalapeno cornbread mix.
  • You could add some vegetables to this recipe. Simply cook some chopped onion and green bell pepper in a little olive oil until soft, then add the hot dogs to the skillet to brown.
  • Next time I will wait and add the shredded cheese halfway through cooking time so it stays cheesier. If you put it on at the beginning of cooking time, you can cover the casserole with foil to prevent it from getting too brown.

Here’s how to make it: 

  1. Put the cornbread mix plus ingredients to make it into a mixing bowl.

  2. Mix well.

  3. Spread half (or a little less than half) of the cornbread mix onto the bottom of a buttered square baking pan or similar size baking dish.

  4. Put the hot dogs into a skillet and cook until lightly browned.

  5. Add the chili, brown sugar, garlic powder and chili powder.

  6. Stir to combine and heat through.

  7. Stir in half of the cheese.

  8. Spoon the mixture over the cornbread batter.

  9. Top with the remaining cornbread batter and the shredded cheese.

  10. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 25 to 30 minutes.

  11. Serve the casserole with desired toppings.
