  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup white onion diced
  • 1 15 ounce can chili
  • 8 hot dog buns
  • Mayonnaise
  • 8 all hot dogs
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Melt the butter in a saute pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the onions and cook until just starting to get tender.
  • Stir in the chili and heat through. Remove from heat.
  • Spread a little mayonnaise on the inside of all the hot dog buns. Yes, mayonnaise. Trust me.
  • Add a hot dog into each bun then place into a 9" x 13" baking dish. You might have to squeeze them in a bit, but that's ok.
  • Top each dog with a tablespoon of the pickle relish.
  • Spoon the chili mixture over the hot dogs and top with cheese and jalapenos (if using).
  • Bake for 40 minutes.
