It was not a great day for grilling. I’ve always said that grilling is a passion not a season. But 50 MPH winds and blowing rain can make me rethink that philosophy. I was still jonesin’ for a chili dog so I brought out the slow cooker and satisfied my need for a good dog on a bad weather day. The dogs end up tender and they even absorb some of the great chili flavors. Topped with cheese, onion and jalapeno they hit the spot.
Slow cooker chili dogs are a really great way to feed a crowd with no fuss whatsoever. You can easily double or triple this recipe if your slow cooker is big enough, ideal for that big game party!

Slow Cooker Chili Dogs
- Place the hot dogs in the bottom of your slow cooker.
- In a bowl, combine the chili and soup and pour over the hot dogs.
- Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.
- Serve hot dogs with buns, onion and cheese nearby. (I also like to have a few slices of fresh jalapeno for a little kick!)
