Chili Cheese Corn Dog

Since I already have Chili Cheese Fries and Chili Cheese Nachos, it made sense to add this recipe to the list. I found the idea on a Reddit food thread, and then I was just craving one of the dogs! They are an easy lunch, dinner, or appetizer to put together. Start with a package of storebought corn dogs and then add homemade chili, cheese, onion, and jalapeno!

Process Steps for Adding Chili Cheese to Corn Dog

Corn Dog Ingredients

Corn Dogs: Grab some corn dogs from the store and cook them following the package instructions. The bigger, the better!

Chili: If you have the time, make homemade chili to top the corn dog. I have a few chili recipes from Texas chili to Meatless chili to Spicy Steak Chili

Cheese: I prefer sharp cheddar cheese, but I think Monterey Jack cheese would also be delicious. Or, use a combination of your favorite kinds of cheese.

Onion: Onions are important in this recipe. I used a yellow onion, but you could substitute a white onion for a little more bite to the flavor.

What to Serve with Chili Cheese Corn Dogs

As I stated, these corn dogs could be served as a main course or as an appetizer, depending on the size. If they are being served as the main course, serve them with a side of macaroni and cheese, potato chips, roasted sweet potatoes, potato salad, or cornbread, just to name a few.
