Chili cheese dogs can be pretty messy to eat. They're one of my favorite messy things, but sometimes I just really don't want the mess. It's pretty difficult to eat a chili cheese dog without getting it all over the place. In the recipe below, we solve that problem by turning it into a casserole.
I like to make this in the slow cooker so I can step out for a few hours and come back to a hot, fresh and ready-to-eat meal. I'm a sucker for toppings — the more the better. I top my serving with sour cream, chives and extra cheese. If I have some leftover bacon from breakfast, I crumble that on top as well!
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
