HOW TO MAKE THESE EASY CHILI CHEESE HOT DOGS IN THE OVEN Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray.

Step 2: Spread garlic butter on each bun before placing the hot dog inside the bun.

Step 3: Place buns in casserole dish. You may have to work to get all 8 buns into the casserole.

Step 4: Top each hot dog with 1/8 of the chili. Step 5: Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top of the hot dogs.

Step 6: Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Step 7: Let stand 5 minutes to cool slightly before serving.

Step 8: Add diced red onion to garnish if desired. Serve with your favorite hot dog toppings.

You can freeze the chili or hot dogs separately for up to 3 months, however you may not want to freeze pre-assembled hot dogs as they will not re-heat as well.
