Baked Chili Hot Dogs

This gets filed under quick and easy and nice for a change of pace. We very rarely eat chili, or hot dogs, so it was kind of a treat to mix them all together and bake up this pan of cheesy chili topped dogs.

I love how quick and easy this recipe is, and it was very tasty, filling, and satisfying. The Hormel chili makes for a flavorful addition to this recipe, and you can mix and match the cheese on top to your personal taste and preferences. If you want something a little spicier, you could use a Chipotle Cheddar.

We're almost through the end of the work week, and we have a busy and full weekend ahead of us. Lindsey has been sick off and on the past couple weeks, and is running a fever again so I worked from home today to stay with her and keep an eye on her. Some of the time she seems fine, the rest of the time she is clingy and lethargic just depending on how high her fever is running. We're not sure what she's come down with, but being in daycare she gets exposed to a lot of germs, so I'm sure it's probably something viral that will hopefully pass before too much longer. Poor baby. It's hard seeing your little ones under the weather and being able to do so little about it! Thankfully my sister and I can usually take turns having at home days with her, so neither of us is missing too much office time in a given week. Ready to have happy healthy kiddo again! At least most of the time she is in a good mood even when she's not feeling great. She's a good natured kiddo. So especially on days like this when I have work to do, sick kiddo to keep track of, and normal household chores to do - easy peasy hot dogs are a good way to get everyone fed!
