Chili Dog Casserole




1 (24 ounce) can chili

8 hot dogs

1 (32 ounce) package frozen tater tots

8 ounces cheddar cheese




  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Pour your Chili into a 9″ X 13″ pan. If the sauce doesn’t comfortably cover the pan mix in a 1/4 cup of ketchup.
  3. Cut up the Hot Dogs and mix into the chili.
  4. Make sure the hot dogs have at least some chili sauce on them or they will burn.
  5. Put as many frozen tater tots on top of mixture as they will fit without overlapping. A uniform pattern cooks better and faster.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until tots are golden brown.
  7. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees.
  8. Lightly dust with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the tots and bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown.
