Texas Corn Dogs

These hot dogs are loaded with a quick and easy homemade corn chili and Fritos Corn Chips for that added crunch!

If you’ve been following Damn Delicious for a while, I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’m somewhat of a hot dog fiend. I’ve tried a countless number of bizarre toppings, like Sriracha guacamole, teriyaki sauce, chipotle cream sauce and now this: a thick and hearty cornmeal chili!

So what’s in this chili? Well, we start off with some applewood smoked bacon and let it get nice and crisp in our handy Dutch oven here.

Then we add in a pound of ground beef, letting it get nicely browned and crumbling it as it cooks. A potato masher works great for this.

Next, we’ll add in our spices – chili powder and espresso powder. As weird as it may sound, the espresso powder is the secret ingredient for that deep flavor.

Then comes in the garlic, onions and jalapeños. If you want a bit of a mild chili, feel free to omit the peppers.

Then we’ll throw in just a little bit of tomato paste to thicken it up a bit.

And we can’t forget the cornmeal, the most important ingredient of all!

And last but not least, we’ll stir in some kidney beans.

With a blend of all of these ingredients, we have some amazing things happening here: a combination of applewood smoked bacon AND ground beef, some fragrant spices like chili powder and espresso powder, and of course, a healthy dose of cornmeal. And when you spoon this on some grilled hot dogs and add a generous sprinkling of Fritos Corn Chips, you’ll have one of the most comforting, most crunchy hot dogs ever. It’s comfort food in hot dog form, and just in time for the Labor Day holiday!
