Chili Cheese Corn Dogs are corn dogs that are sliced and filled with homemade chili, cheddar cheese, onion, and jalapeno pepper. If these sound good to you, try the fixings on my homemade Pronto Pups!
Since I already have Chili Cheese Fries and Chili Cheese Nachos, it made sense to add this recipe to the list. I found the idea on a Reddit food thread, and then I was just craving one of the dogs! They are an easy lunch, dinner, or appetizer to put together. Start with a package of storebought corn dogs and then add homemade chili, cheese, onion, and jalapeno!
What to Serve with Chili Cheese Corn Dogs
As I stated, these corn dogs could be served as a main course or as an appetizer, depending on the size. If they are being served as the main course, serve them with a side of macaroni and cheese, potato chips, roasted sweet potatoes, potato salad, or cornbread, just to name a few.
8 corn dogs, cooked per package instructions
2 cups cooked chili, divided
1 cup (113 g) sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded, divided
1 small onion, finely diced, divided
1 medium jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced, divided
Carefully remove the wooden stick from the cooked corn dogs.
Slice each corn dog vertically down the center, about halfway through, being careful not to cut through all the way through the bottom.
Into the cut, add chili, cheese, onion, and jalapeno.
