In this chili cheese dog casserole, I combined the awesome-ness of chili cheese dogs and  the comfort and ease of a casserole. The best of both worlds! It only requires 4 easy to find ingredients which is important right now when store shelves are emptier than ever. However, you can customize your chili dog with all of your favorite toppings, like onions, avocado slices, shredded lettuce, salsa, or even corn chips (Fritos to be exact!).

If your kids like to help you cook in the kitchen, this is a perfect recipe for them to help with. In fact, my 10 year old daughter made this dish today while I took photos (since she’s stuck at home from school ha!). When kids cook, it’s actually an educational experience. Plus, they’re more likely to try new foods and ingredients when they are involved in the process. This recipe isn’t messy which makes it great for kids to help with.

Start by pouring 1 can of chili at the bottom of a 9×13 dish.  Then, roll hot dogs in fajita size flour tortillas. Fajita size tortillas are just a little smaller than the soft taco size. Place the rolled hot dogs seam down in the dish. Again, this is such a quick and easy task, even a kid can do it! We use about 9-10 hot dogs to fill up the dish. I think 9 hot dogs is the perfect amount for my chili to hot dog ratio:)

Once your dish is filled, you’ll pour another can of chili on top. Using a spoon, it’s very easy to evenly cover each hot dog throughout the dish. This recipe is wonderful for outdoor cookouts, and it can be made ahead. It is loved by young and old alike! Chili Dog Casserole is the best Super Bowl main dish! No need to worry chili dripping out of the bun onto your carpet and guests can easily help themselves.

Before placing this one dish dinner into the oven, top it off with a generous amount of shredded cheese. If you want to add onion, this is a great time to do it. My husband and I add onion to ours after it cooks because our 9 and 10 year old kids aren’t fans of onion on their hot dogs quite yet. Serve with with your favorite chili toppings like diced onions, cilantro, tomatoes, hot sauce, and sliced avocado. To give it more of a crunch, top with some corn chips like Fritos.

Can you make Chili Cheese Dog Casserole ahead?

This is a great casserole for making ahead of time and storing in the freezer. When you’re ready to use, continue with the recipe instructions, adding about 3-5 minutes to the first bake time to account for it being frozen. Make a garden salad or an Avocado Tomato Salad for a healthy, tasty side to balance out your meal.

      1. I want this right now!! Tell me, how is the texture of the tortilla? I’m sure it gets yummy soft & amazing. Comfort food at it’s finest for sure!

        1. Hi Stacy,
          It’s so delicious! The flour tortilla texture is just perfect with the hot dog and chili – I know you’re going to love it:) Best of all, it’s so easy and quick to make!

  1. Wondering if you could make ahead of time, or should I not because of the tortillas? I don’t want them to get hard before baking.

    1. Hi Kylie,
      Good question… I’ve never made it in advance but I think you could as long as the tortillas aren’t left in the refrigerator for too long (more than 1 day). I also think you could freeze the dish as long as you tightly cover it with plastic, then aluminum foil.

      1. I ended up not making it ahead of time, but I will keep that in mind for the future. It will be out of the oven in 10 or less minutes, and I will pin my result on Pintrest. And good to kmow! I would only make ahead for supper later in the day, so that might work! Thank you so much.
