Chili Dog Casserole II

HUBBY LOVED this one omgosh he raved over it and wanted to know how I made it. He is going to try to get the recipe out of me hehe, he likes to take my recipes and make them better to make me mad haha

Recipe here at Allrecipes

Chili Dog Casserole II


  • 2 (15 ounce) cans chili with beans (I used a quart sized jar or homemade chili)
  • 1 (16 ounce) package beef frankfurters
  • 10 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Cheddar cheese, shredded
Just to note, I read through a ton of reviews and found that you should heat your hot dogs before rolling in tortillas, also people seemed to like it best with some onions and mustard in the tortillas too, also cheese . Already I have found that 15 oz cans of chili is not enough. I open up a jar of homemade chili that we canned recently. Will show a pic and let ya know how we like it later.


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Spread 1 can of chili and beans in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Roll up franks inside tortillas and place in baking dish, seam side down, on top of chili and bean 'bed'. Top with remaining can of chili and beans, and sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil, and bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
