Man Dogs Recipe and… I’m Co-Hosting a Free Virtual Cooking School called Cooking Connections!

This is a great campaign for us because these products are some of our favorites: the hot dogs are Kosher, we can get the tomato products in organic, we opt for the high-fructose corn syrup free ketchup, and my boys –especially my husband — will only eat Wolf Chili. Our favorite recipe is one my boys came up with. They call these “Man Dogs”.


  • 1 can Rotel
  • 1 lb Velveeta
  • 2 cups leftover taco meat
  • Cajun spices
  • 1 pk Hebrew Nation
  • 1 pk Hot Dog Buns
  • 1 can Wolf Chili
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Condiments – Hunts Ketchup, Gulden’s mustard

First, I make some yummy dip using RoTel, Velveeta, and some leftover taco meat. I cut the cheeses into chunks and throw it all in a pot on the grill and let it melt, slowly. I stir it occasionally and right before it is all melted down I add some Cajun spices. I also  heat the chili as well.

Next, we grill our Hebrew Nation hot dogs. Once the hots dogs are done we toast the buns on the grill.

Now we assemble them. A line of mustard and ketchup go down the center of the bun first. Next they hot dog goes on followed by a spoonful of the chill. Then, chips are crushed and sprinkled over the top. Finally, a spoonful (or two) of the dip is added over the chips. This is all served with some good Southern lemonade, of course. 🙂

Even though I am doing lots of work on the blog behind the scenes here, I wanted to be sure I popped in today to let you know that I’m co-hosting a virtual cooking school, Cooking Connections, and I would love to invite all of you to be part of it!
