This recipe for Oven Baked Chili Dogs is so delicious and would be a great idea for a summer potluck or some game day food. They are a yummy alternative to regular hot dogs!


    Summer is almost here and I CAN’T WAIT! Barbecues, swimming and camping are in the near future and I’m beyond excited! This recipe for Oven Baked Chili Dogs would be a great idea for a summer potluck. They are a sinfully delicious alternative to regular hot dogs. 

   They type of chili you use is totally up to you! Feel free to use canned if you don’t have a lot of time, but I would suggest homemade to take these babies to the next level. I personally love a certain brand of chili called ‘Bear Creek Darn Good Chili’. If you can find it in your grocery store I suggest you try it. It is amazing chili! Especially on these hot dogs, drenched in cheese and onion. *droooool*

Oven Baked Chili Cheese Dogs
Loaded hot dogs with chili, cheese and onion, baked in the oven. These are delicious!
  • 8 hot dogs
  • 8 hot dog buns
  • 2 cups prepared chili
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ red or yellow onion, chopped
  • mustard, ketchup, relish
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 9×13 baking pan with tin-foil (for easy clean-up). Place hot dog buns inside. (I only fit 7, but if you squeeze them together all 8 should fit)
  2. Squeeze desired amounts of mustard, ketchup and relish into the inside bottom of each bun. Then put a hot dog inside each bun, over the sauces.
  3. Ladle ⅓ cup of chili onto each hot dog, and then sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese and onion.
  4. Cover pan with foil. Bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Let stand 5 minutes and then carefully remove foil. Use a spatula to help remove hot dogs from pan.
  6. Enjoy ♥

  1. ♥ this idea, will def try it, thx so much for sharing! we had incredible hotdog sale here last week, got my 10 packs for freezer. i always make double batch chili and send leftover to freezer – just for hot dogs:)

  2. These look incredible! I have a similar blog with recipes and I like to experiment in the kitchen (hence the name cookingexperimentation.blogspot.com), but I never would have thought to put hot dogs in the oven. Thanks!

    1. Made these yesterday and they were so simple to make and tasted so darn good! I used the Southern style hot dogs and a different brand of chili and they were absolutely yummy! I love how you can change up the variation of flavors with this recipe. Will definitely be making this one over and over again. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe! =)

  3. Holly, I am taking your word for the Bear Creek “Darn Good Chili” being great. I picked up a package last night just to make these dogs! Do you add any beef, or do you cook yours per package directions? I have made my hot dogs in the oven exactly like yours since I can remember, and have always used canned Wolf Brand Chili.

  4. Waiting for these in the oven as I type. This was super easy and all my boys are slightly impatiently waiting. Thank you for this easy after work recipe! Can’t wait to try & dabble with the ingredients next time!

  5. Holly, these are SO GOOD! I just made them for dinner and my husband gave them rave reviews. He said he would have ate the whole pan!

  6. I’m making these now. We’ve had THEm before and they are excellent! Being Southerners, we add slaw to the top after baking. Adds a delicious Tang and crunch!
