This is the ultimate “guy meal.” I came across the basic recipe on Pinterest and loaded it up with extra goodies to give it more “oomph.” It worked. My guys were wowed–and so was I.

Loaded Chili Dog Casserole  Loaded Chili Dog Casserole 2

2-15 oz cans chili beans (I like Hormel’s)

8 soft taco-sized flour tortillas

8 all-beef franks (I used Hebrew National)

mustard, to taste

2 green onions, sliced thin, divided

1-1/4 cups grated cheddar cheese, divided

1/2 chopped cup tomatoes

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees

2) In bottom of 9×9″ square baking dish, spread one can chili beans, reserving second can for topping

3) Place a hot dog in center of each flour tortilla and pipe mustard down the length (I piped 2 lines); using half the green onions, scatter a few slices over each hot dog; using 1/2 cup cheese, scatter a portion over each hot dog; tuck in ends of tortillas and roll up; place seam-side down in pan

4) Spread second can of chili beans over top of wrapped hot dogs; bake 30 minutes

5) Remove casserole from oven; scatter remaining 3/4 cup cheese, reserved green onions, and tomatoes over top; return to oven and bake additional 10 minutes

Servings: 4 (3 guys and 1 gal who, unfortunately, has to watch her calories)
