Who doesn’t love hot dogs? I know I do! 

But sometimes, I want something more than just a standard hot dog, bun, and mustard.

These oven baked chili cheese dogs are packed full of yummy chili, gooey cheese, and crunchy toppings, ready to feed a hungry crowd!

They’re great to serve at a summertime party, or for a big game day treat.

Trust me, these oven baked chili cheese dogs will have your family cheering!

I used some leftover Chipotle Ground Turkey Chili for these hot dogs but you can also use canned as the recipe points out.

Ingredients for Oven Baked Chili Cheese Dogs

  • Hot dog buns – You can get either traditional or split-top. Both work here!
  • Cooked beef hot dogs – Feel free to use your favorite brand of hot dogs.
  • Spicy brown mustard – Tangy and spicy, brown mustard gives us a little heat!
  • Chili – You can use either homemade or canned. 
  • Cheddar cheese – Cheddar cheese gives a sharp, pungent flavor and melts wonderfully.
  • Red onion – Slightly spicy and crisp, a perfect topping for our hot dogs. 
  • Cilantro – A green, fresh herbaceous flavor.

Topping options

These oven baked chili cheese dogs are so versatile, it’s really up to you!

I’ve chosen fresh red onion and cilantro, but if you’re not a fan of those, feel free to switch it out for a bright, white onion, and fresh parsley.

Or change it up completely and use your favorite corn chip, tortilla strips, or sliced green onions!

Not a fan of cheddar? No problem!

Use Monterey Jack or a shredded Mexican cheese blend. 

Is spicy brown mustard too strong for your tastebuds?

Plain yellow mustard is perfectly fine!

And even though I highly discourage it, you wouldn’t hurt my feelings if you chose to use ketchup on top of these. 

Different dogs

If you don’t eat meat, don’t despair. 

Most major grocery stores now carry great meat-substitute hot dogs, so everyone can enjoy them!

Along with regular chili, you can often find vegetarian chili in the canned aisle of grocery stores as well.

Storage and leftovers

Any leftover oven-baked chili cheese dogs can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. 

Reheating is as simple as putting them on a microwave-safe dish, covering them loosely with a damp paper towel, and heated 3-4 minutes until heated thoroughly.
