Chili Cheese Dog Burgers

Hello, my name is Pam. I am a stay at home mom with 4 children, with many teenagers who have come to call our home theirs. I was looking to make something different for dinner one day, that was easy on the budget but didn't loose any of the flavor. While trying to figure this out, one of my kids said that they wanted chili dogs and my husband said he wanted hamburgers. So I created this buger and it has been a hit ever since. I hope by sharing this recipe with everyone they will enjoy it as much as we have.


2 ½ lbs of ground beef
½ packages of regular size beef hotdogs (sliced into quarters and then diced into small pieces)
1 5oz. (or half of a 10 oz.) can of tomatoes with green chili’s (or jalapeno’s in tomatoes)(drained) ½ small onion (diced small) ½ package of chili mix 1 teaspoon each of: salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic powder 3 tablespoons each of salad dressing mayo and spicy brown mustard. (mix together) 1 packages of Onion style Buns Lettuce 2 10 oz. cans of chili dog sauce 1 8 oz pkg. Of pepper jack cheese, shredded Total prep time: 20-30 min, cooking time 20-30 min.
