Your kids will flip for these Healthy Chili-Cheese Dogs! Uncured hot dogs cost a few dollars more than regular ones, but they're worth it. They are lower in fat and sodium and free of nitrites.

How to Make It

Step 1

Warm oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and chili powder and sauté 30 seconds. Stir in tomato sauce and beans and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt, if desired.

Step 2

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add hot dogs and boil 5 minutes. Drain well, place on buns, top with chili and cheese, and serve immediately.

Great family meal. I used pinto beans instead of kidney beans.
