Vegan Mofo: Chili cheese dogs!  »

It’s Wednesday night—what’s for dinner? Something quick and tasty, cause you are probably tired from work or school, or whatever it is you do on hump-day (I had the day off and I’m soo tired from lounging and watching Mad Men). Don’t worry, I got you covered. Vegan chili cheese dogs—yes please and thank you!

1 to 2 cans vegan chili
1 Tbsp. BBQ sauce
1 package of your favorite veggie dogs (I like Smart Dogs)
Cooking oil
Green onions
Vegan cheese (I used Daiya)
Fritos (optional)

I like to fry up my hot dogs (Health food? What’s that?). I heat up some veggie oil in a pan, slice my veggie dogs in half and cook them til they are bubbly and ever-so-slightly charred on all sides.

While that’s going on, heat up your chili. I like to add BBQ sauce to mine. If you haven’t tried this before, OMG IT’S AMAZING.

Once everything is heated through, put your dog and your chili together!

Next step: vegan cheese, of course! I used Daiya on mine, but Nacheez or Food For Lovers Vegan Queso would be perfect as well.

Chop up some green onions and sprinkle them on (you are so gourmet!) Do what you do with buns, toast them or whatever—I fear carbs (so mid-’00s, I know) so I stay away.

My bun-less dog. I probably should have let the cheese melt, but sometimes when you’re hungry you don’t make the best decisions.

My roommate Crystal’s dog. She does not fear carbs and therefore NOT ONLY used a bun, but loaded hers up with Fritos.

Happy Wednesday, MoFos!
