  • 1/2 yellow onion minced, optional


  • 5 whole jumbo hot dogs sliced into bite sized rounds
  • 2 cans chili (14.5 ounce cans)
  • 2 cups shredded medium cheddar cheese divided
  • 20 ounces frozen tater tots
  • 1/2 yellow onion minced, optional


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Combine sliced hot dogs, cans of chili and 1 cup of shredded cheddar together in a bowl.
  • Place mixture in a large casserole baking dish. I used a 9 x 13 but a smaller dish would work too. Top with tater tots.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes or until tater tots are browned and crisp. Remove from oven and top with remaining cup of shredded cheese. Cook 1 - 2 more minutes or until cheese melts.
  • Serve with more shredded cheddar and minced onion.


You can use 8 smaller hot dogs if you don't have the jumbo.
We like chili with beans but you could use chili without beans or 1 can with and one can without.  
Depending on the size of the casserole dish that you use, you likely won't need the entire bag of tater tots.
