Directions

Heat the oil in large nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, celery, bell peppers, jalapeno, onions, chili powder, cumin and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and beans and bring to a boil. Add the ground chicken. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are blended and the chili begin to thicken, about 1 hour.

Bring a pot of water to a low boil. Add the dogs and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and place each hot dog in a bun. Top with a generous serving of the chili. Garnish with the cheese and scallions and an optional dollop of Greek yogurt.

    I only made the chili part of this recipe but the store didn't have jalapeno or ground chicken (live in Hawaii so the jalapeno was excluded and used extra lean ground beef and put the cooked meat in a colander for 20 mins. to strain out the oil. Wow, that was spicy!! I couldn't eat it and my husband is a big chili fan and only ate one serving over rice. However, he definitely wants the whole quantity I made but needs to eat it in smaller portions. Oftentimes the canned beans are drained and I almost did it but I'm sure glad I didn't as the recipe would have been even spicier! For people who like spicy I'm sure they'd love this recipe but because of our personal preference, I gave a lower rating. Bobby, appreciate your cutting back the calories and fat from your recipes.

    My crowd ate these chili dogs so quickly that I had to make another batch just so I could eat one! I substituted one can of tomatoes for diced tomatoes with green chilies and used a half pound of 99% white ground chicken with a half pound of ground bison which gave the chili a really good beefy flavor. The spice measurements do need to be adjusted to your palate and don't be afraid to add a dash of hot sauce or cayenne pepper. Enjoy!

    The Chili for the Chili dog, works great. 'A' for effort and concept, but as chili go's needs work. Somethings in life are not meant to be healthy and chili is not. You can get it close, but. I modify the recipe, I added one 10 ounce can of Rotel (mild. and a 2nd can of red kidney beans, with 1 cup of veg stock . I also added a tad bit more chili powered once complete for taste. Overall has the texture of chili, but its kind'a different. Would redo, but not a favorite.
