    Directions

    Preheat broiler.

    Chop hot dogs into small pieces. Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. Add chili and hot dog pieces, and cook them until thoroughly heated, about 3 minutes. Set aside.

    Arrange chips on an oven-safe platter or in a large casserole dish. Top the chips first with the chili-dog mixture and then with onion.

    Top evenly with cheese strips.

    Place under the broiler until the cheese begins to melt and bubble, about 2 minutes. Top or serve with sour cream. Garnish with scallions. Eat!

    Combine all of the ingredients except the turkey and salt in a large bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of adobo sauce from the canned chipotle peppers. Mix to combine and coat all of the beans and veggies with sauce.

    Put the turkey in the bottom of the crock pot and break it up into small chunks. Pour the chili mixture on top and mix.

    Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours. Stir to distribute the turkey. Add salt, to taste. Mmmmm!!! Yield: 12 servings.
