December in PA brings with it cooler temperatures, shorter days and the end of the year hustle and bustle. As the year ends it seems like our family gets busier. (Can that really happen?) Being able to sit, regroup and enjoy some comfort food with the family, grounds me and reinforces the real importance of the holiday season, family.

Spicy Chili Dog Casserole

Thankfully, I can stop at Walmart pick up a few canned goods, fresh produce, add meat and bring an easy and delicious Spicy Chili Dog Casserole to the table in less than 30 minute


You will need to grab a few simple ingredients, add your own fresh produce side (green beans is my favorite) and you will have a complete meal everyone will love. Chili Dog Casserole is the ultimate comfort food and you don’t have to make it spicy unless you want to.

Spicy Chili Dog Casserole Ingredients

Chili Dog Casserole Ingredients:

  • 3/4 LB Hamburger
  • 1 LB Hot Dogs or 6 to 8 leftovers. (cooked or uncooked it doesn’t matter)
  • Corn Muffin Mix
  • Onion
  • RO*TEL
  • 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • PAM
  • Jalapeno Slices (Optional only if you want it spicy)


Finely chop a medium onion and saute with hamburger in a frying pan sprayed with PAM non-stick spray. Isn’t PAM great? Cleaning up those pots, pans and casserole dishes is easier when I spray them with PAM. Anything that can save me time, is a friend of mine.

While hamburger is frying mix cornbread as directed on package and cut hot dogs in to bite size pieces.

Spicy Chili Dog Casserole RoTel

When hamburger is done, drain grease and add MANWICH and RO*TEL. Stir well and bring to a boil over medium heat.

While the casserole is in the oven you can prepare fresh produce to serve for a complete well rounded meal. In the produce department at Walmart, I picked up fresh green beans. I cleaned them and steamed them in the microwave. The beans added the perfect touch of color to our meal.

Remove casserole from oven and top with sliced jalapenos (if desired) and serve!

Spicy Chili Dog Casserole would be the perfect meal for those holiday down times or after a long day of shopping or wrapping.

Spicy Chili Dog Casserole Serving

The flavor combos in Spicy Chili Dog Casserole takes me back to nights as a kid, eating chili dogs at the picnic table with family. Chili dogs don’t always look the best, but they always taste DELICIOUS! Adding that little bit of spice makes this casserole perfect for me.

    I had no idea Manwich could be used for things other than traditional sloppy joes. This totally sounds like hearty comfort food, which is one of my favorites, especially during the cold weather months.
