Snowbound Chili Dogs

Well, my driveway drifted shut a couple days ago (after a snowstorm) and I hadda do some freezer diving for provisions ~ came up with a pint of homemade chili and a package of good all-beef red hot dinner franks. Pantry scan turned up a can of Bavarian kraut ~ seems I had the makins for chili dogs. I would also point out that whenever I throw a package of hot dogs in the freezer ... I also freeze a package of hot dog BUNS. Why? Because my Mama din't raise no dang fool, dat's why.

Steamed dem red hots in a lil' beer, topped'em wit some dat thick & spicy chili, lotsa good shredded Tillamook cheddar, kraut and a schmear plain ol' yeller mustard. Now, if youse one them city-slickers you could gussie dat chili dog up nine ways to Sunday ... *drag thru the garden* wit yer sport peppers, tomatoes, pickle spears and I don't know whut all ... but dat ain't the way we roll our dogs, here on the nort shore da bayou, no.
