Pretzel Hot Dog Rolls

2 cans BUSH’SĀ® Chili Beans

1 lb of hamburger

1 can tomato soup

1 can tomato sauce

1 can diced tomatoes

Chili Powder

1 package Brats of your choice

1/2 White Onion, sliced



Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Sliced Green Onions



Start by browning the ground beef in a frying pan and drain.

Add cooked ground beef to a stock pot or dutch oven on the stove.

Add two cans of beans.

Add the tomato sauce, tomato soup, and diced tomatoes.

Add chili powder.

Mix well and simmer over medium low heat for at least 30 minutes

Prepare BratsĀ  while chili is simmering. We used this recipe here.

One thing I like to do with the brats, when I am making chili dogs with them is to slice them in half and put them in a frying pan for a couple of minutes to brown the inside up. This just gives you more space to add the chili.

While the brats are cooking slice up a white onion, and add to frying pan with melted butter in it. Cook until golden brown, to caramelize them.

Once chili is done simmering, and brats are done cooking, assemble your ultimate loaded chili brats in the pretzel rolls. To do this:

Add a brat to a pretzel hot dog roll. Scoop chili over the brat, and top with shredded cheese.

Put them under the broiler until cheese is melted and bubbling (around 2-3 minutes)

Serve with sliced green onions and crushed Fritos, for folks to optionally top their mini bowls of chili with.
