Dr. Pepper Chili Dogs Recipe – hot dogs topped with a sweet and tangy Dr. Pepper chili – great for your Summer cookouts! Ready in under 30 minutes!
I think chili dogs are a quintessential Summer treat. These Dr. Pepper Chili Dogs are the perfect dish for your Summer parties. The Dr. Pepper gives the chili a little sweetness – it tasted great! The chili can be made ahead of time and reheated when you are ready to serve it. We ate these for dinner and lunch the next day. The chili tasted great both times.
If you aren’t a fan of hot dogs, you can serve the Dr. Pepper Chili in the hot dog buns and top it with some cheese and slaw. It will still taste great!
