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.

The homemade chili is super easy to make. Start with browning some ground beef or ground turkey. Add tomato paste, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, Dr Pepper, water, chili powder, onion, a dash of cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Let the chili simmer for about 10 or 15 minutes and serve.

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. How yummy does that sound?!?!!? We love these chili dogs at tailgates, summer cookouts, and for a quick weeknight meal. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these yummy hot dogs:
