Ok this was created because I was CRAVING Coney Island Dogs… weird pregnancy craving, yes! I literally DREAMED this recipe up and most of those dreams turn out great!!
This is an easy summer crockpot meal! Hot dogs just scream SUMMER, so you might have them around.
I started with crockpot chili. For Crockpot Chili you use ground beef or turkey cooked in the crockpot with tomato paste & chili seasoning & water. Allow to cook 6 hours till done.
Cut up the hot dogs (I use all natural beef dogs with out the nitrates, etc.) and throw them in the cooked chili (maybe an hour to 30 minutes before eating).
Sprinkle the top of the meat with cheese and a few more onions and mustard to your liking. Put the lid back on and turn the crockpot on high for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve this up with pita chips if you are a Trim Healthy Mama follower (I used Joseph Lavash Bread that I toasted in the oven and crunched into pitas but you could also use low carb tortillas) or you could use Baked Blue Corn Tortillas (I get mine from Trader Joe’s) as a crossover.
Seriously this is soooooooooo good!! You can take this to a party and use as a party dip!! Quick, easy, and seriously good!!! It is an S meal too! Enjoy!
**NOTE: You can also bake this in the oven. Just layer as instructed above using cooked beef or turkey and then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes!

My family was very happy with this, but I think the “Chili” part could have used more seasoning. I used Lavish Bread chips and one of my sons used hot dog buns. We are trying the Sweet ‘n Sour Chicken tonight.
I agree! I usually do LOTS of seasoning but I didn’t want to over do it for anyone else! We use LOTS of spice in this house! lol Thank you!
Do you brown the beef first?
Actually I started with raw meat and cooked it all day (6 hours). But you can use browned beef to make it go quicker!! 🙂
I would LOVE to know what seasonings you use (and measurements if you have them). 🙂
For the chili? Here is the facebook/pinterest link… hope this helps! 🙂 http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fpinterest.com%2Fpin%2F100486635410436576%2F&h=dAQH3nvYN
This is going to sound really unintelligent 😉 but 2 packs of hot dogs…. is that 2 whole complete packages (like a total of approx. 20 hot dogs) or 2 single layer packs of like 5 hot dogs in each pack (total of approx. 10) ? That may not even make sense. lol
I did two whole packages so 20. 🙂 We have a family but you can do one package because it does have chili meat in it. 🙂
The link to the chili seasoning recipe isn’t working now—do you have an active link for it? I made this a month ago and we loved it…would love to follow the chili seasoning recipe again if possible.
Hmm… I will fix that! Thank you for letting me know!! 🙂

Would it be possible to bake this?
Sure, that should work! Just layer like the crockpot and add cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. 🙂
Natalie Jackson says
Should I cook the beef first?
Yes, I would brown the beef first! 🙂
I’m craving some chili dogs….I think I’ll be trying this one out very soon! 🙂

My husband and I love this recipe! Its delicious and definitely does not feel like we are on a “diet”. Love THM! Thank you! 🙂
This is delicious! Thank you for your wonderful recipes.
This may be obvious to everyone else ;), but the pinterest chili recipe calls for 3 cans of tomato paste. The coney recipe above calls for 2 cans of tomato paste…so are we using 5 cans all together or does the 3 cans in the chili recipe suffice for the whole recipe? Sorry I’m confused! Putting it in the crockpot now, so I’ll use 2 cans and add more when I hear from you if needed. Thanks so much!!
Yes!!!! You will only need the amount for the chili recipe!!! I am sorry that is confusing! I will see if I can fix that !!
This was delicious! It tasted just like a chili cheese coney from Sonic just without the bread!! I did add some diced bell pepper and onion, and some Rotel. It had awesome flavor!! Great idea!
Yes, that’s what I think too! YUM!!
I can’t get to the seasoning recipe, could you repost a link that is active? Thank you!!
So sorry about that… I added it to the recipe card! 🙂

Hi! I made this last night for company (9 of us total, 4 adults 5 kids) and it was enough for 2 adults and 2 kids to have 2nd’s! I am the only one doing THM but we all ate it like a bowl of chili with some shredded cheese, some onions and some used sour cream. Thanks so much for all your recipes, you explain everything so well and me being super new to THM, is grateful for that!! God bless <3
Hello I’m attempting to make this for a potluck tomorrow I cannot find the crock pot chili recipe. Thank you the link above does not work for Pinterest.
Here you go…Easy Crockpot Chili- 2 lbs of ground beef or turkey. Add chili seasoning: 2 to 3 tbsp Chili powder, 2 to 3 tbsp Cumin, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp onion powder, 3 tsp salt, 3 small cans of tomato paste, 1 1/2 cups of water (more if needed), *optional 1 small chopped onion, *optional 1 to 2 tsp Truvia (depending on if you like a sweeter chili or not), *optional 1 to 2 cans of Rotel, *optional 1 small can of green chilis. Dump into crockpot. Turn on low, allow to cook all day- 6 hours. Stir.
Hi! I was wondering what low carb tortillas you use? Are they made from sprouted wheat? Also, in some of your recipes you call for maple extract. Where do you get that and what brand is it? I love your recipes and your site! Thanks so much!
I use Mission Branch Carb Balance Whole Wheat Low carb tortillas with 3 carbs per tortilla. 🙂 I use Watkins Flavoring for Maple but I love Bakto flavorings too! And thank you so much!!
My work is doing a “department crock pot cook-off” and my department is making a few dishes the next month to see what one we will put in the competition. Could I half this recipe evenly to test it out? And what condiments could I add to make this a show stopper?
Oh fun!! Hmmm… lots of cheese, onions, and the mustard make this really pop! You could add a little cilantro to the top too, if you like that!
I have made this for my family too many times to count and I just realized I wasn’t making it in the crock pot! I’m going to do that from now on! It is truly so easy. I’ve even taken this meal on a camping trip and used in a cast iron dutch oven. I’m going to make this for an upcoming party at our house and I’m excited to try the crock this time.
I’ll be on vacation this month and will be staying in a Airbnb. Wanting to know if this recipe will work in a InstaPot?
I think it would… just cook the meat first, then add the other ingredients and let them cook/heat through.
