Bandito Chili Dogs

Edited to add: The script font I use for my recipe cards is CK Becky, a Creating Keepsakes font by Becky Higgins. You can to the CK website and download it for free. And you can find cheddar cheese soup in the soup aisle. The brand I use is Campbell's.

Ready for a new recipe today? Every Fall I make these Bandito Chili Dogs. I think I got the recipe from a Taste of Home publication several years ago. They're perfect for get togethers or game days and the fellas love them! I couldn't resist making a recipe card (4" x 6") using Karen Lockhart's Itty Bitty Hot Dog stamp. Who knew a hot dog stamp would come in so handy!? I colored the hot dog image with Copic Sketch markers, using the *splotch* method....simply tap the tips of the markers onto the stamped image randomly. I splotched some chili off the side of the hot dog and then added a few little black dots with a fine tip Copic black multiliner pen for some texture. I used a grey marker to make a shadow line underneath the hot dog. For the patterned paper, I chose a bandanna print from a scrap from my stash of papers. I pinked the edges and added a strip of black card stock to give the circle a bold element to rest on. I then distressed the edges of the white cream card stock with Ranger Distress ink and an Ink Blending Tool. Easy peasy!
Here's a photo of the Bandito Chili Dogs below. And let me answer some questions that may be running through your head.....YES, I know these are not healthy, and YES I know how much fat and calories these contain(most of the time we use Light Hotdogs if that matters :). But they're SOOOO good and easy to make!

Here's the recipe for you. You can copy and paste into a word document right from here:
Bandito Chili Dogs

1 (25 oz)can chili
1(10-3/4 oz)can Cheddar Cheese soup
1 package hot dogs(8)
1 package hot dog buns(8)
Fritos corn chips
mustard, if desired

Combine chili and soup in pan or crock pot. Heat through and serve over hot dogs. Crumble on a handful of Fritos chips. Squirt with mustard if you like. Great for game days or Fall get togethers. Double the recipe for more servings. Yeehaw!
I hope you all have a great weekend! I'm off to wrap Jordan's birthday gifts, prepare treat sacks and plan some games. Gotta make a run to town to purchase a gift for birthday party Josey is going to..might stop by the quilt shop also just for fun. Have a great weekend everyone!!

I love this card and the recipe. I can't find the script on the website. I wonder if it is no longer available?
