Sausage Chilli Dogs

This is an altered item off my menu.  I'd planned just to make Sausage Chilli and serve it over noodles or with cornbread - depending on my mood.  My mood switched things up again, as it so often does, and because it was nice enough to grill, I went with Sausage Chilli Dogs!

served w/ Little Steve's fav M&C and corn
You will need:

1 bag Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Crumbles
1 can (about 26 oz) Tomato Sauce
3 tbsp Chilli Powder
Dash of Garlic Powder and Basil
1 can Black Beans
1 pack Hot Dogs

How you grill your dogs is your business.  Here is how you do the chilli:

Add Turkey Sausage to a pan and heat through.  Then, add half of the Tomato Sauce and stir.  Add Chilli Powder, Garlic Powder, and Basil.  I say 'dash' of Garlic because I know everyone has different feelings about Garlic; personally, I LOVE it.  Add the rest of the Tomato Sauce and Black Beans.  Simmer for about 15-20 minutes.



  1. Does he tell the corn "Mommy will see you later"? Chili Dogs with M&C are my faves too!

  2. LOL! It took me a few minutes to figure out what you were talking about...blonde moment.
