Bean Chili Dog

Happy National Hot Dog Day! Did you know, today 7/29 is the day to enjoy hot dogs! 

While they are always satisfied with our stomachs, especially at the peach party or sports game, you must notice they have several kinds.

When I was in LA, I loved original hot dogs to enjoy this-is-American-food top with relish, ketchup and mustard. Later on, I moved to Seattle and they loved to add cream cheese since Seattle’s dairy is so good. And, we moved back to California and are currently living in Hispanic community, so this is the time to enjoy hot dogs in the Tex-Mex version! 

Would you like your hot dog to be a little spicier than original? If so, this is the one for you today!

Mmm, chili and hot dogs are so good! I didn’t want to make the pic too messy so I poured a little, but don’t worry, after I shot the best one, I poured another spoonful to my hot dog!
