Disclosure: Today’s post is sponsored by HORMEL® Chili, but my love for their chili is all my own!
When you think of Coney dogs, your mind probably wanders to Coney Island, New York. Would you ever think Michigan? Michigan may be known as the country’s cherry capital, but Coney dogs (chili dogs) are the signature of the state! As a matter of fact, the Coney dog originated in Jackson, Michigan. In Michigan, hot dogs are commonly served Coney style, topped with chili, onions, yellow mustard and possibly, shredded cheddar cheese (cheese is still up for debate!) . The key ingredient that makes a perfect Michigan chili dog is HORMEL® Chili No Beans.
To make a Michigan chili dog, it’s so simple! Cook your hot dogs anyway you like. Top with HORMEL® Chili No Beans. Add your shredded cheese (or toss it in your pan while you’re heating your chili), mustard and onions. Now you can say you’ve eaten a Coney dog!
