To make Bacon Chili Burrito Dogs, we need the following ingredients:
- Hot Dogs (2): For this recipe, we recommend using all-beef hot dogs, however, feel free to use your preferred type of hot dog.
- Bacon (4 slices): The bacon should be crispy and cooked before use.
- Tortilla (1 – 12 inch flour tortilla): The tortilla will be used to make the burrito around the hot dog.
- Onions (½ cup chopped): The onion adds a bit of crunch and flavor to the dish.
- Cheddar Cheese (¼ cup shredded): It’s preferable to shred the cheese yourself as it will melt better.
- American Cheese (3 slices): American cheese is a staple when it comes to hot dogs, but you can choose your favorite cheese for this recipe.
- Chili (1 cup – see notes): You can prepare your chili from scratch or use canned chili for a quicker version. If you prefer more spice, opt for a spicy chili.

The Recipe How-To
Now it is time to get into the nitty-gritty of how to make these delicious Bacon Chili Burrito Dogs. Don’t worry, it’s a simple recipe that can be accomplished with just a few steps.
Step 1: Cook the Bacon
Get your bacon cooking in your preferred way, whether that be on the stovetop or in the oven. Once it is cooked to your liking, remove the bacon and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to remove any excess grease.
Step 2: Prepare Your Tortillas
Warm up your 12-inch flour tortillas for 10-20 seconds in the microwave or on a stovetop skillet to make them more pliable. Lay them flat and place slices of American cheese over each tortilla.
Step 3: Cook the Hot Dogs
Grill, boil or sauté your hot dogs until they are cooked through. Be sure to keep them warm while you complete the other steps.
Step 4: Assemble the Burrito Dogs
Place a cooked hot dog in the center of each tortilla. Next, spoon some of your homemade bacon chili over each hot dog, making sure that each one is properly coated with chili. Top this off with some diced onions, shredded cheddar cheese or any other toppings you might enjoy.
Step 5: Fold and Heat Up The Burritos
To fold and cook, first fold in both sides of the tortilla towards the center, then fold up from the bottom side closest to you (about one inch). Keep folding until your burrito is tightly wrapped-up like an edible sleeping bag.
Once you’ve folded them all up, lightly brush some olive oil onto each burrito before searing them for 1-2 minutes on each side over medium heat on a pan/skillet.
You should now have perfectly cooked Bacon Chili Burrito Dogs that are sure to be a crowd-pleaser at any gathering!
Substitutions and Variations
In the world of cooking, substitutions and variations are a must. They allow us to try new things, mix flavors, and play around with different ingredients. So, if you’re feeling adventurous, here’s a quick guide on how to switch things up with our Bacon Chili Burrito Dogs Recipe!
First off, let’s talk about the chili. While we think our bacon chili is pretty darn delicious, there are plenty of other chili recipes out there that could work just as well. For a milder taste, try substituting with vegetarian chili or white chicken chili. For something a little more exotic, why not try using a Jamaican Jerk chili recipe? The possibilities are endless.
Next up, the cheese. While we love the classic American and cheddar cheese combo in this recipe, any shredded cheese will do! Mix it up with some pepper jack cheese for an extra kick or use queso fresco for a lighter cheese option.
Now onto the hot dog. If you don’t have any hot dogs on hand (or aren’t a fan of them), switch it out! Try using bratwursts or chorizo instead of hot dogs for a different twist on this recipe.
Moving on to the tortilla. The 12-inch flour tortilla in this recipe is perfect, but if you’re feeling extra hungry or want to add more crunch to your burrito dog, try using a crunchy corn tortilla instead.
Lastly, let’s talk about toppings. While bacon bits are essential for our bacon chili dogs recipe, you can always switch it up with some grilled onions or jalapenos for an extra spicy kick. Want to make it even more indulgent? Top them with some crispy cheese fries.
Overall, don’t be afraid to experiment with substitutions and variations in this recipe. Remember: cooking is all about creativity and finding what works best for you!
Serving and Pairing
Once your bacon chili burrito dogs are ready, they can be served in a variety of ways. You can choose to have them on their own or pair them with some delicious side dishes.
One classic pairing option for chili cheese dogs is to serve them with French fries or tater tots. You could also opt for onion rings, potato salad, or coleslaw as delicious and complementary sides.
For those who want something lighter, a crisp green salad would also work well. The combination of the warm, cheesy dog with the cool and refreshing greens would make for a nice contrast of textures and flavors.
If you’re looking for a beverage pairing to go along with your bacon chili burrito dogs, you might consider a cold beer or a diet soda if you prefer something without alcohol. A margarita or frozen daiquiri may also be a great fit for these spicy hot dogs.
Finally, when it comes to serving this dish, consider garnishing each dog with some freshly chopped bacon bits and shredded cheese. This will add an extra dimension of flavor and an eye-catching pop of color to your presentation.
Remember: the ultimate goal is to create the ideal dining experience that satisfies all senses – from taste and smell to sight and touch – whether you’re serving a family dinner or hosting a party. Enjoy!
Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
If you’re like me, you love the idea of having leftovers for the next day’s meal. Luckily, the Bacon Chili Burrito Dogs Recipe is perfect for storing and reheating.
To store leftovers simply wrap each individual burrito in aluminum foil or plastic wrap and place them in a large container or Ziploc bag. Make sure to label the container with the date and contents so you can quickly identify it later on.
As for reheating, there are a few methods you can utilize. The easiest way is to simply pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes or until heated through. However, if you want your burrito to maintain its crispy texture, I recommend reheating it in the oven or toaster oven at 350°F for approximately 10-12 minutes.
If you plan on making this recipe ahead of time, follow all of the instructions up until baking. Instead of baking them right away, tightly wrap each burrito individually with aluminum foil and place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to serve them, take them out of the fridge and let them come to room temperature before placing them back in the oven to bake.
Remember that reheated burritos will never be as good as freshly cooked ones but this recipe remains delicious even when reheated. So, enjoy your bacon chili burrito dogs recipe at any hour of any day without sacrificing their delicious flavor and texture!
Tips for Perfect Results
To achieve the best results in making Bacon Chili Burrito Dogs, I’ve gathered some tips that can help you along the way.
First on the list is to cook the onions and bacon just right. You don’t want to end up with burnt onions and bacon bits that are too crispy. To avoid this, cook the onions in olive oil until they’re caramelized, and cook the bacon to a crisp but not overcooked texture. You need your onions and bacon to have that perfect flavor and texture so they enhance the dog burrito’s taste.
Next, use fresh ingredients – it will make a significant difference in making this recipe stand out. Use quality hot dogs and chili to ensure the best flavors possible. Freshly grated cheddar cheese is recommended for a more authentic flavor than pre-shredded cheese. And if you’re in a hurry, you can use store-bought chili or leftover chilli con carne from last night’s dinner.
When assembling the burrito dogs, place the filling in the center of each tortilla properly. The hot dogs should be cooked correctly (grilled is best), then wrapped with bacon before placing them in the center of each tortilla. This step is crucial to getting everything to fit nicely when rolling them into burritos.
For those looking for an extra kick, I suggest adding some heat by doubling the amount of chili added to each dog burrito. For those who enjoy extraordinary flavors, try experimenting with different types of chili like spicy hotdog chili recipes found online. Be creative!
Lastly, don’t be afraid to experiment with different cheeses that suit your taste preferences. Bobby Flay recommends using cheddar or American cheese while Los Angeles locals swear by using melted shredded cheese fries from their favorite fast-food restaurants as toppings.
By following these tips, you’ll surely impress yourself and everyone you serve these Bacon Chili Burrito Dogs!
