Chili Cheese Dog Soup

One of America's favorite foods is the chili dog. In my family, it's the chili cheese dog. The kids loved this soup - minced onions and all. The bowl in the photo is garnished with ketchup, mustard and cheese, but you can add any condiment you usually like on your hot dog.

Oh you just brought back memories of my childhood. I was not much of a bread eater, so I often took ingredients like this and ate it as a it!

Annie, You should add this. I love it! Today I was at the store and I snuck a piece of sausage from the demo guy. It smelled so good that I just followed my nose. I wanted to buy if but Joe was coming over to see what I was doing. Same old chicken and shrimp. I need meat I tell you! :D
