Skinny Chili Cheese Dog Casserole 

This Skinny Chili Cheese Dog Casserole is super easy to make and requires just 5 ingredients! This casserole combines two comfort food favorites-chili and hotdogs! It’s definitely a crowd pleaser!

Makes 6 (1 chili dog with 1/2 cup chili ) servings 

 

What ingredients do I need to make this Skinny Chili Cheese Dog Casserole?

  • Chili-either canned Turkey Chili with Beans or 3 1/2 cups of my Zero Point Crockpot Chili. You can find the recipe for my Zero Point Crockpot Chili HERE.
  • Hebrew National 97% fat free hot dogs-This brand of hotdogs are only 1 smart point each. I get these at my local Walmart or Kroger store next the regular hotdogs. 
  • Reduced fat cheddar cheese– I use Velveeta Shreds. I get this brand of cheese at my local Walmart store. You can use fat free if you aren’t able to find a reduced fat cheddar cheese. 
  • Pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls– you may substitute these crescent rolls for the two ingredient if you prefer.
  • White onion– minced

 

 

Can I use the Two Ingredient Dough ( self-rising flour + non fat Greek yogurt) instead of the reduced fat crescent rolls?

Yes. You can use the two ingredient dough as a substitute for the reduced fat crescent rolls.  

Directions: Combine 1 cup self rising flour and 3/4 cup non fat Greek yogurt ( use a VERY thick Greek yogurt like Chobani or Fage) together in a bowl; mix until dough forms. Transfer to a floured work surface and knead dough. Add a bit more flour if needed to keep dough from being too sticky, for about 3-5 minutes. Roll dough on floured surface and cut into 6 dough strips. Roll each hot dog with one dough strip.  

Can you freeze this casserole?

Yes! This casserole can be placed in the freezer for up to a month. 

Cover the freezable casserole dish in aluminum foil and freeze for later. When you are ready to eat it, thaw it out in the fridge overnight, and heat as directed.

How do I make this Skinny Chili Cheese Dog Casserole?

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl combine chili and minced onion. Mix until well combined. 

Spread 2 cups of the chili mixture at the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.

Cover each hotdog with a crescent roll and place in baking dish, top the covered hot dogs with chili mixture.

Spread remaining chili evenly over hotdogs and top the casserole with reduced fat cheddar cheese.

Cover with aluminum foil and cook for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly.

Notes

Can I use the Two Ingredient Dough in place of the reduced fat crescent rolls?

Yes. You can use the two ingredient dough as a substitute for the reduced fat crescent rolls.  Mix 1 cup self rising flour and 3/4-1 cup non fat Greek yogurt ( the thicker the better) together in a bowl; transfer to a floured work surface and knead dough. Add a bit more flour as needed to keep dough from being too sticky, for 3-5 minutes. Roll dough on floured surface and cut into 6 dough strips. Then roll up each hot dog with one dough strip.  

Can I use Zero Point Crockpot Turkey Chili instead of canned Turkey Chili?

Yes, here's the recipe for my Zero Point Crockpot Chili:

Ingredients:

1 pound 99% ground turkey
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15 oz) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15 oz.) pinto beans drained and rinsed
1 can (15 oz.) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 can ( 14 oz) diced tomatoes
2 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 cups water
1 Tbsp chili seasoning powder
1/2 tsp of cumin


DIRECTIONS:

Spray a skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add ground turkey, onion and garlic powder and cook for about 7-10 minutes or until the meat is completely browned. Drain and transfer the cooked ground turkey to the bottom of a slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients, and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours.

great recipe! I did some kidney beans on the side for a family member who doesn't eat beans and just mixed it in with my serving at the end. Made it with the hormel turkey chili and some ball park turkey franks. Deeeelish!
