National Hot Dog Day and a new recipe

The goal of National hot dog day is to give much needed appreciation to the hotdog. The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council created this day to bring awareness to the all American Hot Dog. The day was first celebrated in 1991 and was led off with a hot dog lunch on Capitol Hill. Every year since then those at the capital hill celebrate the day with hotdogs. 

Frankfurters, closely related to the hot dog originated in Frankfurt Germany. The hot dog was first sold in St. Louis Missouri in 1880's. The St Louis Browns team would be selling these hot dogs at baseball games by the 1890s. Since that time hotdogs have been part of the sport of baseball.

8 beef hot dogs
1 bag shredded Colby-jack cheese
1 can chili
A bag of Frito chips
Sliced green onions (optional)

Heat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Add the hot dogs and cook until lightly charred and heated through. You can toast the buns if you want by turning the grill to low and placing the buns cut side down onto the grill until lightly toasted.
In a medium sauce pan heat the chili over medium-high heat until hot.
Add the hot dogs to the buns. Top with chili, shredded cheese, and crushed Frito chips. If you want to melt the cheese you can bake the hot dogs in the oven at 350 degrees F. on a baking sheet until the cheese has melted. Top with green onions.
