Keto Chili Cheese Dog Casserole

Sharing is caring!

This keto chili cheese dog casserole takes me back to the ball field!

Sometimes I miss the little things. I practically grew up on the baseball field which means I knew my way around the concession stand! There are some things I don’t miss and can’t believe I loved, like Pixi Sticks, ugh! One thing I did grow to love after years on the diamond was the all-American hot dog!

The hot dogs at my brother’s games were okay, but they led me down a road of trying different hot dog toppings and famous hot dogs from around the country. Did you know that almost every major city has some version of the hot dog they are famous for? Well, that may be exaggerating a little but I love me some Chicago and New York style hot dogs.

This dish is inspired by my go-to dog, the chili dog. I didn’t make coleslaw for this one, but I plan to when I have more time. I have been so busy lately that just getting dinner on the table is a great accomplishment, but if you have the time, and you enjoy homemade coleslaw go ahead and smother this dish in it. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you.

If you would like to make your chili a little more, runny add 1/2 cup of water.

Note: I have been doing most of my shopping at Walmart lately, and the lowest carb tomato products I have found are the Wild Oats organic brand, which is what I used for this recipe. You may be able to find lower carb options so make sure you update your nutrition data to reflect the difference!

The easiest way to figure out serving sizes is to weigh the food and divide it by the number of servings you'd like to make.

Love this recipe - it’s a new favorite! Weirdly enough, I was inspired one day to serve it over open-face hot dogs (complete with buns and ketchup), then sprinkle more cheese on top, which I then melted in the microwave. Wow!! A lot of food (very filling, and ate it with a fork) and super tasty! Thanks for this awesome recipe!
