Cincinnati Chili Dog

Cincinnati chili sauce can be served in many ways and is most often served on top of spaghetti noodles. This chili sauce also goes quite well on top of a hot dog. We encourage demineralizing your hot dogs to lower the sodium, phosphorus, and potassium content. This recipe per serving has 18 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber. It’s also lower in phosphorus, potassium, and sodium than the typical chili cheese dog.
