Ham and Cheese Chili Dogs

My husband has some of the most unique ideas when it comes to food. Sound a little crazy I know, but this is so good and easy the family will truly be surprised. 

8 Slices Ham 1 1/2" thick and 6 inches long

1 8 count package hot dog buns
Fiesta shredded cheese
Home make relish

Place the buns on a cookie sheet and let them toast nice and golden.  Place the ham slices on cookie sheet with buns and allow to warm.
Homemade Bean Less Chili
1 lb ground meat
2 Tbs Flour
1 4 oz Can Tomato Sauce
2 Tablespoons Water
11/2 cup Chili Seasoning Mix
1 Tsp Red Chili Sauce (more if you go for spicy)
Salt & Pepper

Brown meat in large kettle.  Mix flour into meat string quickly to avoid lumps.  Pour in Tomato Sauce and water continuing to stir briskly until mixture is smooth. You might need to add more water at this point if the gravy is too thick.  Add chili seasonings, salt and pepper. Let simmer for thirty minutes while hot dogs cook.

Home Made Relish
1/2 Cup Dill Pickles (diced)
2 Jalapeno Peppers (diced)
3 Large Garlic Cloves (crushed)
1/4 Cup Diced Onion                                       

Mix all ingredients and let set in refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

Place relish spoonful of relish on bottom of each bun.  Add Ham and top with chili and cheese.  Return to oven until cheese is melted and gooey. ENJOY!

Sweet Potato Fries
2 Large Sweet Potatoes (Baked)
Cooking Spray

Leaving skin on slice cooked potato into strips and place on a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray.  Lay potatoes on pan, topping with additional cooking spray.  Add seasonings (ie, garlic salt, onion powder, sea salt etc) and bake at 400 for approximately 10 minutes or until brown flipping occasionally.  Using baked potatoes cuts down on cooking time and adds a crispier texture to the fries.
