My grill has been getting a lot of use lately. It’s been a hot summer in Florida, so I haven’t been using my oven much. Nathan’s Famous Beef Franks are some of my favorite foods to grill. I especially enjoy them topped with chili, cheese and onions, and of course King’s Hawaiian Hot Dog Buns. Mmmm.
One of the secrets to a good chili dog is using homemade chili, and I have a delicious homemade hot dog chili recipe for you. Nathan’s Famous Beef Franks are made with 100 percent premium beef!
Also, don’t forget a squeeze of Heinz Mayochup. I’m obsessed with this stuff! Heinz mashups taste great on everything! Perfect as a sauce or for dipping. And it’s so good with fries too.

These homemade chili dogs are worth the little bit of effort they take to prepare. Seriously, they’re the BEST chili dogs. The chili is so much better than the stuff that comes in a can. There’s really no comparison.
Choosing the right bun is important too. In my opinion, nothing compares to King’s Hawaiian Sweet Hot Dog Buns. The unique “top-cut” design of King’s Hawaiian Hot Dog Buns keeps all your favorite flavors together in every bite. Their unique soft and fluffy texture with just a touch of sweetness makes them irresistibly delicious.
I love effortless entertaining. You don’t have to spend the day in the kitchen or spend a lot of money to have friends and family over. Just fire up the grill. Over the weekend, I picked up some of my grilling favorites at Publix and put together this simple and affordable spread. I grilled Nathans Famous Beef Franks and served them with Heinz Mayochup, King’s Hawaiian Hot Dog Buns, Peach Honest Tea, and a variety of toppings like my homemade chili.
Also, I kept my prep to a minimum by picking up some potato salad from the Publix deli.
Then to cool things down, I made a non-alcoholic Peach Bellini Iced Tea with Honest Tea. This drink is so delicious and is incredibly easy to make.
Simply pour some Peach Honest Tea into a glass over ice. Add a few frozen peach slices and a little Fresca for some bubbles. Your friends will be so impressed by this simple drink! Honest Tea is organic, delicious and just a tad sweet – making it the perfect tea for this refreshing summertime drink. Honest Tea offers a variety of refreshing flavored teas to suit your taste buds.
