    Love the idea, I’ve never tried hot dogs in the slow cooker before. They certainly look cute and are pretty tasty, but not crazy over the texture of the dogs. Maybe I’ll try cooking them a little less time, or crisping them up first.

    My husband and I thought this was pretty good. I thought it was lacking something, but I did leave out the green chilies (I don't like spicy food), so that might be why. Next time I'll add in some of the onion to the slow cooker. Maybe some green pepper or something too. We did like this, so we'd make it again either way. It's a great way to use leftover hot dogs.

    These taste just like the coneys you get from Sonic and they are so easy to prepare. One of our favorite meals.

    Family loves the recipe it is something differently, but tastes great. We make it every time we have a chane.

    A great easy fast recipe. I agree with 5hungrykids in that it's not much different than regular chili dogs, but I also like how it all cooked in the crockpot together. My family loved it.
