I have never seen chili with beans on a hot dog until the other day. At work in our vending machine, (here in Harrisonburg, Va.) there was a Nathan’s Hot Dog. I looked at the dog like Moses looking at the burning bush, (beef, not pork, hot dog). My mouth started watering because I had never had a Nathan’s in my life. Being in a vending machine, I did not expect much, but thought it had to be different that any other dog I could get around here. I plopped my $1.50 in the machine and got it out. It had chili on it, with beans.
After heating it up, I took a bite….ahhh, loved the dog, the chewiness and spicy flavour of the dog. The texture of the bun was a perfect marriage with the dog.
Scooped off the chili because of the beans.
I think beans are there so they don’t have to use more meat.
