I celebrated Labor Day with these delicious dogs. The chili is light and the dogs are super-light–so I only spent 318 calories per serving on these. And because I wanted a care-free dinner, I just tossed some grapes and pretzels on as sides.
Turkey Chili Dogs:
4 Lean Hot Dogs (I use Hebrew Nationals 97% FF– with only 45 calories per dog)
4 Hot Dog Buns (about 110 calories each)
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 pound lean ground turkey breast
1/3 cup low sodium navy beans
1/3 cup low sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon White pepper
1/4 teaspoon Cumin
Dash of hot sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
2-1/2 teaspoons Ancho Chili powder
1 Jalapeno, minced
2 Light cheese wedges (Such as Laughing Cow Cheese Brand)
1/2 white onion, chopped
16 Pepperoncini Rings
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Pepper
Boil or grill hot dogs according to package instructions.
In a medium nonstick skillet, add olive oil. When oil is heated, add turkey breast and begin break up as it cooks. Add the garlic, onion, jalapeno, hot sauce and all seasonings to the chicken breast and mix in while continuing to cook turkey through. Once turkey is no longer pink and onions are tender, add the chicken broth and the cheese. Break up and stir cheese to incorporate it into the rest of the mixture. All chili to simmer on low for about 5 minutes.
Toast hot dog buns, if desired, and place hot dog in the bun. Top with 1/4 of the chili and 4 pepperoncini rings.
