Opening day for the Major League occurred a few days ago. Summer is coming and it’s time for barbecue and camping trips where hot dogs and other pound packers will be eaten in abundance. Let’s make sure we can stock our coolers with some healthier products.
While researching for the right hot dog, which is the tricky part in this recipe, I found that the Hebrew Nationals 97% fat free beef franks had the lowest calorie and fat count. While not necessarily producing the highest count in protein at 6 grams, it is still the way to go!
When seeking out a bun for your 97% fat free beef franks, it is best to go sprouted. Eziekel is a prominent brand of sprouted breads that can be found at most commercial grocery stores out here on the west coast. There are others that would certainly suffice. Just make sure you are going for sprouted or spelted hot dog buns
For our chili ingredient I have chosen a brand of my favorite vegetarian chili. While we are packing on chili as well, I wanted to make sure it wouldn’t be too heavy. This chili has great flavor! It is a little costly at over $2 per can and is mostly found at specific health food grocers. If you are having a camping party or just watching the ball game with some friends, then pick up 3-4 cans. Keep the chili cooking banquet style.
What’s a chili dog without some cheese on it? Shredded soy cheese is available for those who don’t do dairy. Also dice up some green and red bell peppers and onions.
