I added 8 cut up hot dogs,, put it all in a 9X13 disposable casserole dish and froze it whole. The original recipe is below from the 'zaar.
*made this 4-27-09* The entire casserole is gone in one meal! I liked it but everyone else absolutely loved it.
Chili Tots Casserole Recipe #143773
There's something about the combo of these two fast food favorites. However, when you're scraping up pennies to afford rent, eating out isn't an option. This dish is affordable and great because you can make two and freeze one. Also, you can make this a Chili dog and tots casserole by adding bite-sized hot dog pieces to the chili and serving with buns.
