Chili the Kid
The chili dog is a signature at Dog Haus, a gourmet hot dog chain that originated in California and now has 35 locations in several states. This dog is topped with the works—cheese, housemade chili, crispy onions and chipotle aioli. It’s hearty fare for hungry fans.

½ cup mayonnaise
2 garlic cloves
1½ tbsp. lime juice
4 beef hot dogs
4 Hawaiian hot dog buns, sliced
¼ cup butter, softened

1 cup housemade chili
