    I don't exactly like the concept of putting blackbean & corn salsa on top of a hotdog. You can have just as little calories and fat using Hormel's Vegetarian Chili with Beans, fat free mozzarella, whole wheat bun, and a 100% chicken or beef hotdog. Then it is most definitely a chili-dog! - 4/19/12

    Sorry, but calling this recipe 'chili' is NOT appropriate. This is a 'salsa' dog at best. My family did not care for the salsa on a hotdog and begged me to whip up some of my homemade chili; which I gladly did. - 1/14/12

    Not a bad concept. But definitely not a chili dog. Eating healthier is important, but I'd rather have a classic chili dog once in a while as opposed to this. Moderation. - 2/16/12

    This is so delicious! I put it in a food processor to mix the flavors better. Roasted the hot dogs and cut in half. Served on half of a folded Sara Lee thin whole wheat bun, mustard, 2T of salsa, with a sprinkle of red. fat sharp cheddar - seriously delicious. Thank you SO much Chef Meg! - 1/16/12

    Good recipe but it's not a chili-cheese dog if there is no chili! May I suggest keeping the chili, skipping the corn, and using only half of the bun as an alternative? - 1/2/12

    Humm - as a chicka that lives a high lean prtein, moderate carbs & tries for only healthy fats I'm not sure I would subs. black beans. Whole wheat bun yes, reduced fat cheese for sure, and a turkey dog, but I think I'd make some healthy lean chili and go that route instead! (-: - 6/19/12

    I love chili dogs, and, though this sounds good, it's not a chili dog.
    Call it what it is - a black bean relish dog. - 5/18/12

    This is a great substitution. For those looking for the chili, original chili is beans and tomatoes with chili spice, only with meat when called "chili con carne". I never understood the need for meat on meat anyway. Never thought I would like black beans but now eat them almost everyday. - 1/7/12

    Eating healthy does not instantly turn our minds to mush, this is NOT a chili dog this is a salsa dog. Putting the word chili in the recipe names do not make it so. Really disappointed in how many pictures do not match the recipe, I expected better from this site. - 9/14/12

    This was really good. My brother made them for us for dinner one night. The only thing I will do different next time is to heat the salsa. I prefer my hot dogs hot. We told my dad about this recipe and he is anxious to try them. He's coming to visit next week, guess what's for dinner. - 10/7/11

    These were a welcome change for our family after a series of fairly bland recipes... we had a hard time not having just one and have added this to our weekly recipes. - 1/10/13

    I'm always disappointed when the picture doesn't match the recipe. But the title doesn't say "Chili Dog" it says "Chili Dog Makeover." And it is a very good one! This is a really great, all-purpose black bean salsa, though you need to add a bit of salt if you used salt-free beans and corn. Delish! - 12/20/12

    I will be making this on thursday but will use hebrew national hot dogs, and I will use food processor for the other ingridients. I will cut the hot dogs in half and grill them in a pan and I think I will add tortilla strips on top for crunch, cant wait. - 6/19/12

  • Had this for dinner tonight but without tomatoes bc my hubby won't eat them and I didn't have any cumin so I just added some onion powder and garlic powder. We both thought these were delicious and different from the other run of the mill recipes we've been making lately - 11/18/13
