    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
