INGREDIENTS

(for 25 cm skillet)

12 AlWadi hot dogs

2-3 packages puff pastry

1 small onion, diced

450 g AlWadi ground beef

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

½ cup tomato sauce

½ cup ketchup

½ teaspoon cumin

2 teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon sugar

½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

¼ cup finely sliced green onion

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF/190ºC.
  2. Cut hot dogs into thirds.
  3. Cut puff pastries into triangles then half them lengthwise so you have roughly 1-inch by 5-inch triangle slices.
  4. Roll puff pastry around hot dog thirds, starting with the wider end of the pastry closest to the hot dogs, making “pigs in blankets.”
  5. Arrange the puff pastry wrapped hot dogs around a 10-inch skillet in two tight circles, leaving a hole in the center of the skillet.
  6. Bake 15-20 minutes, until dough puffs up and becomes golden.
  7. In another large skillet, sauté onions until translucent. Add the ground beef to the onions, then season with salt and pepper. Continue stirring ground beef until mostly cooked.
  8. Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, cumin, chili powder, and sugar to the ground beef and onions. Stir until everything is well mixed. Simmer 10 minutes.
  9. When chili and the pastry wrapped hot dog skillet are both ready, spoon chili to fill the hole in center of the skillet. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and bake another 12. 5-10 minutes until cheese is well melted.
  10. Garnish with diced green onion before serving.
