We love homemade chili especially when we’re entertaining. So we created this amazing Chili Party Ring with thanks to Hunt’s Tomatoes and BUSH’s Chili Beans for teaming up to sponsor this recipe. Plus video tutorial!
We’re wanted to show our Chili Pride with this chili dog skillet ring. It makes an awesome weeknight dinner that both adults and kids love. Or you can show off your hospitality and serve it for your next party.
If you’ve ever wondered about chili addiction, look no further! We’ve served it on game day and watched while our guests devoured it in minutes. There’s something epic about mouthwatering chili flavors, cheese pulls and biscuit pull aparts. No one can resist!
We’ve even made two for larger crowds. If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet, just use a round cake pan instead.
Often we think of chili as being the quintessential slow-cooker, but this recipe takes less than 30 minutes thanks to Hunt’s Tomatoes and BUSH’s Chili Beans.
The best chili is not too complicated and starts with vine-ripened tomatoes and slow-simmered chili beans. After that, all you need is some onions, seasonings and garnishes to make it a success.
Hunt’s Tomatoes are vine-ripened and diced, with BUSH’s Chili Beans coming cooked and seasoned. We added one 14-oz can of each for this dish, and it comes out perfect!
We love that Hunt’s tomatoes are vine-ripened in California, and BUSH’s beans has been a family-owned business for over 100 years in Tennessee. The quality really comes through in the flavors.
How to make the amazing chili party ring
There are two parts to make this dish. First, you use biscuit dough and hot dogs to make the ring in a skillet. Then while it’s baking, make the chili in a medium size pot or skillet.
To make the ring, cut hot dogs (or veggie dogs to go vegetarian) into 1 ½” pieces. Then tear pieces of biscuit dough in half and stretch them into a rectangular shape to wrap around each piece of hot dog.
Arrange them in an ovenproof skillet or pan to bake for 10-12 minutes. During this time, you can make the chili.
Fry one diced onion for a few minutes over medium heat before adding the spices and diced tomatoes:
Finally add the BUSH’s Chili Beans. There’s no need to drain the beans because you want the flavor from the sauce.
Let it bubble away for about 10 minutes, stirring every minute or two to prevent sticking on the bottom. It should be thickening somewhat and looking like chili.
Once the ring is golden, remove it from the oven. Then spoon the chili into the middle.
Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake for 10 minutes more. That’s it!
You can serve it right out of the pan as pull-aparts, or serve it onto small plates. You’ll love the delicious flavors and cheese pulls. So good!
