Our chief photojournalist, Derrick Larr, and his wife, Shannon, are really the perfect pair. One is a complete angel, and the other is a little devil in the kitchen. We won’t tell you which one is which, you’ll have to find out in this episode of Derrick Doesn’t Cook.

Chili Cheese Dog Bake


  • 2 (15 oz.) cans chili with beans (Hubby prefers I use 3 cans for a full casserole dish)
  • 8 hot dogs
  • 1 (28 oz.) package frozen tater tots
  • 8 oz. cheddar cheese salt pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F
  2. Lightly grease 9×13 pan.
  3. Stir the chili and the sliced hot dogs together in the bottom of the pan.
  4. Layer the tater tots on next.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle cheese on top of the tots and bake for about 10 minutes, until the cheese melts.
