*Ground beef or beef hotdogs would also work well here.

*Make this vegetarian/vegan friendly by using beans in place of ground turkey in the chili recipe and using your favorite tofurkey dog.

*You can make this into a Chili Cheese Dog by adding reduced fat cheddar cheese!

*You can make this low carb by leaving out the rolls. This will reduce your carbs by around 36g depending on brand.
