Homemade hot dog chili is so much better than the canned stuff and making this Instant Pot Southern Hot Dog Chili recipe is simple and easy! Unlike the traditional versions where you cook the hot dog chili long and slow; this recipe is made in a short time. Once you top it on your favorite hot dog, you will know why making this homemade Instant Pot Hot Dog Chili is worth the little extra effort!
If you read my Portillo’s Restaurant Review, you will know I LOVE hot dogs. When I go to different butcher shops, I will pick up a package of their homemade hot dogs to try out. From the store, I can’t resist a good Nathan’s, Sahlen’s or Sabretts dog.

Here is a video to show you how to make it step-by-step.
I have this great little hamburger grinder tool I got from Pampered Chef that I used to break down the meat. You don’t have to use one, but I recommend it because that is what grinds the meat into tiny pieces. This Amazon version: Chopstir Nylon Chopper does a great job also and it is a little cheaper.
The hot dog chili freezes well also. I will make a big batch and freeze half for later use. Enjoy!
