  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Add the ground beef to a large casserole dish or a disposable foil casserole pan. Crumble it up a bit and season with salt and pepper. Cover it loosely with foil so that steam can escape but also to prevent it from getting dry.

  2. Cook the ground beef for 15 minutes in the oven, then add the onions and garlic and cook for 15 more minutes. Drain the excess grease and crumble up the ground beef to desired size.
  3. Decrease the heat to 375 degrees. Add the chili seasonings to the ground beef and stir until evenly distributed. Add all remaining chili ingredients (except the toppings), and stir until well-combined.
  4. Place 4 State Fair Corn Dogs on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  5. Place the chili in the oven, covered, along with the corn dogs. Cook for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove the chili and corn dogs from the oven. Use an oven mitt to place the corn dogs over the chili. Add the chili toppings and heat, uncovered, for 5 more minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven, and serve!
