Cold hot dog salad

8 hot dogs (any variety)                                     

  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed
  • 1/2 lb penne pasta
  • 1/4 cup brown mustard
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup relish
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder                            
  • Directions

    Cook pasta according to directions and set aside.

    1. Cut hotdogs on the diagonal into 1/4 inch pieces and combine in a mixing bowl with the chilli powder until pieces are evenly coated.
    2. In a pan on high heat, brown both/all sides of the dogs.
    3. Add hotdogs to the pasta with the beans and remaining condimants and cool in refrigerator for 4 hours. Could also be served hot I suppose.
    4. Try adding chopped tomatoes too. Also good to try without ketchup and adding saurkraut and extra mustard.
