Reduced Fat Chili Dogs

From Family Circle, May 2008

1 can (15 ounces) red kidney beans, drained, rinsed and coarsely mashed
1 can (8 ounces) no-salt-added tomato sauce
2 teaspoons sugar or Splenda
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon dried oregano
8 fat-free hot dogs (or chicken or turkey dogs)
8 hot dog rolls
½ cup reduced-fat 4-cheese Mexican-blend shredded cheese
1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped

In a medium-size saucepan, combine beans, tomato sauce, sugar, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring.

Spray a stovetop grill pan or skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Grill hot dogs for about 5 minutes, turning halfway.

To serve, place hot dogs in rolls. Spoon chili over the top of each. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of the cheese and some of the chopped onion.
