Chili is no stranger to versatility. Hot dogs, fries, nachos, burgers, all are trusted companions of chili that formed unions with it that resulted in some of America’s favorite foods. But never has the humble donut entered the ring. Until now.
With bright eyes, empty stomachs, and a can of Hormel’s chili in tow, we recently fried up our newest delicacy, the Chili Billy Donut, in honor of the release of Hormel’s new Chili Creations cookbook.
Taking inspiration from a Texas staple, the corn chip pie, the Chili Billy Donut comes with all the fixings. It starts with an easily made donut made from canned biscuits. A savory combination of Hormel Chili frosting and queso icing lie on top of the plush dough, which is then topped with salty corn chips. The result is undeniably as good as it sounds.
Just check the video above to see for yourself. The proof is in the puddingー er, chili.
The full recipe for the Chili Billy Doughnut can be found in Hormel’s yet-to-be-released Chili Creations cookbook, which you can be a part of as well!
Up until August 29th, Hormel will be accepting recipe submissions, the most creative and tastiest of which will be featured in the upcoming book, right next to our donut and Hormel’s own inventive dishes. These can be anything from something you’d bring to the cookout to a midnight snack, so get wild and get cookin’!
