Now, before listing the answers, let's talk about the chili dog...
A friend from church gave me the vegetarian chili. The next time that she saw me she asked if I liked it. I told her honestly, very much! I didn't reveal, however, that I'd enjoyed it on top of a hotdog, and that two kinds of cheese were sprinkled on top and some BBQ sauce, too. Yummy!


OK, here are the answers:

I have no trouble at all mixing vegetarian with carnivorous food - as long as I am not vegetarian.

Those questions are tricky aren't they? Makes you wonder why they called them those names in the first place.

I've had and made vegetarian chili, and with absolutely no meat I think it's missing a key flavor that added spice just can't obscure. However, on top of a hot dog (especially a meaty one like Nathan's or Hebrew National) I think it could be fine.

I agree with Grant--I never enjoy vegetarian chili as much as one with meat. I do like it with turkey and I'd mix without regret as long as I wasn't a vegetarian. I was for a while, but I didn't reap any benefits and it was a nuisance.

I see nothing wrong with vegetarian chili on a hot dog. My mom does it with turkey dogs to make it healthier.
