Celebrate National Pigs in a Blanket day with chili cheese dog fondue.  Cocktail smoked sausages are wrapped in bread dough and then dipped in a chili cheese sauce.  You can use your favorite brand of canned chili for this recipe or opt for homemade chili.  While this dish may not be the healthiest, it's okay to indulge every once in awhile.
