I spied this recipe from the Taste and Tell Blog a few weeks ago and immediately added them to my menu plan.
Taco style hot dogs is a great twist to the classic all American hot dog (bun, dog, mustard, ketchup and some optional relish). I am a huge fan of homemade guacamole and salsa and thought these two things I love would definitely make any hot dog better! And they sure did! I loved all the extra flavor and fun that came with this idea of a taco dog! Grilling the tortilla just enough to melt the cheese and give it a light crisp was the perfect touch.
Summer isn't over yet, so hopefully you'll have time to enjoy these this year!
8 hot dogs, grilled
8 6-inch flour tortillas
Taco dog toppings:
red onion or green onion, chopped
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
Any other taco toppings you love
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
1. Prepare toppings
2. Heat grill over med-high heat and grill hot dogs until done.
3. Top each tortilla with guacamole, and salsa then the grilled hot dog, top with onion, tomato, cilantro, olives and lastly cheese. Press the cheese together to kind of seal the tortilla shut.
4. Lightly spray each side of the taco dog with cooking spray and grill over medium heat until the cheese melts and you have some light grill marks on your tortilla.
5. Dunk in more guacamole and salsa and enjoy!
Serves: 8 - one taco dog per person
