Southwestern-Style Hot Dogs

Source: Family Circle 6/18/02

Hot Dogs:
1 (1 pound) package hot dogs (8 dogs)
8 hot dog buns

Topping:
1/4 cup chopped, jarred pickled jalapeno chiles
1 cup shredded taco cheese blend

Hot Dogs
Prepare grill with hot coals or heat a gas grill. Grill the hot dogs for about 8 minutes total, turning several times during cooking.

Toast hot dog buns, if you wish. Slice each grilled hot dog lengthwise, three-quarters of the way through, being careful not to cut the dogs all the way through.

Topping
Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon chopped jalapenos into the slice in each hot dog. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of the cheese over the jalapenos on each hot dog.

Carefully grill hot dogs, without spilling any of the topping, for another 1 minute to melt the cheese. Place the dogs in the toasted buns.
