Southwestern-Style Hot Dogs

Recipe Ingredients

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

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.
