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


  1. Hot Dogs: Prepare grill with hot coals or heat a gas grill.
  2. Grill the hot dogs for about 8 minutes total, turning several times during cooking.
  3. Toast hot dog buns, if you wish.
  4. Slice each grilled hot dog lengthwise, three-quarters of the way through, being careful not to cut the dogs all the way through.
  5. 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.
  6. Carefully grill hot dogs, without spilling any of the topping, for another 1 minute to melt the cheese.
  7. Place the dogs in the toasted buns.
