  • Taco meat prepared (I mix 1 pound ground beef with 3 tablespoons of our homemade taco seasoning), optional
  • Taco shells we used crunchy, but you could make these on tortillas as well
  • Hot dogs plus taco seasoning, to taste if not using taco meat
  • 1 can kidney beans rinsed, drained, warmed
  • Lettuce shredded
  • Tomatoes seeded and chopped
  • Sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • Green onion sliced
  • Black olives sliced
  • Taco Bell Spicy Ranch salad dressing for topping optional


  • Cook the taco meat if you are using it.
  • Warm the shells per the package instructions.
  • If you are not using taco meat, sprinkle the dogs with taco seasoning. Grill the dogs as desired.
  • Assemble the tacos by adding the meats (taco and dogs) followed by the toppings.
  • Drizzle with salad dressing if desired and serve.
