This is exactly what little hot dogs hope they’ll grow up to be. Smothered in chili. Covered in cheese sauce. Sprinkled with crumbled Nacho tortilla chips and jalapenos. Cheese and heat, a marriage made in heaven! And of course there’s some nice cool sour cream topping it all off. These nacho hot dogs are the stuff dreams are made of!
With every bite you get crunch, heat, cool and cheese! Perfect! And of course you can kick your dogs up even more by using a really spicy chili. I use the zesty cheese sauce from La Preferida for this and other dogs that call for cheese. It’s smooth and creamy and has a little bit of a spiciness to it. Make sure you pile your toppings high. Get every inch of the dog covered with goodness.
Slicing your hot dogs before cooking helps ensure that the toppings don’t slide off. And that’s a good thing!
These dogs are also great (maybe greater!) with a few added shakes of favorite Mexican-inspired hot sauces, such as Cholula.
Also try my other variation on nacho hot dogs. Same concept, different toppings.
My Home Run hot dog chili is also fantastic on these dogs!
