These Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs Are Perfect For Grilling

Hi Friends!!

Before I share with you the recipe for these incredible tex-mex hot dogs, I wanted to let you know that I was recently interviewed by Food Lovers Website and I would love for you to go and check out my conversation with Correen. You might find out a thing or two that you did not know about me! 😉

Now about those hot dogs…

On Memorial Day, apart from eating that delicious Frozen Mojito Pie, we also grilled a few things. Like these hot dogs.

I don’t think you can have a barbecue without hot dogs. Can you?

What Else Can You Put On A Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog?

I like hot dogs because you can dress them up anyway that you want; relish, onions, bacon, cheese, etc… It’s all up to you.

This time around I knew I wanted them wrapped in bacon because everything tastes better with bacon, but I wasn’t sure what else I was going to throw on there. You know…to make them more interesting.

I then remembered a hot dog stand I used to go to when I was in college and they served their hot dogs Mexican style – salsa, chile peppers, nacho cheese – the works. Their hot dogs were amazing. Especially after a long night of clubbing studying. Winking smile

What surprised me the most about these hot dogs was how impressed everyone was by them. I didn’t think you can impress with a hot dog, but I guess I can, and all I used were the few things that I already had in the fridge.

  1. Anything tastes better with bacon is SO true! We saw a recipe last weekend for bacon wrapped hot dogs dipped in a beer batter and deep fried. Talk about over the top and talk about how much I would LOVE to try one!!

  2. Wow! These are seriously impressive 🙂 My husband loves bacon wrapped anything, but hot dogs would be one of his favorites, I know already. Definitely making these for a summer bbq 🙂 Thank you!

  3. Last week I was in Europe for a few days, and we had a barbecue — funny enough, but we actually had some “tex-mex” hot dogs, and I thought they were the best of all! Now your recipe is making me want some more, especially topped with that gorgeous piece of avocado!

  4. Okay, you have no idea how badly I want one of those right now! That looks absolutely perfect! I love the combination of flavors… Next time I make hotdogs, this is the combination I’m using for sure! Thanks for sharing, Kate!

  5. I never thought I’d say this – but these hot dogs are beautiful! Don’t get me wrong…I love a good hot dog, but I sure never thought of them as beautiful…until now! Congrats on the interview. Great piece!

  6. Well, with a hot dog that looks like that – it’s no surprise that everyone was impressed! I mean, bacon & avocado?! What’s not to love! Can’t wait to try this combo =)

  7. Yum! I have to admit, I love a good hot dog. My bf is a fan of chili cheese dogs, but I prefer chicago style! Next time I think we will have to give the tex mex dog a try.

  8. I haven’t had a hot dog in ages, but your toppings are tempting me in the worst way…these look fabulous! Off to read your interview 🙂

  9. Oh my gosh, I have to show these to my boyfriend, he will go crazy! Avocado on a hot dog is probably the best idea I have heard of in months, years even. Will have to make these!

  10. This is one of our favorite things to make when we tailgate! We call them danger dogs- just cause all these random (sometimes ghetto) street vendors are always selling them in LA. Love the tex mex kick you added to them Kate!

  11. You can wrap anything with bacon and it will taste even better. But, I never thought of wrapping hot dogs with bacon! How did you come up with that idea!? I bet almost everyone here will give it a try. So easy we always have bacons in fridge and I’ll make sure to try this! Adding sour cream is an interesting twist (to me). That’s something we don’t have in the fridge all the time but I need to get a whole experience with your recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    I only wish I knew you in the real world, not the virtual one, I would have really valued the invitation to your barbeque and can’t get over how delicious your hot dogs looks.
