The homegirlz were game once I threw in words they knew, like taco and pizza.
So this is what we did:
The Taco Dog:
We grilled some dogs and flour tortillas. (Just place the tortillas on the grill for 2 to 3 minutes and turn when you're satisfied with the grill marks and/or doneness.) We also put an assortment of fixin's; a blend of grated cheddar and Monterrey jack cheeses, diced onions, black olives, jalapenos, sliced green onions, and taco sauce. Put out whatever you like on a taco.
I slathered on some taco sauce, topped the dog with onions, cheese, black olives, and green onions.
We actually rolled the dogs burrito style. The flavor was amazing, they were light. I liked them much better than using a hot dog bun with all the bread.
About two weeks later, we tried these:
I infused some butter with garlic and drizzled it on the bun. We then placed grilled dogs on the buns and ladled pizza sauce over the dogs and sprinkled a combination of grated Parmesan and mozzarella cheese on top. The dogs were placed under the broiler until the cheese was sufficiently melted.
The pizza dogs were good, but my favorite no question - the taco dogs. The homegirlz concurred.
So when you have the summertime blues or you just want to change things up....go for it, who knows, you may may see Hot Dog Cordon Bleu or Hot Dog Carbonara on here sometime!
So tell me, really, who let the dogs out?
