I love spicy, delicious and flavor packed posts like this one! Makes me wanna go back and fire up the grill again lol The weather is just gorgeous and perfect for the grill this year since it’s not too hot (yet). So the hubby (who calls himself the grill master by the way lol) doesn’t mind grilling every single day for us, and my pickiest littlest eater doesn’t mind a bite or two from anything we’re grilling. Oh and another bonus, I just get to do very little prep and enjoy a fabulous meal at the end! Seems like a win win to me 🙂
I know I mentioned this before, but since we moved to the suburbs a few months ago I’ve been lucky to have really nice neighbours. We walk our kids to the bus stop everyday, we have playdates after school, we celebrate some long weekends and Holidays together and we share plenty of food back and forth. Today I’m sharing those crazy delicious hot dogs with one of my neighbours. First of all, they’re SO GOOD, plus I know her family LOVES hot dogs, and I also know they love Nachos so it’s the perfect dinner to put a smile on everyone’s face! 🙂
Oh another thing I love in this neighbourhood is my Walmart which happens to be 5 minutes away! So it has become my go to store whenever I’m grocery shopping or when I’m rushed to pick up a thing or two. The girls also happen to love it, because every time they help me with grocery shopping they get a little toy from Walmart 🙂 Now everyone’s happy 🙂 So last week I picked up the Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs from Walmart and I loved the NO artificial stuff, No preservatives and No nitrates with same great taste—actually even better tasting! I couldn’t wait to get them to on the grill!
Before I go into recipe details of these amazing hot dogs, I have to tell you that my neighbours devoured them! They were declared the BEST hot dogs they’ve had and they’ve made it again the same week! Imagine every single bite is a combo of delicious grilled Oscar Mayer hot dog, cheddar cheese, fiery salsa, smooth avocado, spicy jalapeño, crunchy red onion, tangy sour cream and crunchy chips! It’s like you wish it never ends lol I can’t urge you enough to try this recipe!
Ok so here’s how it goes, start by putting your Oscar Mayer hot dogs on a medium high grill and toss it around every couple of minutes. Have your toppings ready—sliced avocados, jalapenos, shredded cheese, salsa ( I love this Restaurant style Mexican Salsa—it’s delicious and takes just minutes to whip in your food processor), tangy sour cream (sour cream, lime juice, salt and cilantro) and some crushed chips. I can tell you it’s perfect as it is, but you can totally add in more of your favorite toppings!
Once the hot dogs are ready, place a handful of cheese at the bottom of your hotdog buns and start piling up the nachos toppings however you prefer. More of this less of that, make it your own and dig into that perfect bite! Pure LOVE! Another thing I would do if I’m having friends over, is to have the toppings separately in bowls and make a fun Nachos Hot Dog Bar, so everyone can assemble their own and have fun playing around with different toppings! If your kiddos are eating these hot dogs with you, just remove jalapeños completely and make sure you keep some of the salsa aside before adding jalapeños to it too 🙂 Try these this weekend with friends, you’ll totally ENJOY 🙂 Here’s a fabulous collection of recipes and inspiration from Oscar Mayer!
Grilled Hot Dogs Loaded with Nachos Toppings
- 1 pack of Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs (your favorite type)
- Hot dog buns
- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup of Salsa (store bought or this: )
- 2 avocados thinly sliced
- 1 red onion , thinly sliced
- 3 jalapeños thinly sliced (more or less to taste)
- 1 cup of tangy sour cream sauce (below)
- 1/2 cup of crushed chips (your choice)
Tangy Sour Cream Sauce:
- 2/3 cup of sour cream (any type of fat concentration is ok)
- juice of 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons of minced cilantro
- pinch of salt
Preheat your grill to medium high.
Place the Oscar Mayer hot dogs on the grill and let them cook for 2 minutes before turning them over.
Turn the hot dogs and grill them for 2 more minutes, then start swirling them around the grill to get the desired level of char you prefer on your hot dogs.
On a large tray, have all your toppings ready in separate bowls.
Arrange the hot dog buns on the tray, add a handful of cheese to each hot dog bun.
Place the hot dogs over the cheese and it will melt slowly, then start adding the toppings one at a time to your taste and enjoy! 🙂
