Hot Dog Pizza-Dillas

For the HEB Meal Maker Challenge Week 2, the featured ingredient was Hebrew National Hot Dogs.

When I think Hot Dogs, I think homemade corn dogs, barbecues, summer and grilling.

However, I wanted to do something unique, fun, surprising… delicious.

When I told my family about this recipe… they collectively turned up their noses.
Seriously, they looked at me like I had lost my mind.

Then they tasted these Hot Dog Pizza-Dillas … and they were hooked.

 


These are good.
Really REALLY good.

SURPRISINGLY good.

I wanted to create a family friendly recipe, but not do the expected.

When we hit Mexican restaurants, my kids order quesadillas or nachos.

Hot Dog Nachos just didn’t hold any appeal to me, so I decided to try Hot Dog Quesadillas with a twist.

Pizza.

Pizza and Hot Dogs – two things that are staples of every family’s meal plan.

Add in made in under 30 minutes and truly delicious… BOO YAH!

yes, I just said Boo-Yah.

It was almost a joke.. a test when I bought the ingredients for this recipe.

One bite in… it was no longer a joke.  This is a seriously delicious recipe.

 

These were devoured by everyone aged 5 to 50…

This is a recipe that will quiet the skeptics.

Honestly… it’ll quiet everyone in the kitchen because their mouths will be full of deliciousness.

Crisp tortillas, rich tomato sauce, hot, crisp Hebrew National Franks and some ooey gooey cheese…

How could you go wrong?

  2. These are so flipping cute! I’m not a fan of hotdogs, myself, but this recipe makes me want to make them for the kids more often. Love the photos!

    1. Thanks, Crystal! I’m kind of a hot dog snob 😉 I only eat them if they’re grilled and a bit charred 😉 Hot and steaming and crispy with the appropriate toppings:-)

      This *assignment* was really neat for me, because I was challenged! I really hope that you try these !
