Crunch, mmm.

CRUNCH… Mmmmm!

The sounds you will make when you bite into my nacho hot dog recipe.

(Don’t worry, everyone else around you will be making the same noises.)

CRUNCH… MMMM, oh wow. *splurp-smack* (finger licking) Crunch, crunch, MMMM!

This is the naturally occurring clamor of two Saturday night favorites coming together.

Nachos + Dogs = Palate Euphoria.

Don’t resist it.

  • Crema Mexicana (or sour cream)
  • Fresh cilantro

Simply load the dogs in the buns, cover them with crushed tortilla chips and California-made hispanic cheeses and bake them, just like you would bake a big tray of nachos. Then pile on the cool toppings and dinner is served!

Crunch, crunch, YES. Want. More. CRUNCH, mmmm!

Nacho Hot Dog Recipe

Yield: 8 hot dogs

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes


  • 8 hot dogs or polish sausages
  • 8 hot dog buns
  • 4 cups partially crumbled tortilla chips, any variety
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded California-made mexican cheese blend
  • 1 cup fresh salsa
  • 1 cups fresh guacamole
  • 1/2 cup California crema mexicana (or sour cream)
  • 1/2 cup freshly chopped cilantro


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the hot dogs in the buns and place them on a baking sheet. Pile 1/2 cup crumbled chips on top of each hot dog, followed by a heaping 1/4 cup of shredded cheese. Bake for 5-8 minutes, until the cheese is melty and the hot dogs are warmed through.
  2. Top each dog with salsa, guacamole, crema mexicana, and cilantro. Serve warm.

    What does Bobby Flay call it when he puts chips on burgers? Crunchify or something like that. It took me a second to remember that dinner scene from What About Bob. It was good but not better than the Tourette’s scene :)

    My kiddo is going to LOVE this idea. Great idea to combine two kid-loving summer finger foods. I am loving the simplicity of it. This is like a 10 minute dinner. Perfect summer food. Going to slice up some watermelon and call it a night. Easy. Thanks. Great pictures with the creme slowly dripped across.
