Crunch, mmm.

CRUNCH… Mmmmm!

That’s 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.

Remember “Bob” from the old movie What About Bob?

My kids have recently discovered this movie and watch it over and over, cackling every time.

But I digress… With this week’s “Dog Days of Summer” Nacho Hot Dogs Recipe, Bob has got nothing on you.

Crunch, oh yeah, Mmmmmmmmmm.

Here’s the Breakdown:

  • Bun
  • Hot Dog
  • Crumbled Tortilla Chips (These could be your favorite seasoned tortilla chip)
  • Loads of oozy melty cheese
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Crema Mexicana (or sour cream)
  • Fresh cilantro

Simply load the dogs in the buns, cover them with crushed tortilla chips and cheese 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!
