cost per recipe: $12.83

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 hot dog
  • 1 1/4 pounds 90% extra lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Chunky Salsa
  • 8 flour tortilla (6-inch) or taco shells, warmed
  • 1 medium onion, diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  • Tips

    • Prep Ahead: You can prepare the beef mixture, cool it completely, then place into a resealable freezer bag (remove all air), seal the bag and refrigerate for up to 3 days.  Or, freeze for up to 3 months and thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.  Reheat in the skillet after cooking the hot dogs.
    • Recipe Note: You can pan-fry the hot dogs as shown above or you can grill them.  To grill, lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium.  Grill the hot dogs for 5 minutes or until hot.
    • Serving Suggestion: Try topping these chili dogs with a drizzle of yellow mustard!
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the hot dogs and cook until browned.  Remove the hot dogs, cover and keep warm.

  • Step 2

    Cook the beef and chili powder in the skillet until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.  Stir in the salsa.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 3

    Place 1 hot dog into each tortilla.  Top with the beef mixture, mustard, if desired, onion and cheese.

    I liked how easy it was to make. Just brown beef heat hot dogs and tadah! It was mildly spicy and If you are sensative at all a little sour cream on top helps cool that down. the tacos are good if you dont brown the tortillas before putting it all together but if you want a crunch I say make the effort.
