Hot dogs with toppings on a plate with tortilla chips
If You're All Out Of Buns, Here's The Hot Dog Taquito Hack You Should Try
By Alexander Billet
If you have plenty of hotdogs but lack buns, try substituting them for tortillas. Tortilla-wrapped hot dogs, also known as "hot dog taquitos," are delicious and easy to make.
A recipe on the Mission Foods website calls for adding chili, cheese, and jalapeño before baking the hot dog taquitos in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes.
You can also cook the rolled hotdog with shredded cheese and sliced red onion in a frying pan for 10 minutes in canola oil over high heat. There are even crispy air fryer recipes.
While you can use corn or flour tortillas, corn ones tend to be around 5 to 6 inches in diameter, making them the perfect length for your typical hot dog.
There are plenty of variations on what you can roll up with your hot dog, but some items might not always work in a taquito. A bacon-wrapped Sonoran hot dog may transfer well.
