    I made the "Chihuahua" hot dogs and thought they were pretty tasty. I only made the topping portion (without jalapeno) and put that over regular leftover hot dogs. I didn't think the pineapple had an overpowering flavor at all, it was very subtle. Of course that all depends on the salsa verde you choose. I'd try this recipe again and I'm looking forward to giving the other two toppings a try as well.
