Southwestern Hot Dogs

"Plain hot dogs are dressed up with an appealing Tex-Mex flavor in this recipe," reports Marion Stanley of Joseph, Oregon. "I made these stuffed hot dogs for my kids when they were young and later for my grandchildren."

    This recipe wasn't bad, but we didn't think it was that good either. I think it needed a bit more of the mayo/salsa mix. We liked the crunch of the tortilla chips though. I put the hotdogs on the rolls before putting them in the oven, so that made the roll a bit crispy as well (yum). Not sure I'd try this again, there are just other hot dog recipes I like better.
