"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."
