Taco Dogs Recipe

I find it interesting to pile all kinds of different ingredients onto hot dogs. Tacos are one of my favorite things to eat so I decided to try putting taco meat on top of all beef hot dogs. The end result was amazing. Once again, I highly recommend using all beef hot dogs because I feel they have better flavor. These hot dogs are topped with taco meat, cheese, salsa, lettuce, and tomato. You can add additional ingredients as well such guacamole and sour cream. You can cook the hot dogs however you prefer; grilling, boiling, steaming, etc. I cooked them using an indoor grill pan. Enjoy.
