Take a break from Taco Tuesday with this gourmet Mexican dog.


  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels

  • 1 large tomato, finely chopped

  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

  • 2 tbsp lime juice

  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Top hot dogs with guacamole and salsa. Sprinkle with crumbled chips, if desired.

  • Recipe makes enough toppings for 8 hot dogs. We recommend barbecuing hot dogs for 5 to 10 min. (depending on size), until grill marks form and hot dogs are cooked through. Lightly toast buns on the grill, if desired. Serve hot.
