Add a taste of Spain to your weekend barbecue! These gourmet hot dogs are topped with crispy chips and a smoky tomato sauce.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 onion, thinly sliced

  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • 4 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar

  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 cup crushed barbecue-flavoured potato chips

  • 2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley


  • Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Add onion and garlic. Cook until onion starts to soften, 3 to 4 min. Add tomatoes, honey, vinegar, paprika, salt and ⅓ cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened but saucy, about 8 min.

  • Top hot dogs with tomato sauce. Sprinkle with chips and parsley.

  • 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.
