Summer Hot Dog Wraps
Why I Love This Recipe
Fire up your grill – and wrap up a great meal for kids! Wrap grilled hot dogs with pineapple salsa in flavored tortillas. Then grill until they’re sealed and ready to eat in hand. Crushed pineapple packs sweet flavor and vitamin C in this fruity salsa.
Ingredients You'll Need
4 (2 ounces each) turkey hot dogs
4 (8-inch) tomato-flavored tortillas
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple in juice, drained
1/4 cup chopped cilantro or parsley
1 tablespoon canned chopped green chiles, drained
1 green onion, chopped
Grated peel of 1 lime
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (optional)
Grill the hot dogs over medium heat, about 6 to 8 minutes, until cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Turn them once to brown evenly.
Remove hot dogs from the grill; slice in half lengthwise.
Combine pineapple, cilantro, chiles, onion and lime peel in medium bowl to make salsa. Spread 2 tablespoons salsa on a tortilla, then top with both halves of a sliced hot dog. If desired, spoon 2 tablespoons cheese over the hot dog. Fold the short sides (bottom and top) of the tortilla over the frank, then fold the long sides so they overlap. Repeat to make three more hot dog wraps.
Grill the wraps with the wrap opening down for about 4 minutes until the tortilla is lightly browned and sealed together. Turn the wraps once as they grill.
