Nacho-inspired hot dogs on a bed of tortilla chips with a drizzle of sour cream and topped with sliced avocado

Gluten-Free Nacho Dogs

As the 4th of July nears, I can guess that many of you are craving some all-American foods! Burgers, hot dogs, potato salad … anything comfort food meets summer food qualifies as good 4th of July food, in my opinion. Take for instance, these Gluten-Free Nacho Dogs. They are hot dog meets nachos – two foods that you’d get at a fair or enjoy at a ball game. Why not combine the two?

To create the dog part, obviously you’ll need hot dogs and gluten-free hot dog buns. I look for the best quality uncured hot dogs I can find, and now days there are many gluten-free hot dog buns to choose from, so pick your fave! To create the nacho part, I crushed some Xochitl corn tortilla chips and added shredded Mexican cheese, Xochitl’s salsa, and a few other toppings.

Just like the U.S. is a melting pot of people and cultures, this recipe is a melting pot of two delicious foods. I hope you enjoy it! Happy Independence Day!

      We don’t remember exactly which brand of buns we used in this recipe, but our favorite brand of hot dog buns is Schar, so it’s possible it was that one!
