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!
