Tortilla-Wrapped Hot Dogs #SundaySupper

Football season is upon us once again, which means it's time for our 2nd Annual #SundaySupper Tailgating Party.  No matter what team you're rooting for, be it the New England Patriots (my fave team) or some other team, it's practically impossible (not to mention unthinkable) to watch a game without something delicious to eat.  

These Tortilla Wrapped Hot Dogs, which are a very popular street food here in Mexico, also make for a delicious snack to eat while watching your favorite team battle it out on the football field.   If you've never had a hot dog wrapped in a crisp golden fried tortilla, you have been missing out.  They are highly addictive and finger lickin' good.

Tortilla-wrapped Hot Dogs

  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 12 hot dog sausages (beef, pork, or turkey) 
  • Vegetable oil (for frying) 
  • Ketchup 
  • Mustard
  • Salsa 

Heat corn tortillas on a comal or griddle until soft and pliable.  Wrap tortillas around hot dog sausages, securing with a toothpick. You can leave the hot dog sausages whole, or slice them into quarters for a bite-size snack.  (Secure each piece with a toothpick.)

Heat about 1 cup of vegetable oil in a deep skillet or saucepan.  Carefully drop Tortilla Wrapped Hot Dogs into the oil and fry until the tortilla is crisp and golden.  Remove hot dogs to a paper towel lined plate to drain off any excess oil.  Serve Tortilla Wrapped Hot Dogs with your favorite condiments: ketchup, mustard, or a spicy salsa.  Enjoy!
