The Ultimate Nacho Cheese Dog Recipe
You gotta love a good cheese dog! Here is my recipe for grilled hot dogs topped with super easy homemade nacho cheese, pickled jalapeno peppers and crushed tortilla chips. Nachos on a hot dog!
Servings: 8 cheese dogs
FOR THE HOMEMADE NACHO CHEESE
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup milk
- 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- ¼ cup pickled jalapeno juice or more as needed
- Salt to taste
- Pickled jalapeno slices
- Crushed corn tortillas
- Diced tomato if desired
- 8 lightly toasted buns
Make the cheese first by heating a pan or pot to medium heat. Add butter and melt.
Stir in flour and whisk to incorporate. Cook about a minute. The mixture will foam up a bit.
Reduce heat to low. Slowly whisk in milk and simmer while whisking until the mixture thickens, about 2-3 minutes.
Stir in the cheese a bit at a time until all of the cheese is melted and very creamy.
Stir in pickled jalapeno juice. Keep warm.
Heat grill to medium heat. Add hot dogs and grill them a couple minutes per side, until you get some nice char marks.
Serve the hot dogs on lightly toasted buns, then top with nacho cheese, crushed tortilla chips, pickled jalapeno slices, and diced tomato, if desired.
