  • 4 100% all beef hot dogs - or use chicken or turkey hot dogs
  • 12 oz dark Mexican Beer - or water
  • 1 cup black bean chili
  • 4 oz Mexican Cheese Blend
  • 4 hot dog buns - or bolillo rolls
  • 1 T fresh cilantro - roughly chopped
  • 1 cup Tortilla chips - crushed
  • 1 green onion - chopped, including green tops
  • 1 T sour cream
  • 1/4 cup jalapeño - thinly sliced


  • Pre-heat a grill to 400° to 435° F.
  • In a saucepan large enough to lay hot dogs flat, bring the wine or water to a gentle boil. Turn off heat. Once beer has stopped boiling add the hot dogs and cover. Let sit simmering for 3-4 minutes.
  • Place hot dogs on the 400° - 425° grill. Grill, turning frequently for even cooking, until well charred on the outside.
  • When the hot dogs are just about done lower heat and quickly grill each bun and set aside.
  • Add chili to the bun.
  • Top with grilled hot dogs.
  • Top with sour cream, cheese, crushed tortilla chips, and thinly sliced jalapeños.
