Hot dogs fried inside a corn tortilla

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Intensity: Easy


  • 4 hot dogs
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • Vegetable oil (for frying)
  • Mustard, ketchup, relish, or other desired toppings


  1. Prepare Hot Dogs:
    • Heat a skillet or grill pan over medium heat. Grill or cook the hot dogs until they are fully cooked and have nice grill marks. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Prepare Corn Tortillas:
    • In the same skillet or a separate one, add enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Heat the oil over medium-high heat until it shimmers.
  3. Fry Corn Tortillas:
    • Carefully add a corn tortilla to the hot oil. Use tongs to press the center of the tortilla down into the oil, creating a well for the hot dog. Fry the tortilla for about 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  4. Assemble Hot Dogs:
    • Once the tortillas are crispy, remove them from the oil and place them on paper towels to drain excess oil. Place a cooked hot dog in the center of each fried tortilla.
  5. Add Toppings:
    • Add your desired toppings to the hot dogs. This could include mustard, ketchup, relish, onions, cheese, jalapenos, or any other condiments or ingredients you prefer.
  6. Serve:
    • Roll up the corn tortillas around the hot dogs, securing them with toothpicks if needed. Serve immediately while hot and crispy.

Optional Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve with a side of coleslaw, potato chips, or a simple salad for a complete meal.
  • Pair with dipping sauces like spicy mayo, salsa, or guacamole for extra flavor.

Note: These hot dogs fried inside corn tortillas are a fun twist on a classic dish. They are crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and can be customized with your favorite toppings. Enjoy them for a quick and tasty meal or snack!
