Scale

Ingredients

  • 5 hot dogs (Be sure to watch the carb count on the ones you choose)
  • 10 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 5 tbsp Monterey Jack shredded cheese
  • 1 large jalapeno pepper finely chopped
  • wooden skewers

Instructions

  1. Boil, grill or saute your hot dogs for several minutes to heat them well and cook them through.
  2. Place each hot dog on a wooden skewer once cooled a bit.
  3. Place a non-stick or well greased skillet over medium heat, and lay two slices of cheddar cheese down in the center of it.
  4. Let the cheddar cheese melt completely until it begins to resemble a piece of lace. If you do not let the cheese melt completely before attempting to wrap it around the hot dog, it will simply slide right off.
  5. Once the cheddar cheese is mostly melted, place a tablespoon of monterey jack cheese and a small sprinkling of jalapeno peppers down the center of it. Allow the cheese to bubble and melt for about 30 seconds longer.
  6. Beginning at one end, place the hot dog on the edge of the cheese, and use a spatula with one hand to help wrap the cheese around the hot dog as you spin it on the skewer with the other hand. Hold for a few seconds to let it cool slightly, and then place it on a rack to finish cooling.
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 with the remaining hot dogs.
