Hot Dog Pizza-Dillas

Hot Dog Pizza-Dillas are the perfect go-to meal for kids of all ages!

This is one for the kiddos. I’m sure you can tell by the name that this one is a Rachael Ray creation. She has a “for the kids” section in her magazine that has easy kid-friendly recipes. This is one of them.

Hot Dog Pizza-Dillas Recipe:

I had the ingredients on hand, so I haven’t had to shop Publix yet this week. The hot dogs and cheese are on sale though. This was quick and easy. If you could make two at a time, you could make it that much faster. I think the leftovers would be great for lunch the next day. You could totally eat it cold….like pizza!

Hot Dog Pizza-Dillas

Hot Dog Pizza-Dillas Ingredients:

4 beef hot dogs
4 10-inch flour tortillas
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce (or salsa)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

How To Make Hot Dog Pizza-Dillas:

1. Using a small knife cut the hot dogs in half lengthwise, then into 1/2-inch pieces.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil if you don’t have a non-stick pan, then add the hot doogs and cook until browned all over, 2-4 minutes. Drain the hog dog slices on paper towel-lined plates. Wipe out skillet.

3. Spray the skillet with Pam. Add 1 tortilla. Cook for 1 minute, then flip over with tongs and turn the heat to medium-low.

4. Place a big spoonful of spaghetti sauce (or salsa) on half of the tortilla. Spread it around with the back of a spoon.

5. Top the sauce with 1/4 of the cheese (a big handful of each kind).

6. Top the cheese with 1/4 of the hot dog slices. Fold over the tortilla to form a half-moon shape. Press down on the folded tortilla with a spatula to flatten the pizza-dilla and make it stick together.

7. Cook the pizza-dilla, flipping it carefully once more with a spatula, for 1 minute per side (I probably did mine more like 2-3 minutes per side to get it slightly crispy).

8. Cut into 4 wedges and serve. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

**I also think this would work on a panini press. Mine will fit two of these at a time so that will speed things up a little instead of having to cook them all separately.

Enjoy!
