Nothing says summer like baseball and hot dogs! Fix these ballpark-style taco dogs, and catch a game on TV. You’ll feel like you’re really in the stadium, eating your favorite baseball food — with a twist. Traditional taco toppings are a home run when you serve them over hot dogs too.

Serves 6

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes


For the hot dogs

  • 6 hot dogs
  • 1 (16 ounce) can pinto beans
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (more or less, to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 6 hot dog buns

For the toppings

  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon sauce (more or less, to taste) from a can of chipotle in adobo sauce
  • Diced cherry tomatoes
  • Diced black olives
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce
  • Shredded Mexican-style cheese


  1. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, milk and adobo sauce. Mix well. Taste, and adjust the seasonings as needed. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. To a saucepan over medium-low heat, add the beans. Add the chili powder, cumin and onion powder. Mix well.
  3. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Keep warm.
  4. Cook the hot dogs on a grill over medium heat according to package directions. Turn constantly to help the hot dogs develop grill marks. When cooked through, add them to the buns.
  5. Top with 3 heaping tablespoons or so of the beans, followed by the tomatoes, olives, lettuce and cheese.
  6. Drizzle with the sour cream, and serve immediately.
