Chihuahua Dogs (Hot Dog Tacos)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by NELady

This recipe is from Cooking With 4 Ingredients by Jean Coates, c. 2002. Simple, easy. I have copied the recipe as written - but when I made these I warmed the taco shells in the oven, boiled the hot dogs, and then put the whole thing together without the microwave. Do whatever is easiest for you.

A VERY GOOD RECIPE. I did leave out the tomato though. The kids and I really enjoyed this. A wonderful quick fixing recipe, that should be tried. Made for 1-2-3 hit Wonders.
