READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by College Girl

A roasted garlic and red pepper relish replaces the usual pickle in this Spanish take on hot dogs. from Bon Appetit. AMAZING! These are super if you would like to do a grown up spin on hot dogs. Manchego is a Spanish cheese made from sheep's ml; available at some supermarkets and at specialty food stores.

Scrumptious! I used chorizo sausage to go Spanish all the way. Way to go!
