What You’ll Need

12 extra large jalapeños
8 slices American cheese
4 thin hot dogs, halved lengthwise
4 hot dog buns
Mustard, for serving

How to Make It

  1. Heat grill to high. Slice tops off jalapeños, then cut off bottoms where it starts to narrow. Using a paring knife, dig out the seeds and ribs of each pepper to form a hollow tube.
  2. Break cheese into rectangles the same width as hot dogs. Place a few pieces on a halved hot dog, then place the other half of the dog on top to re-form the hot dog with cheese in the center.
  3. Stuff hot dogs into jalapeño tubes. (Depending on how big the jalapeños are, you should be able to put 2 or 3 around each hot dog.)
  4. Grill, charring jalapeños on all sides and warming the dogs, but remove from heat before too much cheese spills out. Serve on hot dog buns with mustard.
