These hot dogs take a New Mexican turn – topped with a green chile cheese sauce and lots of diced green chiles.

I think I will always be a New Mexico girl at heart. I did, after all, spend the first 18 years of my life there. And even though I’ve been gone for quite some time now, and even though I consider Utah my home, New Mexico will always be the place I think of when I think of my childhood.

And one thing that will always remind me of my childhood – green chiles.

As a New Mexican, I think it’s an unwritten rule that you must adore green chiles. I remember seeing the large chile roasters in different store parking lots, where the smell of roasting chiles was intoxicating. And while the Hatch chiles are the most popular, I’m pretty sure you can get a pretty mean green chile in most parts of New Mexico. Don’t be surprised to find these chiles on the menu in most restaurants. (Goodness, how I want a green chile burger from Blake’s Lotaburger right about now!)

So I decided to give a wink and a nod to my home state with today’s hot dog for Hot Dog Week. Sure, they might not be actual New Mexico chiles, but this hot dog was so good that I don’t even care. Just think about it – a hot dog topped with a cheesy green chile sauce, then add some more green chiles to the top. And to be honest, I didn’t want to look crazy for the photos, but I ate mine with a lot more green chiles than I put on the hot dogs for the photos. I kinda like green chiles…

And next time I get nostalgic for my childhood, all I have to do is whip up one of these dogs to remind me of days past!

    Hot dog week is literally my favorite week of the year. Even better than red velvet week and that’s saying something!

    This one looks amazing!

  5. I will have to control myself around these if I make them. Cheese sauce and chilli? I am fearful of how many I could eat!

  6. karyn h says:

    I will be making these for dinner tonight, with veggie dogs!

  7. This is a hot dog that I would be crazy about. All that cheese and those green chiles…delicious!

  8. My husband would pass out (in a good way) if he came home and I told him we were having these for dinner! I may just have to make these sometime this week…

    The spice on these sounds AWESOME. I’m always about upping the heat, all the time.

  18. Bekah says:

    This looks yummy! Can you tell me what else, if anything, you would put this sauce on? And are canned green chiles okay, or do you roast them from scratch? Thanks.

    • Deborah says:

      Bekah – it’s a great cheese sauce, so I think it would go great over pasta for a macaroni and cheese. And I used canned green chiles, although you could probably use either canned or fresh.

  19. Samantha says:

    Delicious! I opted out the sour cream and shredded cheese and used cream cheese…BOMB! This would be great over chicken or even cheese enchiladas! Thank you!!
