Green Chile Cheese Dog

First and foremost, I apologize for the gross looking pictures. I debating on posting any pictures at all and just telling you how to make this, but it seemed weird.  Just know that this is really, really, good. 

Seriously good.

My husband and I were going to the grocery store one Sunday afternoon and we saw a familiar and endearing sign beckoning "Roasted Hatch Green Chile." We had to stop and get some of the good stuff.

Both of us attended New Mexico State University and love green chile. A lot. We combed our persons and car for as much cash as we could find and threw it on the table underneath the roasting tent. The kind lady selling the chile told us she didn't quite have enough bags ready for that amount. She wondered if we would take a bushel instead.

Not thinking of our tiny freezer we rapidly agreed on the trade. Once we got home we were just thrilled with our small trash bag sized amount of roasted chile. We were planning on having hot dogs for dinner and they were quickly transformed into green chile cheese dogs.

Let me tell you, these are just wonderful. A delicious grilled hot dog with spicy cheese sauce and a special kick from the whole green chile. It's a fabulous kind of messy you won't be sorry about. 

4 all beef hot dogs
4 hot dog buns
1/2 cup queso cheese sauce, heated
2 whole green chiles

 Grill the hot dogs until the outside has a nice char on the outside. Toast the buns over a cooler spot on the grill as the hot dogs are finishing up.

Place the hot dogs inside the buns. Split the green chilies so each hot dog has a half of a chile on it. We used mediums that had the seeds taken out. Then distribute the cheese sauce among the hot dogs.
