Chicago Hot Dog Potato Chip Nachos
How do you make your summer holidays memorable? It’s easy to think of Thanksgiving or Christmas as pull-out-all-the-stops occasions, but summer seems to imply a more laid back approach.
What if I told you that you could have a laid back, yet totally awesome approach to summer entertaining? You can. I’ve devised a wild new recipe just for that purpose.
It all starts with Oscar Mayer hot dogs from Walmart. With no artificial preservatives, no nitrates, no fillers, these hot dogs are the crowd-pleasers you’ll want on your table.
If you haven’t heard of a Chicago style hot dog (you may have been living under a rock, for all I know), here’s the scoop. A Chicago style hot dog is a hot dog topped with yellow mustard, neon green relish, chopped onion, a pickle spear, sport peppers, and a dash of celery salt.
For the love of hot dogs, you’re going to want to get your Walmart grocery list started.
To add a unique twist that takes the Chicago hot dog from individual meal to platter-filling appetizer, we’re going to deconstruct it, toss the bun, and pile the ingredients high on a heap of crunchy potato chips. Behold, the Chicago Hot Dog Potato Chip Nachos!
(Hold for applause.)
