Hot Dog Tortilla Wraps


Makes 8

Now, I am not a big hotdog lover nor do I think giving them regularly to your kids is a healthy choice. But sometimes, you got to let loose and let them enjoy a good hotdog. This recipe was created by Rachael Ray (I gave it a tweak to make it kosher), it adds a great zing to the old fashioned classic. Plus it gets a healthy dose of beans into their diet.

8 good-quality hot dogs
1 can (16 oz.) vegetarian (lard-free) refried beans
1 cup roasted red pepper, sliced (optional)
16 flour tortillas (8-inch), heated to soften slightly
1-1/2 cups homemade or store-bought salsa
Yellow mustard, or honey mustard
Cooking spray

Preheat an outdoor grill, indoor griddle or grill pan to medium-high heat. Parboil the hot dogs for a few minutes to heat through. In a medium saucepan, heat the beans over medium heat (or cover and heat in the microwave on high for 3 minutes), adding a little water to thin slightly.

Top each of 4 tortillas with a thin layer of salsa, a swirl of mustard, and a few slices of roasted pepper, then cover each with another tortilla. Spread the top tortilla with some beans and set a dog at one end. Wrap and roll up the tortilla stack around the dog; repeat with the remaining ingredients. Spray the tortilla wraps with cooking spray and grill for a few minutes to brown and crisp the tortillas.
