Salt and black pepper, to taste
4 ounces cream cheese, cut into chunks
1/2 cup sharp yellow cheddar cheese
1/4 cup hot sauce

Nonstick cooking spray
Set a waffle iron to medium-high heat.
In a medium bowl, make cornbread mix according to package directions. Stir in fresno, salt, black pepper, cream cheese, cheddar and hot sauce. Set aside.
Cut each hot dog in half. Fit a skewer into the dog to make a hot dog on a stick. Spray waffle maker with cooking spray.
Place the all the hot dogs on the waffle iron, two dogs per waffle square, with the skewers sticking out of the waffle iron. Let the hot dogs grill for just a few minutes until warm. Evenly pour the cornbread batter over the hot dogs. Close the waffle maker and cook 4 minutes.
