Playing How To Make Nacho Dogs | #StayHome With Rachael

A quick and easy spicy cheese sauce and other toppings seal the deal on Rach's delicious nacho dogs, which are a great game day or Memorial Day option! 

For the ultimate menu for either occasion, serve the nacho dogs with Rach's Chicago Dogs, Big Smack Burgers With Special Sauce, Swiss Cheese Burgers With Horseradish-Ranch Sauce, Skillet Barbecue Beans AND John's Boozy Coffee Egg Cream Cocktail.


For the Nacho Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 Fresno chili, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 round tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ cup pepper Jack cheese, shredded
  • ¾ cup yellow sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
For the Relish:
  • About ¼ cup diced tomato
  • About 3 tablespoons chopped pickles (Rach used sweet & spicy cornichons)
  • About 3 tablespoons chopped vidalia onions
For the Hot Dogs:
  • Butter
  • Top-split buns
  • Beef, pork or plant-based hot dogs
  • Yellow mustard, for topping
  • Sliced pickled jalapeño peppers, for topping


Serves: 5 to 8


For the nacho sauce, in a small skillet, melt butter, then stir in chilies and garlic and cook out for 1 minute. Add flour, stir, whisk in milk and thicken up a bit, then stir in cheeses to melt. Reduce heat to low, or cover and remove from heat, then reheat on low to serve.

For the relish, mix ingredients together.

Toast lightly-buttered top-split buns on hot griddle or in a skillet. 

Heat hot dogs in skillet with ⅛ inch of water. Bring water to boil, and when dogs are hot, transfer to hot griddle or grill and crisp casings.

To assemble nacho dogs: Toasted bun, dog, mustard, nacho sauce, relish, and pickled jalapeño slices.
