Mexican Hot Dogs Recipe

Tomorrow is the Fourth of July and you can’t celebrate this holiday without firing up the grill with hot dogs to share with family and friends. I’ve teamed up with Johnsonville to bring you this Mexican Hot Dogs recipe; it won’t disappoint. I’ll be pairing it with a Mexican Corn Salad and this showstopper Jalapeno Popper Dip. Do you see the trend here?

Johnsonville Brats

Mexican Hot Dogs

For this recipe, you will need a package of your favorite Johnsonville Brats, but I highly recommend the Beddar with Cheddar or the Firecracker ones that are here for a limited time. You will also need pork chorizo, pico de gallo, cotija cheese and if you really want to spice things up a few slices of jalapeno. I almost left out the much needed buttered and toasted on grill hot dog buns.

Who loves to play cornhole? Me!

This year you can find me watching the American Cornhole League’s Pro Invitational event at Coney Island, sponsored by Johnsonville, which is airing on ESPN2 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET on July 4th. It’s a family-friendly event that will make watching it fun for the whole family.

  • 16 of the best Cornhole players in the country will square off for $20,000 in prize money.
  • If you live in the area, the event is free, open to the public and begins at 10 a.m. ET at Coney Island’s MCU Park (1904 Surf Ave, Brooklyn, NY)

To get you excited about the event check out the action in the video below.
