  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Wrap each hot dog with a slice of bacon, securing ends with toothpicks. Fry hot dogs 2 at a time in hot oil until they float to the surface, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Pour onions into a small pot over low heat. Stir until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  4. Arrange fried hot dogs in rolls. Garnish with onions and crushed corn chips.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you don't like onions, substitute a can of chili for the onions in the sauce.
  • Editor's Note:
  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

Wow! What a great new way to enjoy a hotdog! The sweetness of the pushcart onions and salty goodness of the thick cut apple wood smoked bacon i used REALLY made this dish! We LOVED it!!! Thanks!

I love onions but couldn't find the push cart onions in my area so I used the chili. These were great and one I'd do again!
