Let's get Cooking...

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil. Butter the tops of the hot dog buns with room temperature butter.

  4. Turn the broiler on, broil the tops of the hot dogs for 2-3 minutes until the buns are lightly toasted.
  5. Remove from oven and top with chopped onion, crushed chips, sour cream, cilantro, scallion, and jalapeño. Serve family style!
