10 corn tortillas (5- or 6- inches in diameter)
10 hot dogs
1 can (15 to 16 ounces) chili
2 cups salsa
1 cup shredded Cheddar or Monterey jack Cheese (4 ounces)

Heat oven to 350 F. Grease rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches.
Soften tortillas as directed on package.
Place 1 hot dog and 2 tablespoons chili on each tortilla.
Roll up tortillas; place seam side down in baking dish.
Spoon salsa over tortillas.
Cover and bake 20 minutes. Sprinkle with Cheese.
Bake uncovered about 5 minutes longer or until Cheese is melted.

I pushed this recipe towards the end of the week because even though I chose it, I was having second thoughts. When I'm being smart, I remember to look up a recipe online before copying it out of the cookbook so I can cut and paste instead and when I did a search on this recipe, it came up quite a bit so that gave me some confidence.

I don't know what I was afraid of because I love chili dogs and I love salsa and I love corn tortillas and I love cheese. This was great. Yes, it's a bit heavy but I used lite hot dogs and 2% cheddar and we just had a salad with it so really, it wasn't that heavy.

Blast From The Past: A&W Coney Island Chili Dog Sauce from March 2006. That's my favorite chili recipe (for hot dogs) but I used Bush's chili for this.
