Camping Hot Dog Taco

Combining two fast-food favorites, hot dogs and tacos, meet the camping and budget-friendly hot dog taco. It is almost embarrassingly good how amazing this tastes considering how simple the ingredients are used to make it. Everything is cooked on a basic barbecue grill.

The recipe is a great one for kids to help prepare and learn basic grill skills. The ingredients are familiar and the recipe is super simple to prepare. Let your kids help assemble the tacos or help grill them, with adult supervision.

The meal can be stepped up a little based on your ingredient selection. A higher-quality cheese mix can be used, and there are a wide range and qualities of hot dogs and guacamole. You can also add other fixings, like diced onions, salsa, or sliced black olives.
