Combining 2 long time favorites- bacon and hotdogs. What's not to like? Though it may not be the most figure-friendly meal, it's a lot of fun to eat. Great dish for a group gathering-- build your own hotdog party!

1 hotdog
1 piece of bacon
1/2 small yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed and diced
1/4 cup refried beans
extra virgin olive oil
condiments of your choice

(These ingredients are for one dog. Multiply accordingly per extra dogs.)

-saute onions in 1 tsp. olive oil until they are transparent and slightly start to brown
-remove onions from pan and set aside
-wrap raw bacon around the length of a hotdog
-cook the dog in the same pan over medium heat, turning it frequently, until the bacon is cooked on all sides
-toast hot dog bun
-warm up refried beans until easy to spread
-spread beans on bun
-place dog on bun
-top with tomatoes, jalapenos, onions, and your choice of condiments

This recipe was inspired from brother Bobby and Man Vs. Food.

-use whatever type of hotdog you like: all beef, turkey, even tofu
-condiment suggestions: mayo, mustard, BBQ, ranch
-instead of using refried beans use whole pinto beans or even try refried black beans or whole black beans
-instead of fresh jalapeno, try a can of diced jalapenos or a spicy relish
