These hot dog quesadillas are not only a great way to use up any leftover hot dogs, but they are pretty darn tasty as well. Just cook your hot dogs the way you like them, grilled, pan fried, in the oven or in the air fryer. Hubby and I really prefer ours cooked in the air fryer. It really tastes the closest to grilling them in my opinion. If you haven’t tried them this way, check out my post on Air Fryer Hot Dogs. Any which way you decide to cook them, they will taste delicious smothered in cheese and wrapped in a warm tortilla.
Here’s what you need:
*Cooked hot dogs
*flour tortillas any size; I used the 8 inch size
*shredded cheese; I used a Monterrey Jack cheddar blend
*oil for the griddle or pan
Slice the hot dogs length wise then cut into pieces.
Place a flour tortilla on a flat surface and add a desired amount of shredded cheese to one side of the tortilla.
Add the sliced hot dogs over the cheese.
Then sprinkle on more cheese on top of the hot dogs. You can never have too much cheese in my opinion. Fold in half.
Heat a griddle or pan on medium heat. Brush the griddle or pan with a little oil. Place the quesadillas on the griddle.
Carefully flip them over and cook another 2 minutes.
If you are making several batches at a time, preheat the oven to 250° and place the quesadillas that are done in the oven to keep warm.
Transfer to a cutting board and cut in half.
Serve with sour cream, guacamole or salsa.
