The Air Fryer
Not getting spattered with hot oil
Precise cooking times.
However, you do need to play around with cooking times and temperatures to get it all right. Not every Air Fryer is reliable and not all air fryer’s have the same capacity!
Truth to this recipe, my son is a hot dog fanatic and he loves Dorito’s, they are his 2 favorite ingredients. I thought, let me make him the best of both worlds and this is what I created. It is now a Casa Vento staple!
The best time to create this recipe is when you are at the bottom of a bag of those great chips. Crumbs are already made saving you time, so keep things easy! Just keep a pack of hot dogs in the freezer or fridge and away you go!
