These flaming hot cheetos dogs are a fun, indulgent spin on a grilled hot dog! Cotija cheese and crushed flaming hot cheetos take these to the next level – especially if you’re looking for a crazy treat over memorial day weekend or for summer cookout. 

Just in time for the unofficial start of summer, I present to you: the most trashed up, delicious hot dog of life.

flaming hot cheetos hot dogs

I’ve wanted to make a flaming hot cheetos hot dog for a year now. I just didn’t know what route to go. When I google it, what comes up are versions of flaming hot cheetos corn dogs. Which frankly sound incredible at nearly nine months pregnant but also sound like way too much work. Especially as we head into no-cook season with high temperatures and cooling foods.

I’m no stranger to a trashed up hot dog – remember the hot dog bar I shared a few years ago?! There are some wild and wacky flavors in there that we experimented with. And ultimately found the best ones we loved!

Except we didn’t do a flaming hot cheetos dog. And last year, I figured that 2020 was such a trainwreck that WHY NOT make flaming hot cheetos street corn (I first had it on a book tour for The Pretty Dish) and go with it.

So I did. And even though I’m not a huge flaming hot cheetos person, I suddenly became a huge flaming hot cheetos grilled corn person.

Seriously, it is SO good. While I would not be someone to snack on flaming hot cheetos alone, something happens when they are crumbled up and added to your favorite food. I mean, something other than turning your entire mouth bright red and doing who knows what to your insides.

But STILL!

It’s worth it for a fun little indulgent treat.

These hot dogs went through a few rounds of testing because I couldn’t figure out how to nail the flaming hot cheetos in the perfect way. After trying to reinvent the wheel over and over, I realized that basing them off the grilled corn may actually be perfect.

And it turns out it is. (more…)

Every month, Melina Hammer, Food52's very own Hudson Valley correspondent, is serving up all the bounty that upstate New York has to offer.


When we moved to our cottage upstate a few years ago, one of the first people we met was our mail carrier, Barton Brooks. Being the outgoing type, we introduced ourselves, and have looked forward to his cheery face peeking out from the mail van ever since. Turns out, not only has Barton run the local mail route for 40 years, but he’s at the helm of a picture-book-perfect, 50-plus-acre farm just 10 minutes from our home. There, he and his wife, Rebecca, raise Wagyu cows on rolling pastures. We have sipped drinks together on their wraparound porch, taking in hummingbirds and deer in the uninterrupted sunset, plus any last antics the calves may have to share for the night.

If you preordered a copy of Everyday Dinners and got the bonus cookbook, this is one of the recipes in there! I couldn’t WAIT to share it because it’s just fantastic. While the other ten recipes will remain exclusive to the bonus, this is one that I thought I’d share as we head into the warmer months.

It’s been such a giant hit!

P.S. you can still get the free bonus cookbook if you order a copy of Everyday Dinners!

There is just something about deconstructed cheeseburgers that I love. I don’t know what it is. I actually like deconstructed versions MORE than burgers. Maybe because they tend to use ground beef over a thick patty? I find them easier and more enjoyable to eat. 

Plus, these are really darn easy. Especially for a larger family or crowd.
