    Chipotle Cheese Sauce
  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk until golden, about 1 minute. Whisk in the milk and continue to cook until slightly thickened about 5-6 minutes. In 1/4 cup increments, add the cheddar cheese to the milk. Make sure each batch is completely melted before adding the next. Once the entire cup of cheese has been added and melted, stir in the green chiles, tomatoes, chipotle pepper and hot sauce. Season with salt and black pepper if necessary. Keep warm on the stove while you prepare your other ingredients
  • Bacon-Corn Relish
  • In a large non-stick skillet, add the bacon. Cook over medium heat, until almost crispy. Add the red onion, corn, and a dash of salt and black pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes or veggies are tender and the bacon is completely crisp. Stir in the cilantro and adjust seasoning to taste. Set aside until you are ready to assemble your hot dogs.
  • Hot Dogs
  • Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium high heat. Add your hot dogs and grill for about 8 minutes, turning them every 2 minutes or so. Once you have the perfect grill marks and the hot dogs are warmed through, remove from heat.
  • Assemble your hot dogs by placing a grilled hot dog on top of a lightly toasted hot dog bun. Top with a drizzle of chipotle cheese sauce and bacon-corn relish. Enjoy immediately!
