  • Vegetable cooking spray

  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas

  • 1 15-ounce can chili (without beans)

  • 1 1/2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese, divided

  • 1/3 cup chopped onions

  • 8 hot dogs

  • 1 16-ounce jar thick salsa

Spray a rectangular baking dish with vegetable cooking spray.

To prevent tortillas from cracking during assembly, heat tortillas in microwave until soft.

Lay tortillas on flat surface and spread each tortilla with 1 heaping tablespoon chili. Next, sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon cheese and 1 heaping teaspoon onion. Place one hot dog in center of each tortilla.

Tightly roll up tortillas. Place, with seam side down, in the prepared baking dish. Spread salsa evenly over the tortillas, making sure all surfaces are covered. Sprinkle remaining cheese evenly atop mixture.

Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven until cheese is melted and mixture is bubbly, about 25 minutes.
