Hot Dog Tacos

Ever heard of, or must less tried a hot dog taco? I know what your first thought is going to be. Let me tell you right now, you’re dead wrong. The planned post for today was going to be air fried, frozen, cheap, and easy. But when an idea hits, you’ve got to follow through…for science. Honestly, it took me a few minutes to build up the confidence to take a bite instead of deconstructing these tacos and putting them in a bun (where I thought they belonged). To my own personal shock, hot dog tacos are really, REALLY good! I highly encourage anyone who is an adventurous eater to give hot dog tacos just one bite….they’re legitimate.

All air fryers cook at different speeds.  These recipes are meant to be a general guide.  Cooking times depend on various factors including thickness, cut, and type of meat used.  I use an Instant Pot Vortex Plus shelf air fryer.  If you’re using something different, especially a bucket type air fryer, I advise keeping an eye on food so it doesn’t under, or overcook.
