  • 6 hot dogs
  • 3 cheddar cheese sticks, halved lengthwise
  • 1-1/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 1 cup crushed nacho-flavored tortilla chips, divided
  • Optional: Guacamole, sour cream and additional salsa


  1. Cut a slit down the length of each hot dog without cutting through; insert a halved cheese stick into the slit. Set aside.
  2. Preheat air fryer to 350°. In a large bowl, stir together flour, yogurt, salsa, chili powder, jalapenos and 1/4 cup crushed tortilla chips to form a soft dough. Place dough on a lightly floured surface; divide into 6 pieces. Roll 1 piece of dough into a 15-in.-long strip and wrap it in a spiral around a cheese-stuffed hot dog. Repeat with remaining dough and hot dogs. Spray wrapped hot dogs with cooking spray and gently roll in remaining crushed chips. Spray air fryer basket with cooking spray, and place hot dogs in basket without touching, leaving room to expand.
  3. In batches, cook until dough is slightly browned and cheese starts to melt, 8-10 minutes. If desired, serve with guacamole, sour cream and additional salsa.
