Hot Dog Tacos

8 hot dogs
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. dry taco seasoning mix
8 taco shells, slightly warmed
1 c. shredded iceberg lettuce
1 c. chopped tomato
1 c. (4 oz.) shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Make lengthwise slit almost through (but not completely through) in hot dogs. In small bowl combine taco seasoning mix and oil. Spread mixture evenly into slits in hot dogs. Grill cut side up for five – seven minutes, then place each hot dog inside warmed taco shell. Top with lettuce, tomatoes and cheese and serve immediately. If you have a warming rack on your grill heat taco shells on it for just a few minutes. Or just place them on the outside edge of grill cooking area when heat isn’t too hot. Serves eight.
