When you can’t decide between nachos and hot dogs, Ball Park Fully Loaded Nacho Cheese Frank comes to the rescue. From summer barbecues to weeknight dinners, the whole family will want to try this food mashup. The only question remaining is – what do you put on top of this hot dog?

For many people, certain food choices are always associated with summer or sporting events. A recent survey showed that hot dogs are the “most loved foods at stadiums and arenas.” The next most popular foods are nachos and popcorn.

While some stadiums, food trucks and other food providers have offered a nacho dog, it usually involves toppings on the hot dog itself. Although that idea can be a tasty bite, it can be quite messy. What about putting the nacho flavor inside the hot dog itself?

my Margolin, senior associate brand manager, Ball Park brand, said “We’re excited to bring together two iconic summer flavors in one mouthwatering bite with our Fully Loaded Nacho Cheese Franks. Our brand is all about helping people celebrate the summer with bold flavors whether fans are at home watching a game or are grilling outdoors.”

How should you serve the Ball Park Fully Loaded Nacho Cheese Frank?

Ball Park describes the hot dog as “savory franks are made with real cheddar cheese and a unique seasoning blend with jalapeno, onion, garlic, paprika and lime.” This flavor combination is unique for a hot dog. While cheese and spices are expected, the addition of lime adds nuance. Sometimes a little acidic brightness can balance all the other flavors.

Although condiments can be a big hot dog debate, this flavor might be nice with some brown or spicy mustard. That flavor would play well with the other flavors. Also, even ketchup would work.

A more creative topping might be a pico de gallo or a salsa. Given the nacho flavor, this typical food pairing would be nice.

It might be better to avoid the neon relish on this hot dog. The sweetness might be a little confusing with the other flavors.

The Ball Park Fully Loaded Nacho Cheese Frank is available where Ball Park products are sold. Prices may vary depending on the retailer.
