Easy Mexican Mummy Hot Dogs for Halloween











Make your Halloween party unforgettable with these adorable Mexican Mummy Hot Dogs! Wrapped in tortilla 'bandages' and browned to perfection, these tasty treats combine the beloved flavors of Mexican cuisine with a festive twist. Each serving has just the right balance of crunch and succulence, making them perfect for guests of all ages.


Step 1: Prep the Tortillas

Begin your adventure by laying out a tortilla on a flat surface. Spread a thin layer of refried beans over one side, covering it entirely. This step not only flavors the 'bandages' but also helps them stick to the hot dogs for that perfect mummy effect. Get ready to slice and dice those tortillas into thin strips with your trusty pizza cutter, a crucial preparation step that promises fun and a touch of creativity as you envision wrapping your mummy dogs.
Pro Tip: Ensure the beans are spread evenly for consistent flavor and sticking power.

Step 2: Wrap the Hot Dogs

Now, the fun part—wrapping your hot dogs! Pick up a bean-spread tortilla strip and gently press it onto a hot dog, beany side down. Carefully wind the strip around the hot dog, simulating mummy bandages. Don't stress about it getting a little messy; after browning, those imperfections won't even be noticeable. The key is to have fun and make each mummy dog unique. Plus, if a bandage comes loose, just dab a bit of refried beans on it as 'glue' to secure it back in place.
Pro Tip: Don't wrap the tortilla strips too tightly; allowing a bit of room ensures even cooking.

Step 3: Brown the Mummy Dogs

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Once melted, transfer your mummy dogs into the skillet. Brown them on all sides until crisp, showcasing your culinary prowess as you gently turn them to achieve that perfect golden hue. This step not only brings a delightful crunch to your mummy dogs but also melds the flavors beautifully, creating a Halloween treat that's as delicious as it is spooky.
Pro Tip: Medium heat ensures even browning without burning the delicate tortilla bandages.

Step 4: Serve and Enjoy

The final touch: carefully insert wooden skewers into one end of each mummy dog, making them easy to hold and adding an extra element of fun. Serve your deliciously spooky Mexican Mummy Hot Dogs with generous sides of salsa and warm nacho cheese dip, inviting your guests to dive in and experience the flavors of Mexico wrapped in Halloween fun. These mummy dogs are not only a joy to make but will be the highlight of your Halloween party. Enjoy the smiles they bring!
Pro Tip: Offer a variety of dips to cater to different taste preferences among your guests.
