What a neat recipe! The only thing I did differently was to cook the weiners on the bbq, rather than fry them. I typically do weiners wrapped up in Pillsbury Crescent Rolls when I want to do something different with them, but I decided to try this for lunch today in honour of the Zaar Mexicana Cook-A-Thon and I'm glad I did. They're easy, tasty, and my family woofed them down; my teenage son even asked that I do them again :-) Thanks for sharing!

DH & I loved them! I used Nathans "Bigger-Than-The-Bun" Franks, Mission medium soft flour tortillas, 4-cheese Mexican blend, and added sauteed chopped onions. I didn't fry the tortillas - just sprayed both sides with butter-flavor cooking spray, put the franks in them, then onions, then cheese. I rolled them up and stuck a toothpick in each to secure, sprinkled with a tad more cheese, then baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. I removed the toothpicks, garnished with salsa and served with sides of beans and slaw. Thanks Lori for a delicious, easy recipe.

What a unique quick dinner! I had some leftover pinto beans and two tamales that we had with these. I was thinking of lots of variations lol! Next time I will crumble some cooked bacon inside the tortilla too! Thank you for a fun dinner on a boring Monday evening.
