More About This Recipe
Hot dog. In the middle of these muffins. I ain't even lying.

You know those gosh-darned toy machines in restaurants where there's like a CLAW, and you put in 10 hundred million dollars and the claw like, half way wakes up, and then jankily wavers over the toys and then BARELY TOUCHES any toy, then recoils back to its evil, sleepy corner in the big glass cage?

I always wanted to bash those things in.

But now, I don't have to. Know why? Because there's a dang hot dog in the middle of every single one of these mini muffins. Guaranteed. Every time. No stupid claw. No let down. It's there. Unless you forget to put one in there, which you won't.


Okay grab some Betty Crocker muffin mix, some awl, water, an egg, some mini hawt dawgs, and some Old El Paso green chiles. And you can grab the sriracha sauce now too if you want. We'll use it later.

Dump the mix, water, oil, egg and chiles into big ole bowl!

Whisk whisk whisk. Look at that nice green tint. OH, if you want, double up on the chiles for a more intense flavor. It's totally up to you. And your claw.

Then slice the leetle dogs in half. Another option right here: If you want to actually SEE the dogs sticking out of the muffins once they're baked, just slice off one tip of the dog, so that they stand up straight in the muffin.

Now pour the muffin batter into a mini muffin tin, about 3/4th full. And then just stick the dogs down in the middle of each cup! See how they're sticking out right now? Once it all bakes, they disappear, like the claw. But in a good way. Never mind.

Baked! Oh my goodness gracious sakes alive I can't even sit up.

Surprise! Now dip these mothers in some hot sriracha sauce and see stars, baby.

This punches that toy machine in the FACE.
