Recently, a blog reader, Jacque Gilbert, sent in a recipe for a Beanie Weenie Casserole. Until I saw her recipe I had no idea that that was what people meant by beanie weenies. Beenie Weenies are one of my favorite camping meals. In fact, it’s one of my favorite summer time meals period!
- Flour tortillas
- 1 package hotdogs (we only eat Nathan’s hotdogs, but any type is fine)
- 1 can refried beans
- Green taco sauce
- Shredded cheese
In a tea kettle boil water. While that is going, open the package of hotdogs (full size, not the little snack size ones) and put in a small pot. When the water is boiling pour over the hotdogs. Cover the pot and set aside.
This keeps the hotdogs from getting tough!
Heat the beans in a small sauce pan. Set aside.
Warm the tortillas by toasting over the stove burner. Be careful not to catch them on fire! I do this by laying the tortilla over the flame and then flipping it with my fingers to do the other side. Of course, I learned how to do this by watching my grandmother warm tortillas.
If you’re not comfortable with this, or if your stove won’t let you do this, then warm the tortilla in the bottom of a clean, dry frying pan.
On the tortilla, put down a thick layer of the refried beans, then a hotdog (the hotdog should be warm by now), a line of green taco sauce (or any type of salsa) and some shredded cheese. Wrap the tortilla around the hotdog like a burrito and enjoy!
