Zweigle’s Cheesy Jalapeño Hot Dog

Zweigle’s Cheesy Jalapeño Hot Dog

Things may not be heating up in New York quite yet (we’re looking at you, spring snowfall), but they’re certainly heating up in the kitchen this week at Zweigle’s.

Today, we’re cooking up a delicious and cheesy hot dog with a just bit of bite. We’re all about putting a spin on our classic and beloved Pop Opens, and this simple recipe does just that.
