As many of you know, football is BIG business around here. Keith is a former college football player, and I’m raising three equally enthusiastic little fans. When playoff season and the Big Game roll around, we’re definitely ready to celebrate!

Sometimes our parties include friends, and other years we just throw a few blankets on the floor of the living room and enjoy the sport with our immediate family. We don’t need a crowd in order to celebrate — especially when there’s plenty of good food involved!

My boys love nothing more than snacking in front of the TV, so I’m always on the lookout for easy, quick-prep options that everyone can enjoy.

When I saw these Jalapeño Pretzel Dogs, I knew that they would be the perfect solution for any game day gathering. Best of all, you only need a few basic ingredients — and you can find them all at Kroger!

Can we discuss these French’s®️ Crispy Jalapeños for a second?

They are perfectly spicy, crunchy and made with real jalapeños. The jalapeños are so good on top of salads, nachos, chili, and even casseroles, adding a kick to all of your favorite meals!

Dips For Your Pretzel Dogs

Don’t forget to serve dipping sauces on the side, too! These are hotdogs, after all…

We love French’s Ketchup because it’s non-GMO, it has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, and it doesn’t contain any high-fructose corn syrup or gluten.

The French’s Classic Yellow Mustard is “America’s Best Loved Mustard” because it’s made with #1 grade mustard seeds and includes no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. It’s a condiment that we can feel good about feeding our family.

Tips For Making These Pretzel Dogs;

  • Try spreading the pretzel dough with mustard or ketchup before rolling up
  • You could also try adding grated cheddar to them before rolling for cheesy pretzel dogs
  • I used ketchup and mustard but when it comes to dips the list is endless…knock yourself out!

    Just when I thought pretzel dogs couldn’t get any more delicious. These look SO stinking good- drooling already!

    1. Blair says:

      I know, right?! The jalapenos kicked it up a notch! 🙂

  2. MaryAlice Grinder says:

    Looks like what I will make for the Super Bowl Party! Thanks!

    1. Blair says:

      Awesome! Enjoy, MaryAlice! They’re perfectly SPICY! 🙂

  3. Grammyprepper says:

    WOW! These sound great! I am definitely looking for the jalapenos! Do you really need to boil the hot dogs though? won’t the bake time cook them enough?

    1. Blair says:

      The recipe comes from the French’s website, which suggests boiling the hotdogs first. That said, I have also tried the recipe by just warming the hotdogs in the microwave for a few seconds instead, and that worked well (and was easier and faster). It would probably be fine to not heat them at all first, but I have not actually done that myself. 🙂

  4. Kristy from Southern In Law says:

    Holy yum! These look INCREDIBLE! What an awesome idea!

    1. Blair says:

      So, so good!!!

  5. Pamela says:

    Why the baking soda wash on the hot dogs?

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Pamela! It causes a chemical reaction that results in darker pretzels on the outside with a shorter cooking time (which keeps the dough inside soft). 🙂 Baking science!

    1. Blair says:

      I know, right?! Such a treat! 🙂

    This is a wonderful full of taste recipe. It was hard to find the jalapeño onions, so I used crispy onions instead. These worked out just fine and I topped exterior off with dill pickle seasoning. One of the tastiest hot dogs ever!

      Thank you, Jacqueline!
