This summertime recipe gives a different twist on the usual hot dog in a bun dish. The original recipe called for bell peppers and pineapple to achieve that sweeter taste. We went a different route and utilized jalapenos instead.


  • 1 package Beef Franks, 14 oz.
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, cored and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 4 jalapenos, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
  • cheddar cheese, for sprinkling


  1. Cut each beef frank crosswise into halves and set aside.
  2. Place the bacon in a single layer in the air fryer basket with perforated parchment paper (optional). Air fry at 400°F for 2 minutes. Once they are done cooking, cut each bacon slice crosswise into halves.
  3. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around 1 piece of beef frank. Alternately thread 1 bacon-wrapped frank with 1 piece of jalapeno and bell pepper onto each skewer. Brush each skewer with barbecue sauce.
  4. Place the hot dog kebabs on perforated parchment paper (optional) in the air fryer basket and air fry at 375°F for 10 minutes, checking on them halfway through. Once they are done cooking, brush them with extra barbecue sauce, sprinkle with cheese and enjoy!
