Hot Dog Cornbread Chip Cups

Cornbread Hot Dog Chip Bites

Every time I post my cornbread taco boats, people say 2 things – make them mini, and make them with a corn tortilla. Well here is both! It’s honestly hard to work with these scoop chips. In my mind I always think they are perfect little cups, but the reality is that only about 1 in 4 are good to fill. The rest are either broken or oddly shaped. Many are just flat! What’s going on over at the tortilla chip factory? ANNNNNyways, I made these and they were fun and tasted good.

I used cornbread mix for this cause we had some around. Feel free to use your favorite recipe, or the one from my cornbread taco boats. I tried to doctor this one up to make it taste like that one, by adding cheese, pickled jalapenos, mustard, and honey.

The chips are so small you only need a spoonful of the batter in each. You want to move fast once you start so the chips don’t get soggy.

Aftter they bake, add pickles and sauce. The sauce is basically spicy honey mustard.

Pretty tasty! Definitely a bit of work but I thought it was worth it in the end. These would be an awesome game day treat!
