One Jalava Sweet HOT dog! (with Pineapple Jalapeno Relish)

It was my husband's turn to cook dinner this weekend and in an homage to summer during a cold and blustery winter, he decided to put together the most fabulous hot dogs!  

And not just any old dogs either - because these ones were blanketed in melty cheese and smothered with a sweet hot and tangy pineapple jalapeno relish.
