yields four servings

4 hot dogs with about 40 calories and 1g fat or less each
4 slices center-cut bacon
1 cup sliced onion
1 cup sliced red bell pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced into strips (not rings)
2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
4 light hot dog buns
4 teaspoons yellow mustard
Carefully break 4 toothpicks in half. Wrap each hot dog in a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick half at each end. Set aside.
Bring a large skillet or grill pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove.

Add onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper and cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Remove from the skillet/pan and set aside.

Remove the skillet/pan from heat, re-spray, and bring to medium heat. Add bacon-wrapped hot dogs and cook until bacon is crisp and fully cooked and hot dogs are heated through, about 6 minutes, rotating the hot dogs several times to evenly cook the bacon. Set aside.

Evenly spread mayo inside the buns. Remove toothpicks from the hot dogs and place a bacon-wrapped dog in each bun. Top each dog with a teaspoon of mustard.

Evenly distribute veggie mixture among the dogs.
