Partially cook bacon; drain on paper towels. Cut a 1/4-in. lengthwise slit in each hot dog; place cheese in each slit. Starting at one end, wrap bacon in a spiral around hot dog; secure with toothpicks. Split buns just halfway.
Combine butter and mustard; spread inside buns. Set aside. On a covered grill over medium heat, cook hot dogs with cheese side down for 2 minutes. Turn and grill 3-4 minutes longer or until bacon is crisp and cheese is melted. Place buns on grill with cut side down; grill until lightly toasted. Remove toothpicks from the hot dogs; serve in buns with onion and chilies if desired.
Serves: 6 - 8
