Hot dogs and potatoes - Salchipapas - with Refajo (Colombian Dish and Drink)

Picture of Hot dogs and potatoes - Salchipapas - with Refajo (Colombian Dish and Drink)

This is a typical dish from Latin America and here in my country (Colombia), is found in almost every corner. Especially for movie nights, sit and watch sports with friends or just to eat at any time! And with a large glass of Refajo is perfect for those hot days.

There are many ways to do it, some more elaborate than others, but here you'll see how I like to prepare myself.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients


  • Hot dogs.
  • Potatoes (Standard, those of French fries; There is another type, yellow potatoes -Papa Criolla-, which are delicious for this particular dish).
  • Double cream cheese (or cheddar).
  • Ham.
  • Chicken or Pork Sausages (Chorizo).

Sauce/ Condiment

  • Tomato.
  • Onion.
  • Lemon.
  • Coriander leafs.
  • Vegetable oil.
  • Salt and pepper (to taste).

Drink - Refajo -

  • Your preferred Beer (Taste better with bitter beer)
  • Kola Soda (Also know as Kola Champagne Soda). If you can get "Colombiana" or "Kola Roman"... Nice!
  • Lemon
  • Salt
  • Ice


What kind of soda are you using? What's the flavor?

Soda kola, also known as Kola Champagne Soda is a drink popular in Latin America, so if there's a grocery store or supermarket that sell imported goods, they may have it. "Colombiana" is just a very popular brand of Kola Soda from Colombia and is being imported to USA, so it wouldn't be difficult to get it. The flavor... Maybe like cream soda mixed with Moxie? Sorry, it's hard to describe xD

Kola is very much like cream sodas... used to get Colombiana and other kola champagnes in NYC all the time... this might be good with Inca Kola as well.
