Introduction: Sonoran Hot Dog
As you cycle around Tucson, you will come to pass hundreds of Mexican restaurants, taco stands, and hot dog carts serving a Sonoran Hot Dog. Thing is, every one of them is different and they all claim to be the best. After many samples, and some foul heartburn, I started to make my own out of the food stuffs I use.
These are WAY easy to make and it would be great at a party letting everyone make their own at a "condiment bar". It took about a hour to make these dogs.
Step 1: Ingredients
hot dogs, bacon, bolillo bread, can of pinto beans, can of jalapeno/carrots, onion, avocado, lime juice, tomatoes, mayo, and tooth picks
Step 2: Prep'n the Dogs
A slice of bacon rapped around a hot dog held by a tooth pick at each end. Easy stuff!
Step 3: Prep'n the Condiments
Rinse and drain the canned goods, dice the onion and tomato, half your limes, slice up you avocado, and cut out a chunk of the bolillo bread for all the goods to rest in.
Step 4: Get'em on the Grill
For the most part you are only cooking the bacon. I cook on low heat with the lid open. I also recommend taking a water bottle and poke some holes in the top. Use it if the fire flashes up on you. I use thick sliced bacon, it seems to cook better.
Step 5: Slap'em Together
I wipe on some mayo, sprinkle in some beans, add lime, the dog, stuff in the jalapeno, carrots, and avocado on the sides, put on some tomatoes, finish off with onion, and serve up...... Can I get an easy button over here?
