Episode Summary

Mexican hot dogs are the bomb. They're also known as Sonoran hot dogs and they're one of those mysterious fusion-foods that's been around at least 20 years, but could have been around much longer, and there's a million "right" ways to make 'em and none of them are wrong. If you've never heard of this business, you are in luck to hear of it finally! What it is, is a hotdog, wrapped in bacon, fried until it's crispy and then topped with bajillions of condiments, the most important and delicious of which are salsa verde and mayonnaise, IMHO. Refried beans, pico de gallo, pickled jalapenos, and grilled onions are also frequently piled atop. Sometimes you see them in a standard hot dog bun, but I prefer using a Mexican-style French bread called a bolillo. The first time I tried this, I used a thick-cut pepper bacon and while it was good, thinner bacon works better. You want it to get real crispy. And just use regular-sized dogs, not jumbo or bun-length because the bacon won't wrap those completely and you definitely want to make sure your dawg is tightly swaddled in pork fat. And I like to toast my rolls in the bacon grease (because I'm operating under the delusion that bacon fat is good for me?) even though many people say they must be steamed buns. There's two sides to every story, I suppose, but I'll always take the side that has its bread toasted in bacon fat, thankyewverymuch.moreless
