Looking for something a little different?! This sonoran hot dog is delicious. Next time I’ll load up on more guac, fatter hot dogs and really just pile everything on there. Oh, and make a good pico de gallo, it brightened the whole entire dish up. So let’s break it down.
What is Pico de Gallo?
Pico de gallo, referred to as salsa fresco, is a type of salsa. It’s a fresh, uncooked mixture of chopped tomatoes and onions, cilantro, fresh chiles, lime juice, and salt.
While traditional salsa has a thinner consistency with more liquid, pico de gallo is chunky, with each chopped ingredient distinctly visible
I first had this hot dog at a little hot dog stand and I’ve been totally sold on it ever since. It’s like the best of everything all piled on top of a hot, juicy hot dog. Definitely not your ordinary dog and this big guy will certainly be a winner at any party you decide to throw. Plus, it’s super easy and your guests can technically choose to build it any ol’ way they want to. Clearly the Sonoran Dog way is the best, but feel free to change things up a little.
Ok, so a sonoran has a juicy hot dog, pinto beans, cheese sauce (or cheese but I’ve only had it with sauce so I had to copycat it), guacamole, bacon, pico de gallo and cilantro cream or sour cream. Yeah she’s loaded! I know, it’s craziness but it is so darn good!
