Sonoran Hot Dogs

Sonoran Hot Dogs are a summer fave!

My mom has been raving about Sonoran Hot Dogs for over a year now, ever since she read a blurb about them in Sunset magazine last summer and served them at a family reunion I couldn’t attend. I finally got to enjoy them this past week when my family spent time at the beach in North Carolina, and they definitely lived up to the hype!  I’m a big fan of traditional hot dogs with ketchup and mustard, and was skeptical that a hot dog so far removed from that would be tasty, but the new flavor combinations were incredible. They are a new summer favorite!

Sonoran Hot Dogs are a delicious summer fave!

  • bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • guacamole
  • mayonnaise
  • sauteed onions and peppers
  • canned pinto beans, drained, rinsed, and warmed
  • cotija cheese
  1. Put a hot dog in each bun, and top with remaining ingredients. Simple and delicious!
More often than not, we just use really soft hot dogs buns for our Sonoran Hot Dogs.
