Sonora Hot Dogs

Sonora Hot Dog

Found throughout Arizona, with the highest concentration near Tucson, this hot dog can be spotted in hundreds of food stands and restaurants alike. Not an indigenous food specifically to the city of Phoenix, but definitely a regionally-specific one found throughout the state. With food influences borrowed from Sonora State, Mexico, the Sonoran dog has almost no known rival for foods on a bun.

  • 10-pack of your favorite Hot Dogs
  • 10-pack of your favorite Buns (preferably small sub rolls)
  • 10 Bacon Slices
  • 1 Can Refried Beans
  • 1 Red Onion, chopped
  • 3 Tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 Jalapeno, chopped
  • ½ Bunch Cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Avocados
  • 2 Limes, juiced
  • 1 C Sour Cream
  • ¼ tsp Salt

Whisk together the sour cream, salt and juice of one lime in a medium bowl, and set in fridge. Combine vegetables, cilantro and juice of one lime in a large bowl, and mix well to combine. Pour contents of refried beans into a small saucepan and simmer on medium-low heat (don’t be afraid to add shredded cheese). Brush and grease an outdoor grill and preheat to medium setting. Wrap each hot dog with bacon and grill until bacon is crispy and dogs are heated through, and be mindful that the fat dripping off the bacon will surely draw up some flames. Peel and slice avocados and divide between hotdog buns. Spoon refried beans into buns, add hot dogs and top with vegetable mix.  Drizzle sour cream on top and serve.
