Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 4 turkey hot dogs
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped white onion
  • 4 güero chiles or banana peppers
  • 4 hot dog buns
  • 1 cup cooked pinto beans warmed up

Toppings:

  • Chopped raw white onion
  • Chopped tomato
  • Jalapeño hot sauce or salsa of your choice
  • Mustard
  • Mayonnaise

To Prepare

  • On a cutting board, roll one slice of bacon around each hot dog. Place the tip of the hot dog over one end of the bacon slice, then roll the hot dog around and around on the diagonal so that the bacon wraps around it and covers it entirely. If you get to the end of the hot dog and there is still some bacon left, roll back in the other direction until the whole strip of bacon is rolled around the hot dog.






  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon-wrapped hot dogs and cook, turning every 2 to 3 minutes, until crisped and browned on all sides. Remove from the skillet and set aside.



  • In the same skillet, heat the vegetable oil and add the 1 cup chopped white onion. Sauté the onion until it softens and becomes translucent, about 5 minutes. Scrape into a small bowl and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, char the güero chiles on a hot comal or skillet set over medium heat for 3
    to 6 minutes. Turn it once or twice, until its skin has lightly charred. Remove from heat.

To assemble:

  • Place one bacon-wrapped hot dog in a bun, then spoon on a generous tablespoon of warm pinto beans and about a tablespoon of the cooked onion. Top with some chopped raw onion, chopped tomato, hot sauce or salsa, mustard, and mayonnaise. Repeat with the remaining hot dogs and serve each one with a charred güero chile on the side.

    What kind of hot dog Buns did they use in Sonora? Looked like a specialty brioche.
    Thanks

      Those buns are made in the store Rosie, but you are right, a brioche would work great 😉

    Was watching ur tv show about Hermosillo, u featured hotdogs at a stand operated by a gentleman nicknamed Miami. The hotdogs were stuffed w cheese & wrapped in a roasted Anaheim chili & bacon. What kind of cheese was used to stuff the hotdogs?

      Hi Michael, the cheese they use at the Miami dogs is a Mexican Manchego, very similar to a Monterrey Jack 😉

    I’ve had so many of these hot dogs at the original Guero Canelos in Tucson. Every trip to Tucson for years. It’s a must! I have one question though do they really use turkey hot dogs? They are delicious

    1. Pati Jinich

      Jan 22

      Yes! I hope you enjoy making them at home, Carmen.

    I can’t wait to try these….I’m wondering about the bun…probably using a regular bun will fall apart…maybe putting a small hoagie bun & crisping it in the oven would hold up better with all those toppings! If it’s too much bread could get those large hotdogs or use 2!!! Oh it looks yum, Pati!!!

      A hoagie bun sounds great…enjoy, Pamela!

    Can’t wait to see the Tucson episode! So much fun to see the El Guero Canelo Sonoran dog as the featured recipe! Since we split time between Tucson and San Carlos, Sonora, we have the best of both “hot dog” worlds! This dish has become a sort of regional religion, with strong loyalties to everyone’s favorite “Hotdogero!” Thanks, Pati, for showing off Tucson!

      Oh I hope you love the episode, Charlie.
