Santa Rosalia is a small Mexican mining town located on the coast of the Sea of Cortez (Baja Side). Their claim to fame is a church built by Gustave Eiffel and their hot dogs! At dusk every night, a street cart parks across from the church and sets up for business. Their hot dogs are wrapped in bacon and served on a slightly sweet bun, with a 'sea' of condiments to choose from. They are, by far, the best hot dogs I've ever eaten! NOTE: So far I've not been successful in replicating their buns, but this recipe is still wonderful with a high quality store bought buns (such as Sara Lee Soft and Smooth Buns) or Hamburger or Hot Dog Buns ! UPDATE: I've been making them on a griddle on the stove top and it works great.

This was a new and exciting way to top a plain old hot dog!! The whole family loved it and told me they couldn't wait for me to make these again!! Loved the bite of the cilantro. I also use some cheez whiz on top.... Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 5
Fabulously different toppings for a hotdog. Not your usual kraut, chili, or onions....I topped with pico de gallo, and was so pleasantly surprised with the great taste of cilantro on a hot dog! Since DS asks for this almost every weekend, there is now a way to make the ordinary extraordinary. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT5.
I have had a Mexican Dog once before and it was great. Made this today with the pico de gallo and it was awesome!! I cooked these in a cast iron skillet on the grill for even heat distribution. They had a nice smoky flavor. Mixed some lime juice and garlic in with the tomatoes, onions and cilantro. Love the story that goes with this recipe. Thanks for posting!!
