Santa Rosalia Style Hot Dogs
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 Recipe #318739 ! UPDATE: I've been making them on a griddle on the stove top and it works great.

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!!1Reply
This is absolutely fabulous!! My husband actually ate three of these hot dogs and that is very unusual. We typically eat pretty healthy, but every once and a while we will splurge. This recipe is so worth the splurge! I cooked the bacon wrapped hot dogs in a grill pan on my stovetop. The bacon crisped up perfectly and really put these hot dogs "over the top". The tomato, onion, jalapeno and cilantro mixture is a wonderful topping. I also put ketchup and mustard on mine. I just heated our hot dog buns in the microwave. One other note..I used nitrate-free bacon and hot dogs from Trader Joes because my daughter and I get migraines if we eat the regular type. This recipe is going into my best of the best file!
