San Diego Dog

A cool green salsa made from tomatillos cuts the richness of this Sonoran-inspired bacon-wrapped dog.

Ingredients

Hot Dogs

Salsa Verde

Instructions

Hot Dogs

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the peppers and onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown and softened, 8–10 minutes. Remove from heat. 
  2. Wrap 1 slice of bacon around each hot dog, using wooden picks to help it stick, if needed. Grill the bacon-wrapped hot dogs until the bacon is crisp. 
  3. To serve, remove any wooden picks from the hot dogs and arrange the hot dogs in the toasted buns. Top hot dogs with the peppers and onions and a spoonful of salsa verde.

Salsa Verde

This fresh salsa is wonderful with tortilla chips, over tacos and on your morning eggs.

  2. Quarter the tomatillos and put in a blender or food processor, along with the onions, cilantro, jalapeño and salt.
