Sonoran Hot Dogs #OurFamilyTable

The Sonoran Hot Dog originated in Sonora, Mexico.  I first tried one when visiting our friends in Tucson, Arizona where they are very popular.

Hot dogs wrapped in bacon and grilled until crisp then placed onto a sweet that has been slathered with refried beans and topped with tomatoes, salsa verde, shredded cheese and spicy sauce.

The members of the From Our Dinner Table Group are sharing Hot Dog Recipes today.......

Traditionally you would use Bolillo rolls for these hot dogs.  I had never heard of Bolillo Rolls but when I went to the restaurant and tried one of these Sonoran Hot Dogs I thought the taste and texture was very similar to Hawaiian King Rolls so that is what I used for my version.

The restaurant that we went to had a huge bar filled with condiments surrounded by picnic tables where everyone sat together finding a seat where ever there was room.  The bar was filled with lettuce, cucumber slices, numerous types of peppers and pickles and condiments of all sorts. I kept my toppings much simpler, salsa verde, chopped cherry tomatoes, pickled jalapenos, shredded cheese and a sauce made of Miracle Whip or Mayo if you prefer, lime juice and zest, and hot sauce. 

These were a big hit with the Teen and her friends who were enjoying a fun day in the pool.  I think they would be a great addition to your next BBQ served up with a Margarita or Cervesa.  Cheers......

  1. Well, great minds do think alike! I do have a recipe for bolillos btw, but I love the idea of the Hawaiian rolls. Love the char on your dogs too.

    1. Thanks Karen and I will have to look up that recipe the next time I make these.

  2. I love the sound of these Mexican-inspired hot dogs! The toppings are killer. I see bolillo rolls in my grocery stores all the time, but I wonder if it's because I live in Texas!

    1. Perhaps Valentina. I had never even heard of them until I researched these dogs.

  3. I love that you added beans, and the sauces sound delicious!

  4. I went down the path of the Sonoran, but didn't get there. They look and sound delicious.
