Sonoran Hot Dog | It’s Summer and that means hot dogs!  There are many variations of hot dogs but….. my favorite by far is the Sornoran Hot Dog. Which happens to be named after the desert and since the hot dog was created in Tucson  and……I live in Tucson.  I thought serving this hot dog was the perfect way to celebrate summer!

There are many toppings you can put on this hot dog:  raw onions, grilled onions, avocado, cabbage, radishes, chilies, ketchup and mayonnaise just to name a few.  For the best bread you’ll want to use Mexican Bolillos Buns.  I found mine in the bakery section of my grocery store.  They are crusty oval rolls.  If you can’t find them a hot dog bun works too!

When you order a Sonoran hot dog from a food truck here in Tucson you will probably receive a smoked chili on the side.   As you can tell this hot dog has original toppings.  This makes for a VERY tasty dog!

  2. Hi there- found you through the 36th Ave;s hop and am a new follower. OMG you make me miss my hometown soooo much! We used to eat at EL Guero Canelo almost every week. His restaurants in Tucson are so famous it was on Man Vs. Food on the the Food Channel. Are you from Tucson?! The first blogger I’ve found from there! They were some good stuff. I hope you have time to follow my life now that we have moved to South Africa by http://withoutcomplexities.blogspot.com

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Oh my goodness…these dogs look wonderful! So bad, but so good! I’m in Chandler and I’ve heard about the Sonoran dogs in Tucson, but have never tried them. Now that I know what the toppings are, I’m giving them a try.

  7. I grew up in Tucson! I miss it! My parents still live there and told me about these before it was featured on the TV show. My husband has been to Tucson on business a few times since they’ve started making these and has had them and loves them. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Hi Sheryl, Thanks for sharing this Hot Dog recipe along with your Featured Berry Cheesecake recipe last week on Fresh Food Friday! I cannot wait to read your two posts that you kindly shared today! You are one amazing cook!!!!!
