This my friends, according to the June issue of Men's Health Magazine, is deemed the Sonoran. B is a fan of hot dogs and of grilling, and when he saw this in the June issue, we just had to try it out. We didn't alter the recipe much because I'm a fan of
stealing trying other people's recipes out. And if it's in Men's Health Magazine, it has to be healthy-ish, right?
But let's get one thing straight up front...don't judge! I'm not high-falutent by any means and I'm not a food blogger. I live in Texas for goodness sakes. Before that, I lived in po-dunk Georgia for 25 years (as in step over all of the dogs and spit off the front porch and you'd hit Alabama...po-dunk), and before that a farm in upstate New York. So I don't "plate" things (unless by "plate", you mean paper) which is why I don't write about food often. I cook often, as in every night, but I don't share it with you here. I'm told I'm an awesome cook, although I don't eat much so I wouldn't know. It's just not "pretty", but this was worth sharing! So on to the task at hand...The Sonoran....because they LOVED them!
Here's what you need:
- Weiners (they baked, we grilled...of course)
- Avocado Slices (they sliced, we chopped)
- Mayo (ewwww.....we substituted with mustard...no lard for us)
- Chopped Tomatoes
- Crispy Bacon (we cooked ours on the grill...of course)
- Chopped Onion
- Canned Pinto Beans (obviously we used low sodium here)
- Hot Dog Buns
That's it! It was easy, clean up was minimal (thanks to the grill and "plating"), and they loved this dish. Of course, I made some homemade slaw because you can't eat a dog without slaw, and it was an entire meal with all the fabulous 4 food groups represented!
More of my "plating". Paper plates and paper towels...that's how we roll!
The grilled dogs and bacon.
The healthy, fresh fixins'.
The finished product with slaw on the side!
We'll be adding this "delicacy" into the grilling mix from now on. It was a huge hit around here and I love finding new and interesting things for my family to enjoy.
So tell me, how do YOU like your dogs? I'd love to
steal use your recipe too! Oh come on...I always give credit where credit it due. So please, tell me how you rock the dogs so we can try them out too!
