Fast food in Mexico is not the drive-thru, but small walk up shops, carts, and huts where you can purchase a quick, yummy, and inexpensive meal. These establishments will prepare a meal right in front of you. You can sit or stand while you eat and determine your level of hunger so that you can order another before you finished the last. Talk about fresh! The Mexican Hot Dog is very popular and found mostly sold by cart vendors. At my last neighborhood block party I prepared enough to share. It was a great hit!!! So, get rid of your Ketchup, Mustard, and relish and try this amazing twist. One more thing I should add, you can grill these in your BBQ or in your frying pan but just don’t add any oil as your bacon will do the trick. For this recipe, we will use the outdoor grill and enjoy the warm summer outdoors.
Dust each roll with flour and roll each roll into a 5 x 2- inch bun. You can do that by hand by just rolling the roll into a 5 in long tube and then pulling the dough out so that it spreads to about 2 inches.
Place each on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and cover with sprayed plastic wrap.
Now, let the dough rise until it doubles in size.
Remove the wrap and bake at 350ºF for 15 to 20 Minutes. I baked them for 15 minutes and they looked like this.
While your oven is pre-heating, dice your Tomatoes, Onions, and Cilantro.
Combine your Tomato, Onion, Cilantro, Salt, Garlic Powder, and Pepper. Mix them together and set it aside.
While your buns are baking, take your Bacon strips and wrap them around your wieners.
Now, get your grill going nice and hot.
While your grill is warming up, go ahead and take your buns and with a small sharp knife, slit each bun so that you have space for your wiener.
Add Mayo to your liking.
Now grill your hot dogs. My handsome nephew Martin Corona worked the grill for me.
Now put it all together…. Add the cooked wiener with bacon to your bun with Mayo. Add the fresh salsa mixture over the top….. AND……
Enjoy your Mexican Hot Dog…. Seriously, you will not believe how good it is.
My Handsome nephew Martin Corona graded this dish a 9 out of 10. He was amazed at what a difference freshly made buns could make. We agreed that you can really taste the quality of the Rhodes dough in every yummy bite.
