Mexican Style Hot Dogs
I’m taking classic beef hot dogs and making them Mexican style. Hot dogs are always delicious, but it’s the toppings that really make them better and you can pretty much top any hot dog with any toppings you like. Today I’m going Mexican themed. An easy meal that your whole family will love. With fresh flavors of salsa, cilantro and an avocado cream/crema.
With all the Mexican flavors of pinto beans, salsa, cilantro and avocado cream, the combination of flavors work so well with the meaty hot dogs and the rainbow of colors make the hot dog even more inviting.
Having recently lived in Arizona for a while, I became very familiar with the Sonoran hot dog which comes wrapped in bacon. This is my take on this and feel free to explore this option as well.
Other Southwestern influenced recipes I have made are Sonoran Beef Tacos (< click text for link) served with New Mexico Hatch Green Chile Sauce.
The avocado crema (cream) adds a creamy element. Avocado, fresh lime juice and zest and hot sauce for a little (or a lot) of kick. You can adjust the spice level to your taste.
I love grilling the franks and getting good grill marks. Grilling the buns are also important to bring out a lovely crispiness to the bun. You can also heat the dogs according to the package directions.

Glad I found your site
I’m glad you found it too. Let me know if you have any questions.
This recipe was great with a bison hot dog. An easy and fast meal with chips and everyone was happy!!
I’ve never had bison. I’m happy to know the flavors work 🙂
What a great recipe and photo Janette! Pinned and shared!
What a delicious way to top hot dogs this summer! Perfect for any summer gathering.
Finally a hot dog I can feed my kid without feeling guilty. Because let’s face it, hot dogs are one of the 2 food groups he’ll eat (the other being M&Ms). Love your Mexican twist on the classic summer meal! #WhatAGrillWants <– surprisingly clever hashtag!
These hot dogs are very creative. I like the Mexican flavor to them. I have never used an avocado chipotle crema. I imagine that it will taste great on almost any thing. It looks perfect on this hot dog.
Thank you Rini, yes, the crema would be great on so many things.
