Take a break from Taco Tuesday with this gourmet Mexican dog.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 large tomato , finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Guacamole

  • 2 ripe avocados , peeled and pits removed
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup crumbled tortilla chips

Instructions

  • Salsa: Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high. Add corn to dry pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 4 to 5 min. Combine corn with tomato, cilantro,  lime juice and salt in a medium bowl.
  • Guacamole: Mash avocados with lime juice, cilantro and salt in another medium bowl.
  • Top hot dogs with guacamole and salsa. Sprinkle with crumbled chips, if desired.
  • Recipe makes enough toppings for 8 hot dogs. We recommend barbecuing hot dogs for 5 to 10 min. (depending on size), until grill marks form and hot dogs are cooked through. Lightly toast buns on the grill, if desired. Serve hot.
