But when I read about the Patagonian hot dog, I started hunting down ingredients immediately because I am inevitably attracted to weird recipes. I am excited to tell you that this one is a winner!
You will need:
Patagonia is the region at the bottom of South America (Chile and Argentina), and apparently, these toppings make up their standard hot dog. I did ask my aunt who lives in Ecuador if she had heard of them, and she hadn't, so maybe the Patagonian hot dogs are skipping over the rest of South America and enthralling the USA.
You will need:
avocado mayo (recipe below)
hot dog buns
Put all these toppings on a grilled hot dog and you may not even think of ketchup and mustard for hot dogs again. So good! I even bought a can of sauerkraut for these dogs since my homemade stuff is long gone and the fall cabbages are a ways off yet.
In a food processor, puree:
1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
1/3 c. mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. pickled jalapeno (or use fresh jalapeno and add some vinegar or lemon juice)
1 scallion, chopped
1 garlic clove
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
Notes: Feel free to adjust the spiciness level to your liking, although mine turned out spicy and it was so good that way (but too much for Phoebe, sadly). The avocado mayo will keep in the fridge for about a week. It's an excellent condiment for sandwiches or atop rice and beans or slathered on tomato slices.
Definite South American flavor going on here! Yum!
Note: Patagonia is typically defined as Chile and Argentina, which, I'm sure, is what you meant to type. :-)
e, thanks for the catch! I was blogging with kids again :/
Sounds good! I LOVE Chicago style dogs :)
My son lives in Santiago, Chile and man, do they love their hot dogs there. Look up completo in Wikipedia and see all the variations they have. Every kid's birthday party in Chile is not complete without a completos
The avocado mayo sounds very like my cheat guacamole. I know, but I was given the recipe years ago before I knew any better and it's really good...
I've never tried it with hotdogs, must add that to my to-do list.
It sounds lovely. (except for the kraut part, but then I'm not a kraut fan.)
