  • Hebrew National All Beef Jumbo Hot Dogs, split lengthwise to lay flat
  • 8 oz. Mexican Chorizo, casings removed
  • Hot Dog Buns
  • Topping Ideas
  • Sour Cream
  • JalapeƱos
  • Pickled Onions
  • Avocado
  • Diced Tomato
  • Salsa
  • Diced Onion
  • Cilantro
  • Black Olives
  • Pepper Jack, Cheddar or Cotija Cheese



Brown the Mexican chorizo over medium heat. When it's just about finished, scoot the chorizo to one side of the pan and lay the split hot dogs in the pan to brown them a little and warm them through. Flip the hot dogs over at least once to give the round sides some color.


Lay one cooked split hot dog on each hot dog bun.


Spoon the cooked chorizo on top of the hot dog and then get creative with the toppings!


To scale this recipe up, figure 2-oz. Chorizo per dog. Transfer the cooked chorizo out of the pan to cook more than two dogs at a time. Or use two separate pans.
