The first time I had this was in Pennsylvania and they called it a Texas Tommy, healthy no, yummy yes.
My daughter just came back from Tucson on a vacation where she raved about these hot dogs! I surfed the web and came across this recipe, so glad I did.
I made a couple of changes and the result was fantastic. Used pinto beans and placed them in the bun first, made guacamole, BBQ the dogs and steamed the buns 1 minute prior to serving! I went by what my daughter had been served in Tucson, we were not disappointed with these minor changes. A wetter dog that's for sure
I increased the mayonnaise & placed it in a squirt bottle so everyone could drizzle it over the dogs, did the same with the salsa verde. Impressive, my dinner was a hit! No left overs & two guests went to U of A ... what was I thinking they ate these on a regular basis. Let's just say these Sonoran Dogs we the talk of the evening.
Served Margaritas, three fruit salsa and a southwest caesar with polenta croutons!
My son and I just had these for dinner. We both loved them, but we thought the mayonnaise sauce was thin. Are the measurements correct: 4 teaspoons mayonnaise and a whole lemon? Perhaps 1/2 a lemon or more mayonnaise would have made a less runny sauce. I did use bottled salsa verde, but it was still excellent. We definitely intend to have them again.
I had these hot dogs the last time I was in Tucson this summer and they are AMAZING. When I got home I tried to recreate them, and they were OK, but not as amazing. I think it was probably the wrong hot dog and a couple missing ingredients in the cream mixture.
Also, if I can recommend something to people making this, I roast my tomatillos in a 400 degree oven until they start to break down, and then put all of that in the blender with the other ingredients to make the salsa. I think the roasting makes the salsa SO much more flavorful
Saw a TV show where I first heard about Sonoran Hot Dogs. Saw this recipe tried it, and was so happy I did. The flavor is amazing and undescribable you just have to savor it for yourself to understand my enjoyment of this recipe.
