Guacamole Hot Sauce Dog

Guacamole Hot Sauce Dog = Best. Hot Dog. Ever.

I am a hot dog and pizza traditionalist. I like ketchup and mustard on my dogs and pepperoni on my pizza. I definitely branch out and try new things and usually end up liking them...but I always go back for the good, boring stuff.

So I made my guac hot dog for avocado month with a side of ketchup and mustard hot dog just to be safe. After devouring the guac dog, my ketchup and mustard dog was a big let down. And that's a first.

I'm not really sure what else to write -- you just have to try it this summer. Host a hot dog topping throw down and bring out this big gun recipe to blow the competition away. If you like guacamole and hot sauce, I promise you won't be sorry...

Guacamole Hot Sauce Dog 
Adapted from Real Simple recipe


4 hot dogs
1 avocado, peeled and pitted
1 tablespoon
fresh lime juice
kosher salt and black pepper
4 hot dog buns, split
4 small romaine lettuce leaves (I used red lettuce)
1/4 small red onion, chopped
hot sauce (such as Tabasco), for drizzling (We ran out of our beloved Crystal hot sauce so I topped it with Frank's Wing Sauce and it was awesome!)


Cook the hot dogs according to the package directions.
In a medium bowl, mash the avocado with the lime juice; season with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Dividing evenly, top hot dog bun with the lettuce, mashed avocado, then add hot dog and sprinkle with onion. Drizzle with the hot sauce.

Note: You have to add enough guac and hot sauce that it comes gushing out of your hot dog with every bite -- it's the only way...

  1. I'm sold! And I love the idea of lining your buns with lettuce, I've never done that before.

  2. ummmm honestly that looks ridiculously amazing. I need this at the next cook-out!

  3. This looks delish - ironically the late night food spot for Traverse city is a hot dog stand. I just had one with crushed fritos on top - I think this addition would take this dog to the next level.

  4. Missy, look at you with two posts! Looks pretty good, though, I am like you and a bit of a traditionalist. To be honest, I don't know if a hotdog is special enough for an avocado. Just sayin'!

  5. Add Cream cheese is unusually good as well!
