Well, burger month is officially over.

I’d be really sad about it if I didn’t have something else up my sleeve…

We are deep in the dog days of summer, so it’s only appropriate to deem July as Hot Dog Month!


Every Friday in July I’ll share one of my favorite “Dog Days” Recipes, starting with today’s latin-inspired hot dog recipe.

We all associate foods with memories and feelings. For the longest time, hot dogs triggered an extremely negative emotional response in me. I couldn’t connect them with baseball and summer fun, like most people. Instead they reminded me of a time in my childhood when my parents went through intense fiancial hardship and we seemed to live on dogs, casseroles, and tuna salad.

To this day I avoid casseroles and tuna salad. Not because of the way they taste, but because of the unpleasant memories they conjure up.

However hot dogs are a different story. A few years ago I had the opportunity to visit Puka Dog, a tropical hot dog shop in Hawaii, and magically all my negative hot dog associations faded away.

Each bite of polish sausage smothered in fruity concoctions opened my eyes to what a hot dog could be, if treated with proper respect. Nowadays I love loading hot dogs with all sorts of toppings, and can finally enjoy them as a summertime treat!

Today’s Green Chile Mole Hot Dog Recipe packs a punch of deep spicy Mexican flavors.

The combination of the rich dark mole, with chile peppers and bitter chocolate, the light perky green chile made with zippy tomatillos, and the salty creamy bite of Queso Fresco offers a explosion of complex flavors in each mouthful. These are grownups hot dogs, although my kids enjoyed eating them just as much as we did.

A hot dog recipe is usually something we make for a quick meal, yet a good mole recipe takes hours to prepare and requires dozens of ingredients.  Therefore I’ve created what I call a “cheaters” mole recipe that can be made with a fraction of the usual ingredients in 20 minutes or less. If you have a good latin market near you, they may sell pre-made mole that is pretty good as well.

This hot dog recipe is a great way to kick off the Dog Days of summer. I can’t wait to share next week’s Dog Days recipe!
