What would summer be without this favorite — albeit this spicy version?
Southwest Chicago Style Hot Dog
1 steamed all-beef hot dog
1 steamed poppy seed bun
Fire-roasted onions and peppers (white onions and red and green peppers, chopped, sauteed)
Purchased spicy giardiniera (mixed pickled vegetables)
Fresh favorite salsa
Place the steamed hot dog in the steamed poppy seed bun. Top with roasted onions and peppers. Mix together the spicy giardiniera and salsa (about 2 parts salsa to 1 part giardiniera). Top the hot dog with the salsa mixture and tortilla strips.
To make the onions and pepper mixture: Chop white onions and red and green bell peppers. Place on a hot grill or in a skillet and drizzle with oil. Saute until caramelized and tender.
Yield: Serves 1.
