This Sonoran Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs is made by wrapping each hot dog with bacon, baking them, and topping each hot dog with roasted jalapeños and pico de gallo.


  • 8 hot dogs
  • 8 hot dog buns
  • 8 bacon strips
  • 4 jalapeños, stemmed, halved lengthwise and seeds removed
  • ½ avocado, diced
  • 1 cup pico de gallo
  • Optional: ketchup, mustard or mayonnaise


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Tightly wrap each hot dog with a strip of bacon until most of the hot dog is covered. Transfer hot dogs to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Please the jalapeños on the side of the baking sheet as well. Roast the hot dogs and jalapeños for about 25 minutes, until the jalapeños blister and the hot dogs are browned.  
  2. Toast the buns if you wish. Take the hot dogs and jalapeños out of the oven. There will be excess oil on there so be careful. With tongs, add each bacon covered hot dog onto each bun. Top with blistered jalapeños, pico de gallo and diced cucumbers. Add your desired condiment.


  • Choose the right hot dog: For the best flavor, use high-quality all-beef hot dogs or sausages.
  • Use traditional Mexican toppings: The classic toppings for a Mexican hot dog include diced tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, and cilantro. You can also add avocado, corn, or black beans for extra flavor.
  • Toast the bun: Toasting the bun gives it a nice crunch and prevents it from getting soggy. You can do this by grilling or toasting the bun on a skillet.
  • Don't forget the sauce: A good sauce can take your hot dog to the next level. Try making a homemade pico de gallo or drizzling some chipotle mayo on top.
  • Experiment with different cheeses: Cheese is an essential ingredient for a Mexican hot dog. Some popular choices include shredded cheddar, queso fresco, or cotija. You can also try melting some cheese on top of the hot dog before adding the toppings.
  • Consider adding a crunch: Adding some crunchy elements like crushed tortilla chips or fried onions can give your Mexican hot dog a satisfying texture.
  • Have fun with it: Mexican hot dogs are meant to be fun and flavorful, so don't be afraid to experiment with different toppings and flavor combinations.
