Wednesday, February 9, 2011 Review by judywrites

Hi everyone,

Here is a recipe from Crif Dogs in Manhattan. Crif Dogs is famous for their hot dogs and is a favorite of folks for a late-night snack. The hot dog is named the Chihuahua and is wrapped in bacon and topped with sour cream, salsa and avocado!


  1. 6 hot dogs
  2. 6 slices of bacon
  3. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  4. 6 hot dog buns, split and warmed
  5. 1 Hass avocado, cut into 12 slices
  6. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sour cream
  7. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons spicy salsa


  1. Pat the hot dogs and bacon dry with paper towels. Wrap each hot dog with a slice of bacon in a spiral; secure the bacon at each end with a toothpick.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil until shimmering. Add the hot dogs and cook over moderate heat, turning, until the bacon is crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer the hot dogs to paper towels to drain. Discard the toothpicks.
  3. Tuck the hot dogs in the buns. Top with the sliced avocado, sour cream and salsa and serve.

Thank you Food and Wine for another great food idea and recipe.

Take care,
