WTH? Did Man v. Food Get Dog History Wrong?

Posted By on Fri, Apr 9, 2010 at 1:59 PM

I never got a chance to watch the Man v. Food episode with El Guero Canelo's Sonoran hot dog, but I found this clip from the show, which tells a story of the good 'ol American dog that made a long journey to Sonora after World War II, only to return more embellished and smothered with jalapeño sauce.

Does that mean that before World War II, there were no Mexican Americans living on this side of the Sonoran Desert who put jalapeños, a lot of poblano sauce and other good stuff on those wonderful American hot dogs (and hamburgers)?

Haven't most people been eating a version of a Sonoran hot dog long before so-described treacherous trip to Mexico and return to the U.S.?
