America's Wildest Wiener

Posted By on Mon, May 31, 2010 at 4:30 PM

Parade magazine calls the Sonoran hot dog "America's wildest wiener" in this article about the country's top hot dogs:

America’s wildest wiener is the Sonoran hot dog, sold by street-corner vendors throughout Tucson. A bacon-wrapped all-beef frank, hoisted hot from the griddle, gets loaded into a soft bun from a Mexican bakery and is outfitted with chopped tomatoes, a scattering of pinto beans, onions, a line of mustard, an artistic squiggle of mayonnaise, and a ribbon of hot sauce. On the side comes a roasted guero pepper, customarily wrapped in its own tight skin of cooked bacon and sometimes stuffed with cheese. For refreshment, drink a tall glass of the cool, sweet rice drink called horchata.
