Nothing Says "I Love You" to "Hispanics" Like a Sonoran Hot Dog

Posted By on Mon, Apr 29, 2013 at 8:58 AM

According to a press release (which, by the way, is different than an actual story, cultivating sources or an actual submitted opinion column) from the Arizona Diamondbacks, they are now going to offer a Sonoran-style hot dog at home games for seven bucks. Woweee. Seriously, that just doesn't seem right, offering up bacon-wrapped goodness in Maricopa County.

You know, of course, there's nothing like a Sonoran hot dog to say, "Hey, all you, er, Mex, er, Hispanics, we love you, we welcome you and we want your dollars, so we've made special food and days, just for you."

Here's what they say:

PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) will offer a Sonoran-style hot dog at every home game for $7 at Red Hot Grill locations in sections 126 and 320. In addition, the team has partnered with Univision to offer a special Sonoran Dog Package, El Pa’quetellenes, for only $15 that includes an Outfield Reserve ticket, Sonoran-style hot dog, 24 ounce Pepsi and a coupon for a free cookie from SUBWAY® Restaurants. El Pa’quetellenes, presented by Univision, is available at every D-backs home game and can be purchased online at

The Sonoran Dog is a hot dog wrapped in mesquite-smoked bacon that is grilled, and then topped with pico de gallo, ranch-style beans and a mayo drizzle. The Sonoran Dog originated in Hermosillo, the capital of Sonora, Mexico, and is traditionally found in Phoenix, Tucson and Sonora.
