The Quest for the Sonoran Hot Dog

NPR recently wrote about Sonoran hot dogs, a variation on my favorite food that I'd never heard of before. They've been around since the '60s as a Tex-Mex combination, a bacon-wrapped hot dog atop refried beans in a soft steamed bun, topped with tomatoes, onions, jalapeno sauces, mayo and mustard. Recent variations include the Tex Mex staples of sour cream, guacamole and chile sauces; radishes, cucumber and mushrooms.

So this is where the bacon-wrapped hot dog, that I first tried at NYC's Crif Dogs (full review) first came to be. It's amazing, the great foods that are made at the borders. Unfortunately I don't know of any in the NYC area, but I asked on Chowhound. A place on Washington St. in Bergenfield has bacon-wrapped dogs, one step closer to perfection! Let the quest begin!

I think I'll pass on the bacon wrapped hot dogs but I do want to watch the Chaplin movie even though it is long and drawn out.
