Hot Dogs With Poblanos, Pepper Jack And Tomatillo

There is a type of sweet poetic justice finding a gourmet hot dog recipe in the January issue of
Bon Appetit. 

I'm so used to seeing health conscious meals in the beginning of the year. While most are glued to the healthy fish & chicken recipes, I'm eyeing the recipe on how to make a hot dog - already a delicious treat - even more delicious. This is awesome. The melted Pepper jack cheese with caramelized onions and poblanos were out of this world. 

If you want to take a break from the healthy meals this January, this is the recipe I would start with.

Hot Dogs with Poblanos, Pepper Jack and Tomatillo
2 tbsp olive oil
3 Poblano Chilis cut into 1/2 inch wide strips
1 large onion sliced
6 uncured hot dogs or flavored sausages
1 cup purchased salsa verde (tomatillo salsa)
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
6 hot dog buns
2 ounces hot pepper Monterey Jack cheese, thinly sliced
Crumbled Cotija cheese or feta cheese

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add poblanos and onion; sprinkle with salt. Saute until chiles soften 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer mixture to bowl. Add hot dogs to same pan. Add 1 cup water; cover.  Boil until heated through, 5 minutes. 

Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Combine salsa verde and cilantro in small bowl.

Place 1 hot dog in each bun; place on baking sheet. Cover each with slices of cheese. Broil until cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Top with chile-onion mixture; then Cotija cheese and salsa.


  1. I could just dig in...amazing photos! So alive and delicious!

  2. Yes, please! I believe there is no such thing as a bad hot dog, but this version looks incredible!

  3. Ill take two. These look amazing. My bf doesnt eat hot dogs so when I get one it is a special treat!

  4. this is a thing of beauty! I love it, no I am thinking a great idea for a party is hotdogs plus fancier fixings.

  5. A great idea! Have a hot dog bar with gourmet toppings. The superbowl would be a great time to try this out.

  6. You know, if it is made with good fresh ingredients, then it doesn't matter every once in a while if it is not healthy. A little bit of a treat does wonders for your mood!

  7. I've made two other of Bon Appetit's hot dog recipes from a few seasons ago and they were fantastic. This one looks just as tasty! Can't wait to try it.

  8. Well I am used to making hot dogs a lot...In this tasty looking recipe I find a bit difference, a slight change regarding the spices and the taste...It really came out very much tasty indeed when I made it...!!!

  9. very tasty and good looking food i found in this post.
    Really appreciate that big time! Keep up the good work on the blog!

  10. Thesis writing involves several processes which makes the entirety of the experience both exciting and challenging. From choosing a researchable topic that has not been done by other students and eventually narrowing it down to become a uniquely original work to soliciting the help of a research supervisor and in embarking on data collection and writing the paper, these are some of the tasks that almost all undergraduate and graduate students working on a thesis consider as stressful. In spite of the many challenges that students have to put up with, undeniably, the thesis project is an important project-based and challenge-based educational experience that helps in building character and in preparing students for their chosen career. One particular skill that is indispensable and which perhaps is unknowingly cultivated among students as they work on a thesis is the ability to work with a group of superiors.
