Ingredients

  • 8 natural casing hot dogs
  • 8 strips thick-cut bacon
  • 2 quarts peanut oil
  • 8 hot dog buns, toasted or steamed
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 3 to 4 pickled jalapeño peppers, diced

  2. 2.

    Combine avocado, onion, tomato, jalapeño, and lime juice in a medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and toss gently to combine.

  3. 3.
