  • 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
  • 1 tablespoon juice from 1 lime
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 small bag potato chips, crushed
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves


  1. Wrap each hot dog with bacon in a spiral pattern, securing ends of bacon with toothpicks. In a deep fryer, wok, or Dutch oven, heat peanut oil to 350°F. Add hot dogs and cook until bacon is crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

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

  3. Top hot dogs with mayonnaise, avocado mixture, crushed chips, and cilantro. Serve immediately.
