Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • .25 oz fresh cilantro
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 1 Hass avocados
  • 1 jalapeño chile peppers
  • 1 lemons
  • 1 red onions
  • 1 shallots
  • 3 tomatoes, each about 6 oz

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 8 all-beef hot dogs, each about 4 oz

Oil and Spices

  • .25 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • .25 tsp kosher salt


  • .5 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 jars sauerkraut (each 1 pound)


  • 8 hot dog buns



  • 1 ripe Hass avocado, roughly chopped
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ jalapeño chile pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallot
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or pushed through a press
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 8 best-quality all-beef hot dogs
  • 8 hot dog buns, split
  • 1 jar or bag (1 pound) sauerkraut, drained
  • 1 pound ripe tomatoes, cored, seeded, and chopped
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion


  1. In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine the mayo ingredients and puree until smooth.

  2. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  3. Cut a few shallow slashes in each hot dog, and then grill over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until hot all the way to the center, 4 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally. During the last 30 seconds to 1 minute of grilling time, toast the buns, cut side down, over direct heat.

  4. Generously spread the avocado mayo inside each bun (you will not need all of it). Then add a hot dog, sauerkraut, tomatoes, cilantro, and onion. Serve warm.

5 Star Hot Dog??

I wouldn't have given this recipe 5 stars simply because it's a hot dog. However, I've never eaten a hot dog like this. It tastes fantastic! It's a really simple recipe without a lot of ingredients. I made this when some friends were over and everyone loved them!

Best Hot Dog I ever had!

As I was reading the recipe my mouth started to water. Decided we were going to have hot dogs for dinner and try the recipe. I'm not a big hot dog fan, but I have to say that was the BEST hot dog recipe I EVER had. The Avocado May and cilantro made it. Also enjoyed having fresh (not canned/bottled) sauerkraut on the dog. Mahalo!
