Hot dog toppings, our creative secret to ‘never-boring’ hot dogs at home. In general, we find them healthier than street vendor hot dog toppings. Hot dog toppings have been a popular tradition in many cities of Colombia. New York city street vendors also offer these with multiple topping options.
The base: Ketchup, mustard. The toppings: Sweet, salty or spicy combinations.
Salty combination: Crumbled Queso Fresco or Queso Cotija (crumbled feta or gorgonzola cheese work as well), diced onions, diced pickles and crushed potato chips.
Sweet combination (not featured in these pictures, but also delicious): The popular Hawaiian, which means pineapple chunks, ham and bacon bits, crumbled cheese and crushed potato chips.
Spicy combination: Anyone of the above with diced jalapeno. 🙂
