The Sonoran dog is a classic grilled hot dog with bacon, but it’s so much more than that. The hot dog is wrapped in bacon and grilled, then placed inside a warm, chewy bun. The filling of the bun is also grilled to perfection. The Sonoran dog is served on a soft white or sweet doughy bun with an inside that’s slightly fluffy and chewy on the outside.

It’s a Mexican desert street food.

Street food is a big part of Mexican culture. Vendors sell food from carts or trucks with awnings, an easy way to serve customers in the summer heat. The Sonoran dog is one example of this type of street food.

When you try it for yourself, you’ll notice that it’s similar to other kinds of hot dogs: they’re usually served with onions and bacon on top, as well as mustard and ketchup. But there are some differences too! If you’ve ever been to Arizona before then maybe you’ve seen people eating these at sporting events or fairs. You can also find them at restaurants like Hot Dogs 4 U where they offer different toppings like beans and guacamole instead of just plain old ketchup (which sounds kind of weird but actually tastes pretty good).

The Sonoran dog was originally created by street vendors selling hot dogs out of coolers.

The Sonoran dog was originally created by street vendors selling hot dogs out of coolers. The snack became popular in the 1960s when factory workers in Hermosillo, Mexico would buy them on their way home from work.

The Sonoran dog typically consists of a steamed bun topped with an all-beef hot dog, pinto beans, onions, tomatoes, mayonnaise, and mustard. The toppings are often different depending on where you get them; some people like to add jalapeños and/or salsa roja (mild red sauce).

Nowadays this delicious treat can be found everywhere in Sonora and Tempe, Arizona!

A Sonoran dog is wrapped in bacon and grilled before it’s heaped high with toppings.

A Sonoran hot dog is a grilled hot dog in a bun, wrapped with bacon and then topped off with your choice of condiments. You can make it at home by wrapping the hot dog in bacon and then grilling or toasting it on the grill until cooked through. If you don’t have access to outdoor cooking equipment, you could bake the wrapped hot dogs in an oven for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 Celsius).

For toppings, try sauerkraut or coleslaw, onions and peppers and jalapenos are also great options!

What does it taste like? Imagine a hot dog (or two if you want to be traditional) wrapped in bacon and grilled on a very hot grill until the skin turns crispy brown. The meat should be juicy but not too soft or overcooked because then it would turn into a mess of rice and beans when you bite into it. The flavor of the tomato salsa will explode in your mouth but is not overpowering because there’s so much going on inside that you’ll probably enjoy this experience for quite some time before reaching for more food or drink. This is what makes eating these dogs special—they’re fun!

Part of the fun is piling on your own toppings.

The topping options are endless. You can pile on your own hot sauce or salsa, jalapenos, guacamole, or sour cream. Some people prefer to keep it traditional and stick with chopped tomatoes, onions, and maybe some mustard. You can even get a Sonoran dog with bacon if that’s what you’re into! It’s all about what you want in your dog and where your tastes lie.

The real fun is piling on the toppings of your choice before taking a bite out of this delicious treat!

The Sonoran dog is one of Arizona cuisine’s signature dishes.

The Sonoran dog is one of Arizona cuisine’s signature dishes. It originated in Hermosillo, Mexico, and was brought over to the United States by immigrants. This hot dog is traditional street food in Tucson, Phoenix, and other cities throughout the borderlands region of Arizona.

The key feature that sets this regional hot dog apart from other types is its toppings: pinto beans (a staple for many residents), grilled onions, shredded lettuce, and tomatoes with either mayonnaise or mustard—all wrapped up into a steamed bun. You can find these dogs at stands all around the area, but there are also restaurants that have created their own takes on them using local ingredients like prickly pear cactus salsa instead of ketchup or adding avocado slices to their versions. These variations make it possible to enjoy this dish year-round since everyone has different preferences when it comes to toppings!
