Tabañero Extra Hot Americana Hot Dog


Prep: 1 hour ∙ Cook: 20 min ∙ Makes: 8 Hot Dogs ∙ Difficulty: Medium


  • 1 Lb. of Thick Cut Bacon
  • 1/3 Cup of Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup of Pecans
  • 1/2 Cup of Confit
  • 1 Cup Canola Oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. White Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup of Tabañero Extra Hot Sauce
  • Caramelized Onions
  • 1 Red Onion (Julienned)
  • 2 Tbsp. Canola Oil
  • 1 Cucumber (Seeded & Diced)
  • 4 Plum Tomatoes (Seeded & Diced)
  • 1 Package of All-Beef Hot Dogs
  • 1 Large Package of Whole Wheat Hot Dog Buns


Bacon Praline*

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a half sheet pan with aluminum foil. Arrange the bacon in a single layer on a cooling rack and set it in the prepared sheet pan. Bake until the bacon browns and the fat is rendered and bubbly (about 20-25 minutes). Combine the brown sugar and pecans in a small food processor. Pulse about 15 times or until the pecans are finely chopped. Remove the bacon from the oven, sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture, and pat down to adhere. Return to the oven and bake until the bacon is crisp (about 7-10 minutes). Cool on the rack for 10 minutes. Dice into medium sized pieces or keep whole.

Caramelized Onions

In a large saucepan over high heat, pour the oil into the pan. Then add the onions and toss until fully coated. Reduce heat to half and continue tossing or stirring every couple minutes until the onions are golden in color, soft, and sweet.

Tabañero Aioli*

Combine eggs, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic confit, and salt & pepper into a Robot Coupe food processor and puree. SLOWLY stream the oil into the top of the Robot Coupe to emulsify the aioli until it's very thick. Then stream the Tabañero Extra Hot Sauce into the Aioli until it's fully incorporated. Place the Tabañero Aioli into a squeeze bottle and refrigerate until ready to use.

Marinated Cucumbers & Tomatoes

In a medium bowl, combine the diced Cucumbers and Tomatoes with the vinegar, olive oil, and salt & pepper. Toss together until fully combined. Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes until chilled.

To Serve:

Toast or steam your hot dog buns. Boil and/or grill your hot dogs and place them into the buns. Spoon a heaping layer of the marinated cucumbers & tomatoes onto your hot dogs. Layer a stripe of caramelized onions on top. Then zig-zag the Tabañero Aioli over the two layers. Then place the bacon praline atop or on either side of the hot dog and enjoy!
