Hot dogs: LOVE THEM OR HATE THEM?

What’s in these Loaded Chorizo & Kimchi Hot Dogs?
Grilling or sautéing the hot dogs is the easy part. These Loaded Chorizo & Kimchi Hot Dogs do come with a little bit of prep, which isn’t hard. BUT! If you are going to commit to these life changing hot dogs you’ve got to dive in head first. You will need:

Tips for Making Loaded Chorizo & Kimchi Hot Dogs:
1. Hot dog. You can use whatever kind of hot dog you’d like! If you would prefer chicken or pork go ahead and sub out. I would suggest getting an organic option so at least you know it will taste the best! Of course, if you need to use Oscar Mayer footlong……GO FOR IT!
2. Chorizo. You’ve got to use the fresh kind. Run away from the tube chorizo!!
3. Pork rinds or chicharrons. You can find a bag at your local grocery store. They will be in the chip aisle.
4. Kimchi. Try to find the fresh kind in the refrigerator section at the grocery store!
5. Mexican crema. Think of this as the most luxurious sour cream! You can typically find it near the sour cream at the grocery store. If not, regular sour cream will work!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I make this vegetarian?
Yes! I would substitute the hot dog and chorizo for a plant based product. There are so many options out there! Also, for the pork rinds you could crush chili fritos instead!
Can I make this ahead of time?
You bet! I typically cook the chorizo prior. It will last a few days in the fridge. You could also grill the hot dogs prior to assembly. Simply reheat in the microwave or on the stove top.
