These Mexican Molé Hot Dogs will make you want to down a margarita this 4th of July!! Loaded with all beef hot dogs, avocado, fresh tomato, cojita and molé sauce you will be dancing the macarena!
After a 12.5 hour work day, and getting home after 7, it was Yoga Pants o’Clock!! And then it was Beer Thirty. Then Twist of the Top time, and after that – Slam One Back After 7! Some days you just need a brew to end the day. And when you’re downing Mexican food, you need a Mexican beer. Ben and I have been enjoying our fair share of Pacifico lately and they paired perfectly with these Mexican Molé Hot Dogs for the 2nd day of Hot Dog Week!
I know that 4th of July is this week, but I can’t help but think summer celebrations call for spicy Mexican food. We are a melting pot nation, so celebrate with a little food from every where!
I’ve recently become obsessed with molé, because our favorite local Mexican restaurant does such a good job at it!
They also do a good job at making Cadillac margaritas magically appear before me. But that’s another story.
Any time you can make chocolate into something savory, it’s a win and I’ve been wanting to add it to everything! I picked up three jars of different molés and have been devising ways to slip it on everything. Hot dogs seemed like the next plausible choice, and boy was I glad they worked out this well!
On a hot summer day, a slathered molé dog and cold beer do wonders for the soul. And frazzled nerves.
