Tropical Hot Dogs Recipe

This Summer, Go Tropical With Hot Dogs

I'm no Joey Chestnut, however the warm Summer weather has left me a little crazy for hot dogs. My favorite frank to eat is one that's been dressed up, Chicago-style, but since the authentic specialty toppings aren't always easy to obtain on the West Coast, I went a different route this past weekend.

This tropical topping doesn't contain any of the same ingredients, yet it nonetheless achieves a similarly sweet, salty, sour, and spicy quality. Use all-natural hot dogs and buns, and you've got yourself a far less processed version of the ballpark hot dog. The best part? It takes minutes to make. For the ridiculously easy recipe, read more.

Thank you for posting these here because I really can't leave without eating hotdogs. I am so addicted to hotdogs and I want to try something different. I am just confused what hotdog would I try to do for that Oscar Meyer or Ball Park hot dog. Speaking of brand of hot dogs there are a war happening this too. It said that marketing and advertising statements often come with a thicket of difficult legal questions. Today, the manufacturers of Oscar Meyer hot dogs and Ball Park hot dogs started their face-off in court. The way you shop, what you pay for food, or even the packaging you see could all be impacted by the outcome of these lawsuits.
