  • Bacon grease
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • 1 small yellow or sweet onion, sliced
  • 2 slices center-cut applewood smoked bacon
  • One 8-ounce all-beef frankfurter, such as Alpine Meats Frankfurter
  • Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce, recipe follows
  • 1 gourmet seeded hot dog bun, toasted
  • Hickory smoked bacon chunks, rendered
Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup mayo (if you don't like mayo, you can use sour cream or plain yogurt)
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Juice from 1/2 a lime
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Heat a skillet over medium heat. Melt some bacon grease, add the jalapenos and saute until soft and dark, 8 to 10 minutes. In another skillet over medium heat, melt some bacon grease, add the onions and saute until soft and caramelized, 8 to 10 minutes.

Take the bacon and, starting at one end, wrap the entire length of the frankfurter until completely covered. Secure with toothpicks.

Heat a deep-fryer to 350 degree F. Fry the frankfurter until the bacon is cooked, about 3 minutes.

Spread some Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce on the bun. Add some jalapenos. Add the frankfurter. Top with onions. Squeeze on more sauce. Sprinkle with bacon chunks.

Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce:

Combine the mayo, chipotle powder, garlic and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
