From Wikipedia about the Sonoran Hot Dog.


The Sonoran-style or Estilo Sonora hot dog, found in Tucson, Metro Phoenix, and in neighboring Sonora,Mexico, is a hot dog wrapped in mesquite-smoked bacon then cooked on a grill or on a griddle or comal,[1] then topped with beans, grilled onions, fresh onions, tomatoes, mayonnaise, cream sauce, mustard and Jalapenosalsa or sauce and served on bread and often with a side fresh-roasted chili. It originated in Hermosillo, the capital of Sonora.[2][3]

I have not had one in a while, but I ended up stuck and missed and had to leave my lunch in work for tomorrow.  OK.  I stopped at a cart on the way to the bus.  As per usual, it is family run.  The cart is really on a corner of their house and they come in and out of the house.  Mom speak Spanish only, but that much, I can make it through.  Yeah, I know, food, I’ll make it work LOL!  The kids knew an Anglo when they saw one.

I got two hot dogs.  While waiting for the bus, a homeless guy was mad cause I wouldn’t give him one.  Hey, I hadn’t eaten all day and I am grumpy, don’t push your luck.

Not exactly on anyone’s diet, but a good treat, after a tough day.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
