Mexican Hotdogs

Sometimes the kids just want a veggie dog and some fries (and sometimes I just don't feel like cooking much else). But, let's face it: veggie dogs really aren't that great. So, I tried to dress mine up a bit to make things more interesting. My deepest apologies to Mexican cuisine.

First, I made the hot dog buns (variation 3) from Peter Reinhart's The Bread Baker's Apprentice. They were totally awesome. Next, I roasted a red pepper and a jalapeno pepper on the grill. I skinned, seeded, and chopped them. The final hot dog had the peppers, chopped tomatoes, onions, and avocado, and some salsa. Not bad for a hot dog.
The other dog you see in the picture has vegenaise, mustard, onions, and sauerkraut. Mmmm.
