Avocado Hot Dog Relish
Ingredients:
1 ripe avocado from Mexico (about 8 ounces)
3/4 cup chopped sweet red bell pepper
1/3 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
8 hot dogs, knockwurst, or other fully cooked sausage
8 hot dog buns
1/2 cup brown mustard.
Preparation:
To prepare Avocado Relish: Cut avocado lengthwise around the pit; twist halves to separate; strike pit with a knife blade and pull to remove; gently scoop out flesh with a spoon. Dice avocado (makes about 1 cup). In a small bowl, combine bell pepper, onion, vinegar, sugar, salt and ground red pepper; gently stir in avocado. Meanwhile, preheat a countertop or charcoal grill; cook hot dogs until hot and lightly browned, about 5 minutes (alternatively, cook over medium heat in a large skillet, turning once). Spread cut sides of buns with mustard. Place hot dogs in buns; spoon Avocado Relish on top. Serve with tortilla chips, if desired.



About Avocados From Mexico
Here’s a bit of avocado trivia: the world’s first avocado actually came from Mexico. Their authentic flavor and rich, creamy taste has been perfected over generations. Plus, Mexico is the only place in the world where avocado trees naturally bloom four times a year, so naturally, Avocados from Mexico are always in season. Avocados from Mexico are handpicked from USDA certified orchards and shipped to the U.S. within 3 to 4 days! No wonder they’re called “the world’s finest.”
I wrote this blog post at the request of Avocados from Mexico, making me eligible to get a $25 iCARD gift card.
