A Colombian-Style Hot Dog is one of the best hot dogs in the world.  In Colombia they don’t grill the hot dogs, they boil them and the toppings include coleslaw, pineapple sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard and potato chips.  Colombian hot dogs, when done right, are big, messy affairs, so dig in but make sure you have extra napkins.


Pineapple Sauce
2 cups fresh pineapple, peeled and cut into chunks
1/3 cup water
2 ½ tablespoons sugar or taste
1 ¼ teaspoon cornstarch
Juice of ½ a lime

6 hot dogs buns
6 pork and beef hot dogs

1 cup pineapple sauce
1 cup cole slaw
1 small bag potato chips, crushed into fine pieces


Put the pineapple and water in a blender and blend until smooth.
Press the pineapple mixture through a sieve into a small saucepan. Discard the pineapple on the sieve. Place the saucepan with the pineapple mixture over medium-low heat and add the lime juice and sugar. Cook, stirring for about 15 minutes. In a small bowl blend the cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water and then stir the mixture into the pineapple sauce.
Bring slowly to a boil, stirring until the sauce thickens. Simmer for 4 minutes while stirring. Let cool and transfer to a serving bowl.

In a medium pot bring water to a boil. Add the hot dogs to the boiling water and cover. Cook about 7 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Place the hot dogs in the buns and top with generous amounts of pineapple sauce, coleslaw, mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup, and top with crushed potato chips.

Serve and enjoy!

    This is wonderful. It reminds me of my youth in Bogotá. How I miss the hot dogs from the street vendors we used to get after closing down the bars on a Friday night.
