You will need:

  • 8 wooden toothpicks, soaked in water for 10 minutes
  • 4 hot dogs
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 4 hot dog buns
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream, divided
  • 1 avocado, cut into 8 slices
  • 4 tablespoons hot or mild salsa, divided


  • Preheat the grill to medium-high.
  • Wrap the bacon in a spiral around each hot dog, then secure the bacon with a toothpick on each side.
  • Place the hot dogs on the grill and cook, turning once, until the bacon is crisp, about 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime prepare the hot dog buns by spreading a tablespoon of sour cream on the inside of each bun.

  • Top with 2 slices of avocado on each hot dog and a tablespoon of salsa.
