Completos: Hot Dogs with Mayo
August 17, 2020
Food can be powerfully nostalgic and, with one bite, can transport us immediately to a specific place and time. One taste of a long-labored bolognese sauce as an adult can remind you of childhood Sunday dinners at grandma's when you'd take a nip from the pot where she was simmering her famous ragù. Suddenly you'd feel her doughy arms wrapped around you and hear the encouragement she'd whisper that you could be anything you wanted.
For our Vice President of Marketing, Chilean hot dogs with mayo and mashed avocado called completos, are one of these foods. She proudly, "ate her way through Chile with completos."
Midwesterners may think of a completo as similar to a Chicago-style hot dog, West Coasters may be reminded of a Dodger dog, and it may resemble a Yankee dog to East Coasters. Each one of these hot dogs differs, of course, based on tradition, but conceptually they're all hot dogs loaded with the toppings and condiments favored in their regions.
What Is a Completo?
A completo is a hot dog in a bun often sold by street vendors in Chile, with many creamy and fresh toppings. Completo translates to "complete" or "total" in Spanish, and the logic is literal in this case. These hot dogs with mayo can be bigger than American hot dogs and often feature chopped tomatoes, mashed or diced avocados, sauerkraut, diced onions, and mayonnaise.
Hot Dogs with Mayo
Smothered in earthy avocado, sauerkraut, onions, and Primal Kitchen Mayo, these Chilean-style hot dogs are a close relative to the Mexican-inspired Sonoran dog. Perfect for backyard BBQs, sports game watch parties, or family dinner nights.
5 keto-friendly hot dog rolls
- 5 grass-fed or pasture-raised beef hot dogs
- 2 medium avocados
- Juice from 1/2 lime
1/2 cup sauerkraut
- 1/4 red onion, finely diced
5 tablespoons Primal Kitchen Mayo with Avocado Oil
¼ ripe red tomato, finely diced
Primal Kitchen Whip Dressing & Spread
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Once hot, place the hot dogs on the grill. Flip them every 30 seconds or so until they are hot and have nice grill marks.
Place buns on the grill, split side down, for 1-2 minutes until grill marks appear.
Cut the avocados and scoop out the inside, discarding the pit. Mash the avocado with the lime juice.
Spread some of the avocado mixture on top of the hot dog. Add the chopped onion, tomato, and sauerkraut on top.
Place the mayo or whip in a squeeze bottle or piping bag and drizzle it over the top of the hot dog. Repeat with the remaining hot dogs. Enjoy immediately.
