Hot Dog Completo

What is a hot dog in Chile? That all american food made the chilean way.
 Is it perrito caliente? Don't ask for this or you may get Fido
or salchicha? or just hot dog with a spanish twist to it? Jim says hot dogo
cause if you just add an 'o' to the end of a word it may actually be spanish for something!
My favorite brand is Receta del Abuelo. It has the most meat minus the food coloring.
Completo style has chopped tomatoes, mashed avocado, cilantro, catsup, and lots of mayo.
It may also have chucrut in the southern german parts which is sauerkraut.
Italiano has just tomato, avocado, and mayo which are the colors of the italian flag.
A lo pobre is the poor man's hot dog with fried onion, french fries, and a fried egg on top.

And to wash it all down a Coke Life made with stevia which, by the way, is not available in the good ol' US.

And these are calzones rotos or the torn underwear cookies. Quite tasty! They are just bits of fried dough with powdered sugar. I buy them at the feria but one of these days I'm going to try making my own.


  1. Looks delicious. PS Coke Life just came out in select markets in US.

  2. I'll take some torn underwear cookies....words I never thought I'd be typing. lolol
