Preparation time: 15 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes
1 medium avocado, halved, pitted
1 large ripe tomato, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, stem removed, seeded, finely chopped
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup finely chopped white onion
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
6 grilled hot dog buns
6 grilled all-beef hot dogs
6 tablespoons Mexican cheese blend, divided, optional
To make the relish: Cut the avocado into 1/4-inch dice and place in a bowl. Add the tomato, jalapeno, cilantro, onion, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix gently so you don’t break up the avocado pieces. Arrange the buns on a platter. Place the hot dogs in each bun and top each one with 1 tablespoon cheese, if using, so it melts slightly. Spoon relish on top and serve.
