What you should know about the bulldog

The popularity of the dogo is due to the innovative process with which the “hotdogueros” create this dish and the ingredients with which it is prepared: a giant beef sausage, chopped bacon, chorizo, beans, mayonnaise, onion, avocado and jalapeño blended to make a sauce like no other.

The special bread for hot dogs is usually replaced by rolls to be able to use all the ingredients mentioned in its preparation.

In Ciudad Obregón, the process to prepare it is something that really draws attention: the bread, after being soaked by the steam, starts to brown on the grill. Subsequently, inside the bread, the Chihuahua cheese and the sausage are introduced, thus creating a new recipe: the quesidogo.

That’s right: the dogo, in addition to being an innovative recipe, also has other delicious versions, such as the chiledogo, the dogomomia or the pregnant dogo.

The versions of the bulldogs are also due to the region in which they are prepared. As we mentioned, these originated in the United States and in cities like New York, they are prepared with other ingredients and dressings such as sauerkraut.
