2013 All American Recipe Contest - Favorite 4th of July Recipe Category Grand Prize Winner!

I'm celebrating our day of American Independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain with a "banged-up" version of an American favorite - a 4th of July hot dog! My tribute is tongue-in-cheek to say the least, with "Bangers" having a double meaning here… 1. the "bang" of fireworks in your mouth comes with the burst of heat from jalapeño peppers in my pickled Avocado-Jicama Relish, and, 2. that "Bangers" are a sausage link served in the U.K. fondly known as part of Bangers & Mash!
