  1. Place hot dogs on a preheated grill, about 4 inches from a medium flame. Cook for about 6 to 10 minutes or until cooked through.

  3. Place cooked hot dogs in buns and top with Zesty California Guacamole.

Zesty California Guacamole Instructions

  1. Remove stem from chile and discard. Mince chile and place in a medium bowl. (For a milder guacamole discard the seeds, or keep them for a spicier guacamole.)
  2. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and mash together, leaving some chunks of avocado. Season to taste and serve.

Serving Suggestions: Top with caramelized onions, diced tomatoes, diced chiles or other favorite hot dog toppers.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
