Loaded Street Hot Dogs

Street hot dogs are known for taking plain old hot dogs to a whole new level. But there are a million and one different ways to make a killer street dog. Each country, city, neighborhood has its own version of what "a typical street dog" should include, and this recipe reminds me of the version I ate while growing up in my Rio de Janeiro neighborhood.

When they're done, move them to a cooler spot on your grill to keep them warm, or move them to a plate and set aside.
