Your game day just got a whole lot tastier when you serve these Bird Gang Sonoran Nachos! Pile them high for game day sharing!
Are you familiar with the Sonoran Dog? When Brian and I first moved to Phoenix, I told him that I had heard about them and was dying to try one. One night while we were out, I told Brian I wanted to find one of these Sonoran Dogs to see what all the hype was about and I heard Nogales Hot Dogs was one of the best stands in the valley! If you’re ever in the Phoenix area and want to check it out, Nogales Hot Dogs is a small stand near 20th Street and Indian School Road – and to my knowledge, you can only find them serving their famous Sonoran Dogs at night!
Those Sonoran Dogs were everything I had hoped they would be and so much more! I loved the speedy service and it truly was one of the best hot dog combinations I’ve ever had. Although there are a few places to find a Sonoran Dog here in the Southwest, I really enjoy Nogales Hot Dogs. So what exactly is a Sonoran Dog? It’s a hot dog wrapped in bacon and cooked, then, it is covered in mayo, tomatoes, beans, onions and a variety of other sauces, typically served with a roasted pepper on the side. It is the bomb.
Loaded Southwest Nachos
When thinking of a way to shake up our game day snacks, I decided to give these Sonoran Nachos a try. Y’all, this just might be my family’s favorite nacho recipe of all time! I put everything we love on those Sonoran Dogs, on top of tortilla chips and baked them until everything was all melty and delicious! I debated on whether to add chopped hot dogs to the nachos but ultimately decided against it. Feel free to add some cooked, chopped hot dogs if you would like – I think it would be even more authentic! Feel free to adjust the amount of the ingredients to your family’s desired preference … we like our nachos LOADED!
