Cuisinart original

This Arizona staple is a relative newcomer to regional hot dogs. Originally created in Hermosillo, the capital of the Mexican state of Sonora, in the 1980s this hot dog is wrapped in bacon and packed with fresh ingredients. Try one and you will see why Sonorans are spreading across the nation!
