1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Pinch salt

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 white onion, thinly sliced

1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced

Half 8-ounce can chopped stewed tomatoes

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


2 hot dog buns

2 cooked hot dogs

1 cup shredded mozzarella

Kettle potato chips, crushed


  1. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and crushed garlic, and set aside in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet set over medium heat and saute the minced garlic, onions and bell peppers. Add the tomatoes and oregano, stir and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper and sugar to taste (just a bit of sugar for a hint of sweetness).
  3. Spread some of the mayonnaise mixture in the buns and place a hot dog in each. Then top the dogs with the tomato mixture, shredded cheese and some crushed chips to finish. Serve hot.
