Street vendors all over Sonora serve these tasty and super easy treats.



  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Wrap each hot dog in a slice of bacon from end to end diagonally until the whole strip of bacon is rolled around the hot dog, securing with a toothpick if needed.
  3. Heat a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon-wrapped hot dogs and cook, turning every 2 to 3 minutes, until browned on all sides. Transfer the skillet to the oven to render the bacon a bit more, about 5 minutes. Remove the toothpicks, if used.
  4. In a cast-iron skillet, heat the vegetable oil and add the diced white onion. Saute until translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the skillet and add to a small mixing bowl with the sliced raw onion. Set aside.
  5. Place one bacon-wrapped hot dog in a bun. Evenly divide the warm pinto beans, jalapenos, tomatoes and the onion mixture. Top with the hot sauce, mustard and mayonnaise. Repeat with the remaining hot dogs and serve hot.
