“Since it’s covered in salsa verde, a spicy ají sauce, ketchup, mayo, and mustard, you may need a bowl to eat this dog,” van Kraayenburg admits. The key is to slow-simmer the dogs in water seasoned with garlic, chopped tomatoes, onions, and more than a little hot sauce. Granted, you’re unlikely to find this on an actual street in Ecuador, but that’s their loss, not ours.
FOR ECUADORIAN WATER BATH
5 garlic cloves
Handful each of chopped tomatoes and chopped onions
Hot sauce to taste Enough water to cover dogs (depends on skillet size)
FOR HOT DOG
