It don't look like much, but inside, culinary delights await.
We'd heard much about the Sonoran hot dog from our friends, Joe & Sara, who live in Tucson. All of it Good, Glowing, and Rhapsodic.
But it sounded disgusting and, frankly, I was not a believer. And I definitely didn't want to start my day with one, but I was outvoted. We had places to go and a schedule to keep. Hot dogs for breakfast it was.
I was skeptical. I pointed longingly at a Starbucks as we drove by.
Let me explain my doubt.
Ingredients of the Sonoran Hot Dog
- Bacon wrapped beef hot dog
- Warm pinto beans
- Cojito cheese
- Crema sauce
This list is not a hard and fast rule. According to one website, you can “just stick whatever you want on there, and whatever amount, to make it taste good.” But yes, you start with the bacon-mummified hot dog and pinto beans...
I took a bite, and then I sighed with indulgence (minus the jalapeno).
I can't describe, but if you like a hot dog, I'm here to tell you, you've never HAD a hot dog until you try one of these babies. And yes, I've had an NYC hot dog. Toronto dogs are better than NYC, and I've had those too.
But the Sonoran Hot Dog? I devoured two. I considered three.
Breakfast redefined. Photo drama below.
If you are in the Tuscon area, visit El Guero Canelo, and tell them Girl Parker sent you!
JP is THRILLED.
Behold, the beauties.
Joe, our fearless eater, who clearly knew the scoop on this one.

The locals, who always know the best places.
Eden, you poser!
