Ingredients To Make Brazilian Hot Dogs
First, start by chopping and dicing the green pepper, onion and mincing the garlic cloves.
Make a length wise cut down the center of each of your hot dogs. Do not cut through them or slice them completely.
Add butter to a sauce pan over medium high heat.
Once the butter has melted, add the green peppers and onions. Saute until the onions become translucent.
Add the garlic and saute for about 30 seconds.
Pour in the tomato sauce and water. Give everything a quick stir.
Once the tomato sauce begins to boil, lower the heat to medium low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir the tomato sauce occasionally.
Once the tomato sauce has been simmering for 23 minutes, add the hot dogs. Cover and continue to cook for the next 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. It’s time to build your Brazilian hot dogs! Place a hot dog inside a bun and add more tomato sauce on top. Add the additional toppings to your “cachorro quente Brasileiro” such as peas, corn, parmesan cheese, shoestring potato sticks (batata palha), ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise and even some hot sauce or pimenta malagueta if you’d like. Top the hot dogs with parsley for garnishing, if desired, and enjoy!
