Hot Dogs with Avocado

These hot dogs with avocado were sooooo good it really didn’t matter that I almost burned a bun. Heck, I could have charred the bun to total blackness and these still would’ve disappeared in minutes. They’re just that good. The crispness of the onion is offset by the smooth sour cream and avocado, the citrus kick of fresh lime, and just a slight hint of heat.
