A few years ago the Big 10 basketball tournament was held here in Indianapolis. As part of the event, the Levy restaurant group in Chicago produced unique hot dogs that highlight each of the Big 10 teams. I came across a copy of the list of the dogs recently, and just had to make each of them. These Michigan State spicy Spartan hot dogs are definitely spicy, but in a really good way. Jalapeno relish has a kick, but it’s not overwhelming at all. And since we’re doing spicy, let’s keep going by adding some spicy pepper jack cheese and spicy mustard. It’s a good heat for sure and one that will wake you up! These are not boring dogs!

Although jalapeno relish looks a lot like pickled jalapenos, it’s actually a bit sweet so the heat is not that hot. Oh it’s there, don’t get me wrong.  It’s great stuff that is also fantastic on burgers and wraps. And it’s outstanding on a Michigan State Spicy Spartan hot dog.
