How to make tropical mango hot dogs
It's simple to make these delicious tropical mango hot dogs. Here's how they come together in a few easy steps:
- Crisscross slice the hot dogs and cook them until crispy on your preheated grill. Grill your buns for a few minutes too, if you'd like.
- While the hot dogs are grilling, work on the rest of your meal. Mix up the mango salsa by stirring together the mango, avocado, and jalapeño together in a small bowl.
- Make the sweet and spicy mayo by stirring all ingredients together in a separate small bowl.
- Stir the coleslaw mix together.
- Now assemble your hot dog by topping each bun with sweet mayo, coleslaw, a smokie, and some mango salsa. That's it!

I liked this a lot. The sweet mayo and mango were yummy!
This looks great and I can’t wait to try this 4th of July. It has me thinking for my vegan friend about trying to make a black bean hot dog instead of burger, what are your thoughts? Any tips on how to form/cook a black bean hot dog!
That’s such an awesome idea!
At the bottom of this post, I’ve linked to a black bean burger. I wonder if you could form it into a hot dog shape. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. You’d definitely want to cook it in a pan as it may fall apart on the bbq. If you give it a go, I’d love to hear how it turned out. I’m super curious!
