Eating Out The Fresnokie Dog
The Oki Dog is two hotdogs in a tortilla with pastrami, chili and fixins. You can see what I’m saying here. But like throwing a bucket of house paint at some hack’s godawful painting with every intention of starting over, there are still some elements we can be true to and make a good dog.
That okay though, we can adapt! Instead we’ll grab some of the still available varieties and do a little monkeying around to get a nice flavor and a mean burn. And of course we’ll make our own chili powder from scratch using 8 or 9 varieties of pepper. Kick in a little cheese and it’ll be perfect!
And here it is! In all it’s Fresnokie glory!
There it is! Chili rubbed weenie, homemade chili, fresh pepper relish, pepper jack and cotija cheese all wrapped up in a tortilla. It's everything a proud culinary maniac could hope for in a creation. 3 creations really, all married up into a complete package of piquant weinery chili cheesey goodness. And if that don't say Fresno, then I don't know what does!
