“Since it’s covered in salsa verde, a spicy ají sauce, ketchup, mayo, and mustard, you may need a bowl to eat this dog,” Russell van Kraayenburg admits.
The key is to slow-simmer the dogs in water seasoned with garlic, chopped tomatoes, onions, and more than a little hot sauce. Granted, you’re unlikely to find this on an actual street in Ecuador, but that’s their loss, not ours.
