The Polish Dog at El Chile Toreado, Santa Fe
The southwestern spin on gourmet hot dogs? Smoking-hot peppers as a trimming. Santa Fe’s El Chile Toreado, a food cart that was popular long before fancy food trucks rolled on to the scene, is hailed for its epic burritos. But the cart’s grilled hot dog is a mighty contender on the menu. Chef Berenice Medina's Polish Dog is topped with carnitas, cilantro, onions, cabbage, tomatoes, jalapeno, and a toreado green sauce. For pepper novices, chiles toreados are raw jalapenos, and the veins can be broken to release extra fire, which makes for a hot and spicy hot dog if you dare. Stop by the cart, at 950 W. Cordova Road, the next time you ski the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Or, reward yourself by sinking your teeth into a hot dog after tackling the Santa Fe mountain biking scene that’s grabbing more attention thanks to its maze of La Tierra trails or the laborious climb offered at Atalaya Mountain.
