Chef notes

This recipe brings a fun Caribbean twist to a tailgating party. The hot dogs are simple and fun, and the Creole potato salad is super tasty. This is football food, NOLA-style!

Technique tip: You can mix the salsa ahead of time.

Preparation

For the Caribbean-Style Hot Dogs:

1.

Mix onion, cilantro, mango, banana ketchup, mustard and lime zest and juice in bowl. Cover and chill.

2.

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and ranch powder, and mix until well combined. Set aside.

3.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

4.

Grill hot dogs and buns until heated through and grill marks form, 2-3 minutes per side for hot dogs and about 1 minute per side for buns.

5.

Transfer buns to plate. Place 1 hot dog in each bun, brush each bun with ranch mayonnaise. Add more mustard to taste, top with the mango salsa and serve.

For the Creole Potato Salad:

1.

Put the potatoes, water, eggs and 1 teaspoon salt in a large saucepan.

2.

Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and chill in the refrigerator.

3.

Cool the eggs by running under cool tap water. Peel and dice the eggs.

4.

In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and cool.

5.

Combine the remaining ingredients (including the remaining salt) in a bowl and stir to combine. Fold in the chilled potatoes and diced eggs. Garnish with paprika or cayenne pepper, if desired. Serve chilled.
