Pati's Mexican Table : Season One

Pati Jinich

What’s on the menu at a typical Mexican picnic? Are some foods, like hot dogs and hamburgers, universal? Turn your backyard into a little slice of Mexico by tweaking some old standbys. Learn how not only Mexican food has been adapted outside of Mexico, but also how American dishes have been transformed in Mexico.


I know that Pati did a episode with American Hot Dogs… I can’t find it anywhere~???
Please help, it looked so good, but I did not write it down~
thank you

Hi Valerie, Thank you for watching! Here’s how to make the hot dogs: Wrap a turkey hot dog with bacon and cook on the grill until done. Remove from heat and split the bacon-wrapped hot dog in half lengthwise. Sprinkle on about 2 tablespoons of grated melty cheese (like mozzarella or Monterey jack), and place back on the grill until the cheese melts. Meanwhile, toast a buttered hot dog bun on the grill. Serve on the bun topped with crumbled sausage, mayo, mustard, ketchup, chopped tomato and onion, and a grilled jalapeño chile.
