For this recipe, I am going to be starting off with the best hot dogs on the market, Nathans.  If you disagree, you are just plain wrong and I feel sorry for you.  Nathans is an American staple and worth our praise.

Lime Cilantro Aioli

Lime Cilantro Aioli

Lime Cilantro and Jalapeños.  How can that be bad at all!  This stuff is pure gold.  It is a spicy and fresh sauce to put on any sandwich, salad, eggroll, jalapeño poppers, tacos, burritos, rice, beans, ice cream, brownies, or whatever your heart desires.  (Don’t really put it on your ice cream or brownie, that’s weird.  I know some of you will.)

It is super simple to make and can store in the refrigerator for several months.

This would go perfectly with the Rattlesnake Bites we made earlier.
