Published June 29, 2010 3:01PM (EDT)


  • Beef franks
  • Bacon slices, one per frank
  • French rolls
  • Butter
  • Vegetable oil
  • Pinto beans (canned are OK, drained)
  • Jalapeño peppers, seeded, to taste
  • Garlic, to taste
  • Chili powder (preferable New Mexican)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Tomatoes, diced
  • Mayonnaise, to taste
  • Limes
  • Cheese of your choice, shredded
  • Avocado, cut into wedges


  1. Dice jalapeños and mince garlic. Sauté them in a small splash of vegetable oil until fragrant, and add a few pinches of chili powder. Add beans and water just to cover and simmer until the beans are tender and the mixture thickens a bit. Adjust seasoning with salt and chili powder to taste.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  3. Wrap a beef frank in bacon and sauté until the bacon is crispy on all sides. While that's cooking, take a French roll and slit it open, toss on a pat of butter and crisp it in an oven.
  4. Insert weiner in bun (hur hur hur). Slap that sucker wet with beans, and top with diced tomatoes, mayonnaise and a touch of lime juice.
  5. Want more? Can you handle more? OK -- add on some cheese and avocado wedges. Yum. Enjoy with a beer or an Arizona sunset.
