Buttery avocados and salty potato chip crumbs take this handheld hot dog feast to flavor heaven. Hass avocados are the dark green, pebbly-skinned variety. To ripen avocados, place them in a brown paper bag and store them at room temperature for 2 to 3 days.

I never would have thought to put avocado on a hot dog but it really works. I's great as a quick dinner for a busy night. Also, to make things more healthy I substituted a turkey dog for the beef and opted out of the potato chips.
