Hello chowhounders! :)
After seeing a picture of my friend eating a mayo, cheese, and paprika covered corn on the cob, I realized I needed to throw a party with some of my favorite ghetto street foods: the heart attack dog (bacon-wrapped hot dog topped with grilled onions and bell peppers), and some mexican corn (not sure of its official, or unofficial name).
I've tried the bacon wrapped hot dog before, but I feel like it didn't taste the same as the ones i've had outside of a club at 2am. I tried my best to copy it visually, but maybe there's something that's not so obvious that is included in the making of this, heart-attack inducing, late-night snack.
and the mexican corn. Is it just butter, mayo, parmesan cheese, and paprika? Or is it a different kind of cheese?
Any advice, tips, or own recipes would be great and really helpful.
*edit: for those unfamiliar with the bacon-wrapped hot dog. here's a post from the Los Angeles board: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/430366
