There is something about Chicago and the Cubs that make me crave hot dogs. While we were in Chicago this weekend all I could think and talk about were sport peppers. This is the reason for the picture, since once the dogs are done I am throwing those peppers on them and anyone in my way better look out. Now if you have never has a Chicago style hot dog, believe me the sport peppers make the hot dog. In my opinion, a hot dog without sport peppers is not a hot dog at all. Well my hubby heard my cries and asked me if I wanted to make Chicago style hot dogs for dinner. This was one question that did not need to be asked twice. This post is also a shout out to all the readers from the region, especially Jessica Wright who adores the Weiner’s Circle.
