My Dodger Stadium Doyer Dogs are like bringing the ballpark home, but with a more flavorful punch! This hot dog is nestled in a pillowy bun before being covered with my Beer Braised Beanless Chili, Beer Cheese Fondue, pico de gallo, sour cream and sliced jalapeños.

First of all, let’s be clear. I’m a Chicago Cubs fan through and through. Each of our four children’s middle names are a street around Wrigley Field. It doesn’t get more legit than that in my book. But when I heard about what the Los Angeles Dodgers serve in their ballpark? Well, I had to give these Dodger Stadium Doyer Dogs a try. Yes, the Dodger are famous for their Dodger Dogs, but these Doyer Dogs are a Mexican themed counterpart inspired by the Spanish-language version of the team’s name
These Dodger Stadium Doyer Dogs are also a mashup of my favorite ballpark foods and the only food that my five year old son won’t complain about eating. I swear I don’t understand how I ended up with such a picky eater at my dining room table, but man does this kid love hot dogs! Hot dogs definitely don’t rank anywhere on my foods I love to eat list but I do however live for stadium nachos. In fact, if I’m attending an evening sporting event, they’re my go-to dinner choice. So combining our two loves together into one dish seemed like a no-brainer, right?
Of course, my Dodger Stadium Doyer Dogs are upping the flavor ante. The one you’ll find in the ballpark is covered in chili, nacho cheese sauce, pico de gallo, sour cream and jalapeños. My dog? I’m using my Beer Braised Beanless Chili as a substitute for something that likely comes out of a can in the Los Angeles version. And although I do love processed nacho cheese – it really is a guilty pleasure of mine! – I instead used my Beer Cheese Fondue. Because, really. It’s a ballpark food and what goes better with ballpark food than beer? Or in this case, beer flavored ingredients? Let me tell you, I inhaled two of these dogs without a second thought.
I have grand plans of serving these at our Super Bowl party in a couple of weeks. Talk about easy! Setting out all of the ingredients and letting everyone make their own. Extra sour cream for me, thank you. And you know my son is eating his plain. His loss.
Dodger Stadium Doyer Dogs
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Place hot dogs on baking sheet and with a knife, make a slice about half way through the hot dog, lengthwise.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- Place hot dogs in buns and top with chili, fondue, pico de gallo, sour cream and jalapeños.
Although I chose to oven roast the hot dogs in my Dodger Stadium Doyer Dogs, you definitely could also choose to use Air Fryer Hot Dogs or even Spiral Grilled Hot Dogs to put your own spin on them. And if you really want to go all out? I have no doubt they’d be amazing on these Homemade Hot Dog Buns.
