Completo's (Chilean Hot Dog) for Save the Children!

Frigidaire and Jennifer Garner are hitting the field at the Stain Games this week in support of Save the Children's efforts to promote healthier lifestyles for children living in poverty. You can join in the fun from home by taking a virtual swing at http://www.maketimeforchange.com/. When you do, Frigidaire will donate up to $1 to Save the Children. Plus, to help spread the word, everyone who participates will be entered for a chance to win a new Frigidaire Affinity washer and dryer featuring Ready Steam™.

Foodbuzz has also asked it's featured publishers to post a healthy summer baseball recipe to help create awareness of the Save the Children Campaign & the Stain Games.  So with that we started thinking of what foods baseball and summer remind us of...we came up with HOT DOGS!!  But hot dogs (especially those yummy chili cheese dogs) can be not soon the healthy side.  But this is a great recipe for making that dog yummy & healthy for your children!

Not only are these healthy but they are so stinkin' good!!  I'd never been much of a hot dog fan until I met this hot dog!!  My little brother Brandon served a mission in Chile and came home and introduced us all to these dogs.  He says they're not the same as what they have in Chile, but they sure are the best hot dog I've ever had!!  They are perfect for spring and baseball season...I always crave them this time of year!!

Completo's (Chilean Hot Dog)
Hot dogs (preferably all beef or turkey...light would be great too!), grilled to your liking
Homemade or Deli Hot Dog Rolls (whole grain is SOOO good with these!!)
Guacamole (recipe below)
Sweet Pickle Relish
Diced Tomatoes
Ketchup
Mustard
Shredded cheese (preferably light!)

How to make the perfect Guacamole for Completo's:
2 ripe avocados
Dash of freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated coarse salt
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Cut avocados in half and remove the pit.  Scoop out the avocado with a spoon and put into a medium sized bowl.  Mash the avocado with a fork until the desired consistency (I like mine a little on the chunky side, but you can mash it really smooth if you like).  Add the salt & pepper, lime juice, and garlic powder and mix to combine.  Serve immediately or it will brown on you...still is good, just doesn't look as appetizing!:)

So here's how you build your completo:
Take you bun and put a dog in it.  Then top it with some pickle relish & then a couple of Tablespoons of guacamole.  Next you want to put your diced tomatoes on...you want to put them on right after the guacamole because they will "stick" to it and not fall off!  Next put on your ketchup & mustard and then sprinkle on some cheese! 

My kiddo's even like these and they are so much better for you than chili cheese dogs (and so much better in my opinion!)

Hope you enjoy & don't forget to go take a "virtual swing" for Save the Children at http://www.maketimeforchange.com/!!  Thanks!!
