How to Make Mango Salsa Hot Dogs:

Hawaiian hotdog? You’ll definitely want to try it next time you have a BBQ!

And it’s super easy to make too! You can find all the details below, but here’s what you need to know:

  1. Prepare Hot Dogs: Butterfly cut the hot dogs and cook them using your preferred method – grilling, boiling, or roasting.
  2. Assemble: Place the cooked hot dog in a bun and generously top it with mango salsa.
  3. Enjoy: Dive right into your delicious combination.

Pro Tips: 

  • For added flavor, lightly toast the hot dog buns on the grill. So good!
  • Leave off the other condiments! Ketchup and mustard do not pair well with the salsa.

Are Mango Salsa Hot Dogs Healthy?

Traditional hot dogs are not known for being healthy foods. That’s pretty much agreed on by everyone!

But adding mango salsa is a great way to make them a little healthier!

All the fresh fruit and veggies? It’s gotta be better than just adding condiments!

Opt for leaner hot dog varieties or even seafood sausage dogs for a healthier twist.

Did you know there was such a thing as seafood sausage dogs? I just learned about them recently! 

I’ll have to do a post on them!

Are Mango Salsa Hot Dogs Keto?

Regular hot dogs and mango salsa can be keto-friendly if eaten in small portions.

But the hot dog buns usually are not. They’re really high in carbs and to stay keto, you want low carbs.

For a keto version, simply serve the hot dogs and salsa without the bun.

And if you have any questions, talk to someone who knows all things keto!

Can You Make Mango Salsa Hot Dogs Ahead of Time?

I find this mango dogs recipe is really best enjoyed fresh.

But you can prepare the salsa in advance and store it in the fridge.

Then you can just cook the hot dogs and spread the salsa on top.

If you want to cook the hot dogs beforehand, you can do that too.

But store it separately and warm it up before adding the salsa.

How to Store Leftover Mango Salsa Hot Dogs:

Wrap the mango hot dog in foil or place it in an airtight container. 

Store in the refrigerator and consume within the following day.

I really recommend not adding the salsa until you’re actually eating it though.

Maybe let each person add their own salsa as they serve it up.

That way you won’t have a bunch of soggy buns with cold hot dogs to eat the next day.

Can You Freeze Mango Salsa Hot Dogs?

No, you definitely can’t freeze these hot dogs.

While you can freeze hot dogs by themselves, you can’t freeze the salsa or the bun very well.

I think buns tend to dry out in the freezer.

And the salsa would become squishy and less then ideal after thawing.

What to Serve with Mango Salsa Hot Dogs?

Pair this mango salsa hot dog with sides like potato salad, corn on the cob, or a simple green salad for a complete meal.

Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  1. Split your hot dog down the middle but don't go all the way through. You want a butterfly cut (like you do to the bun).
  2. Cook the hot dogs your favorite method. We love slow roasted over the fire. However grilling, nuking or boiling will work too.
  3. Place split, cooked hot dog in a bun and top with a generous amount of mango salsa.
  4. Devour and repeat until you are full.
