This is a genius invention from I Dream of Weenie in East Nashville, Tennessee. Once you go chow-chow, you'll never go back. If you can't find chow-chow in the store, you can order it from —HMMessinger

What You'll Need
  • For the hot dog assembly:
  • diced red onion
  • yellow mustard
  • 6 hot dog buns
  • 6 kosher hot dogs, grilled
  • chow-chow
  • pickled jalapeños (recipe follows)
  • For the pickled jalapeños:
  • 4 medium jalapeños
  • 3/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons raw cane sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 cloves
  1. Make the pickled jalapeños. Slice the jalapeños into small, thin rounds.
  2. In a small pot, heat vinegar, sugar, salt, red pepper, bay leaf, and cloves until boiling.
  3. Add jalapeños to the pot and cook for 30 seconds.
  4. Pour everything into a resealable jar, making sure the pepper slices are completely submerged. Let cool completely before using.
  5. Twenty minutes for hotdog time, soak the diced red onions in cold water. Drain well before using.
  6. To assemble the Rebel Yelp, place yellow mustard on the inside of the bun, top with a grilled dog, then smother with chow-chow. End with a few pickled jalapeños and diced red onions.

Recently stopped at I Dream of Weenie and ordered The Rebel Yelp for first time. It has a little bit of a sweet and spicy kick to it that comes from the special Tennessee relish on it. The yellow mustard compliments the relish perfectly. Just great
