Hot Doug’s Hot Dog Contest Declares a Winner

As I reported a little over a week ago, Hot Doug's and Time-Out Chicago challenged people to create a brand new hot dog recipe. The winner's entry will be featured on Hot Doug's very own menu for at least a week.

trophySo which dog is the lucky victor? The New Chicago! Created by Kevin Haas, this dish celebrates the Windy City's diversity:

Mexican chorizo sausage, Asian pear chutney, Indian paneer cheese, chili mustard, served on a multi-grain roll. As the original Chicago dog reflected our immigrant heritage (Greek, Italian, and Jewish immigrants), this encased meat reflects our new and future immigrant population. Latinos now account for 1 in 4 city residents, our Asian population is expected to grow over a third in a matter of a decade, and India presents the third largest group of new immigrants to Chicago. This new sausage celebrates this new Chicago.

The new dog isn't on the menu just yet, but I'll be sure to let you know when it is. What do you think of this 'new' Chicago-style hot dog?
