Guatemalan Food: The Shuco Hot Dog

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Guatemalan Food: The Shuco

This Guatemalan shuco hot dog is a mixto [mixed], meaning it has more than one meat, four meats to be precise here: chorizo [red sausage], longaniza [white sausage], salchicha [franks] and salami. Even Wikipedia has an updated description for the Guatemalan shuco hot dog. Wow, it’s been a while since I last shared a picture of a shuco hot dog with you guys. Bon appetite!

This is what Wikipedia has now under Guatemalan hot dogs:

In Guatemala shucos are sold across the country, especially in the country’s capital, Guatemala City. Shucos are usually served with guacamole, boiled cabbage, mayonnaise, mustard, and an assorted choice of meats. Chopped onions are added by a decent amount of shuqueros (hot dog vendors) across Guatemala City and Antigua. The most popular choices of meats are sausage, chorizo (red sausage), salami, longaniza (white sausage), and bacon. They are cooked in a carbon grill and hot sauce is offered at customer’s request.
