 Tina's Spicy & Sweet Tomato-Onion Marmalade with Avocado and Cilantro

 Yield:  8 servings

Time:  30 minutes

1 Tbsp. vegetable oil

1 cup small diced onion

2 Tbsp. finely chopped garlic

2 cups medium diced tomato

2 tsp. sriracha sauce

2 Tbsp. sugar

¼ cup lime juice, divided

½ cup finely chopped avocado

3 Tbsp. chopped cilantro

8 hot dogs

8 hot dog buns, split and toasted

 To make the tomato marmalade, heat a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Add the oil and sauté the onions until light brown, about 10 minutes.  Add the garlic and continue to cook until aromatic, about 30 seconds.  Add the tomato, sriracha and sugar, and sprinkle with salt.  Continue to cook until most of the water has evaporated and the mixture is thick, about 15 minutes.  If the tomatoes haven't broken down, add a splash of water and mash them with a fork.  Continue to cook until thickened.  Stir in 1 Tbsp. of the lime juice.  Adjust seasoning.  Reserve.

 In a separate bowl, combine the avocado, cilantro and remaining 3 Tbsp. lime juice.  Season with salt and pepper.

 Heat a grill over medium high heat.  Cook the hot dogs until heated through and lightly charred on the outside.  Place in hot dog buns. Top with marmalade and avocado.
