Completos (Chilean Hot Dogs)

Start with nice fresh rolls, I like them a little crispy rather than soft
Make some mayonaise with egg yolks and oil, slowly adding the oil
Stirring constantly and adding more oil as you go
I add salt and lemon juice to the end result
Mashed avocado with a little oil and salt

Chopped tomatoes with a half clove of crushed garlic,


The last item (along with the sausage) is AJI (pronounced Ahee) which is a salsa made of onions, garlic, crushed chillies, corriander (cilantro), lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper...

Your completos looks wondeful, Vida, so nice, I hope you really enjoy them, and how you explain the ajì is fantastic, nobody understand when I speak of ajì, they know only Chilli (you know)Cariños. Gloria

My mom comments me too that she sometimes make the mayonaise in a Blender (juguera) she use a whole egg, oil and add some salt and pepper if you want, is so smooth with the white, if you want try sometimes, but I love yours.xxxWhen I was a child we only have this type of mayonaise.Gloria

HELLO ILVA, I am so glad you like my hot dogs!!! I feel like you have visited my home, welcome... x x x Vida

Gloria, I sometimes make the mayonaise with a electric mixer too but I think by hand you FEEL when it is ready. My mayonaise was SO yellow because I got the eggs from a farm and they are free range so the yolk was almost orange. Vida x x

Collywolly, welcome, it's nice to meet you!! I will now come to see you... Vida x x x
