    To assemble: take a half of a warm pita, opening it and placing a deep fried hot dog in the pocket, then add some fried onions and peppers, next add some fried potatoes or french fries. Top with ketchup or mustard, whichever you prefer. We like ketchup on our "dogs" but you can use whatever you prefer.
