In the area I grew up in, Upstate New York, they had hot dog stands, hamburger stands...but, my favorite were the Mexican Hot Stands. Never heard of "Mexican Hots"? You don't know what you've missed! These made a plain, simple hamburger or hot dog uniquely delicious and all because of a hot relish that was poured on top of meat. This is my dad's recipe and we all love it!
