Hot Dog Alert #22

My secret food passion (other than hot dogs) is Mexican food. I mean who doesn't love the greasy and salty goodness of tacos, tamales, enchiladas and the like? The only problem is that is just doesn't feel right eating it at a ball game. Nachos are a ballpark staple but I need a hot dog. Some teams like the Albuquerque Isotopes have had an enchilada dog and the Isotopes have the right idea; why not fuse the favorites of Mexican food AND a hot dog?

The Texas Rangers answered the call on this and did so in typical Texas fashion: in a BIG way. Ever heard of the Most Valuable Player (MVP)? The Rangers now have the Most Valuable Tamale (MVT). The MVT takes the Rangers famous 24 inch Boomstick Dog to another level by stuffing it inside of a tamale. Then covering it with chili, nacho cheese and sour cream. Cost: $27. It sounds like a lot, but take it from me, I have had the original Boomstick Dog and it can easily feed four people. That is less than 7 bucks per fan to tackle this monstrous, Mexican meat bomb.

A roll of Tums is not included but recommended.
