    Erica, first of all I love your website. Every time I come here I find more than one recipe I like. I will definitely try this one when having guests at home next time.

    This definitely sounds like a fun way to make hot dogs. Plus I just tried a sparkling bbq sauce made with 7up and the lightness that it brought to the dish. This sounds like it could be similar to that.

    P.S. Loved the way you cut up your hot dogs. Very cute!

    When I saw this post it brought tears to my eyes. My dad, whom I lost when I was sixteen, used to make these for me all the time. He used to call them aranas and serve them with popcorn. Truly a wonderful memory of mi papi. Thanks for posting this!

    I have had these before and also spare ribs…not a bad combo, I must say. I use it also when I make pernil (Puerto Rican pork roast) and the skin does not want to get crispy…just brush some coke on it….

    I also grew up with these. They were a must at children’s birthday parties. I add some ketchup and mustard to the Coca Cola, it cuts on the sweet adding some tanginess to it.

    This is eye catching and quite easy. You Colombians do like your Coke, don’t you? I tried your Rice with Coke last week and it was very good. Sounded odd but I trusted your tastes and it came out great:)

    I like the cuts you made on the end. It helps appearance and gives more surface area for the coke sauce to adhere to.

    This may be a silly question, but do you cook the hotdogs in the Coca-Cola or cook them regularly in water first and then add them?

    Im wondering what to eat this with? For example,what would complement the taste of the hotdogs with coke and turn this appetizer into a main meal? Also i have rice and pasta, im looking for how to make it so that it combines with the hotdogs to make a main dish. Thanks for your help!

      Hi Alex,

      This is an appetizer, but maybe rice! I usually serve my chicken with coca-cola over white rice and it is delicious!
