The completo (Spanish for "complete", "total") is a hot dog variation eaten in Chile, usually served with ingredients such as chopped tomatoes, avocados, mayonnaise, sauerkraut, a variation of the sauce américaine, Chilean chili, green sauce and cheese. Its size can be twice of an American hot dog.
The multiple combinations of the ingredients of the completo leads to have specific names for the most typical ones, for example:
- Completo (Complete): Traditional version with chopped tomatoes, mayonnaise (a large amount) and sauerkraut.
- Italiano (Italian): Consists of chopped tomatoes, mashed avocados and mayonnaise. The name comes from its resemblance with the colors of the Italian flag.
- Dinámico (Dynamic): A mix of the aforementioned ingredients (tomatoes, avocados, mayonnaise and sauerkraut) or sauce américaine.
- As (Ace): A version which consists of cuts of "churrasco" (grilled meat) instead of sausages, mashed avocado, tomato and mayonnaise. It's a variant version of the "italiano".
- A lo Pobre (Poor Style): Consists of fried onion, french fries and a fried egg on top of the hot dog.
- Tomate mayo (Tomato-mayo): As its name suggests, it is a version with only chopped tomatoes and mayonnaise.
The completo is also a type of hot dog eaten in Brazil, which has at least mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, corn, peas, tomatoes, onions, Parmesan cheese and fries. In São Paulo, it is common to add mashed potatoes. Common extra fillings include chicken, cream cheese, ground meat and olives.
