Spicy Chicken Chili Dogs to Kick off Summer + Giveaway – Design*Sponge

Between Harlem and Heaven: Afro Asian American Cooking for Big Nights, Weeknights, and Every Day by chefs JJ Johnson and Alexander Smalls drew me in from the title alone. Opening the book was every bit as alluring. The breadth of cultures and flavors covered by the text and recipes means there’s something for everyone — vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore. The recipe for Yard Dogs with Bebop Chicken Chili we’ve chosen to share captures the spirit with which JJ and Alexander have intertwined history and culture to produce their mouthwatering recipes. The yard dogs are named after jazz great Charlie “Yardbird” Parker, and topped with chili (another ode to Charlie Parker) that is built upon a body of spicy black beans — a key component of Brazilian feijoada, a mainstay of the African diaspora. Why not try grilling these dogs for your next outdoor BBQ? —Kristina
