Happy Fourth of July!

Many years ago, an ancestor of mine, a German immigrant to Pennsylvania, helped fight a war that led to the creation of the United States of America.

I think that’s something to be proud of.

So let’s celebrate with a hot dog of sorts, Argentina’s choripán.

The word is a portmanteau of chorizo and pan: spicy sausage and bread.

What could be better than a bread roll stuffed with grilled chorizo sausage and chimichurri sauce?

I’ll tell you what’s better: a bread roll stuffed with grilled chorizo sausage and chimichurri sauce PLUS piquillo peppers, cheese, sour cream and fried onions.

Oh yeeeeeeeeeeeah!


Anna’s take on Argentina’s hot dog.


Grilled or fried chorizo sausages
Thinly sliced piquillo peppers
Finely grated parmesan (or queso freso)
Chimichurri sauce
Sour cream
Hot dog rolls or mini baguettes
Fried onions


Build your sandwich from the above ingredients and enjoy!

And how about a tropical fruit shake on the side, Cubano style?

Now that’s what I’m talking about!


  1. Ahhh, the joys of sausages and frankfurts wedged into soft buns! Love getting the chorizo rolls at the Chatswood weekly markets where you help yourself to as much "green sauce" or "red sauce" as you like.

  2. I love chorizo, it works with everrrrrrything! yum!

  3. mademoiselle - red sauce and green sauce are both equally gooood

    minibites - yes chorizo does work with everything

  4. I'd always thought that Icelandic hot dogs would be my favourite. Though I think this pips it at the post. Winner.


Thanks for saying hello. It's great to know there are people out there in cyberspace!
