Argentinian Choripán

If you enjoy a delicious sausage sandwich, then you’ll love the Argentinian Choripán. This South American specialty has grown in popularity, and now you can make these sandwiches at home!


What is Choripán?

Choripán, a beloved Argentinian sandwich, has gained widespread popularity across South America. The name “choripán” stems from “chori,” a shortened form of chorizo, and “pan,” which translates to bread. The sausage is sliced lengthwise, grilled hot and fast, and then served with a generous helping of chimichurri sauce.

Argentinian Chorizo

What is Argentinian chorizo?

Argentinian chorizo is an unsmoked sausage made from a combination of pork and beef and contains flavorful ingredients like herbs, wine, and paprika. Argentinian chorizo should not be confused with spicier varieties such as Mexican chorizo. Rather, it is mild and similar to sweet Italian sausage. For added flavor, you can smoke these sausages with ease on a pellet grill, charcoal unit, or other smoker.

Argentinian Choripán

How to make Argentinian Choripán:

  1. You can use any grill for this recipe; however, we had the opportunity to use The Puma by Nuke and had a lot of fun with it. Any flat-top griddle or standard backyard grill will also work well for this recipe. But before we start grilling, let’s make the chimichurri first.
  2. Prepare the chimichurri as directed in the recipe card below, and store itin an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. Preheat your grill to 350-degrees F.
  4. Slice the sausages 3/4 of the way through lengthwise, and place them onto the grill split side down. Plan on a short cooking time.
  5. Cut the bread in half lengthwise, brush with live oil and toast on the grill for 1-2 minutes.

Assembling Choripán

  1. Spread 2-3 tablespoons of chimichurri on the inside of the bread.
  2. Top with cooked sausages, sliced tomatoes, lettuce, and caramelized onions. Cut the sandwiches in half and serve.
  3. Store leftover sausages in an airtight container in the fridge for 4 days.
  4. Reheat sausages in a skillet over medium heat. Build your Argentinian Choripán sandwiches as directed.
