  • 6 chorizo sausages


  • 1 jalapeno finely chopped
  • ½ small white onion minced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1 small red bell pepper finely chopped
  • ½ small white onion finely chopped
  • 1 small tomato chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Lightly toasted buns


  1. Heat one side of your grill to medium-high heat and the other to low for indirect cooking. Lightly oil the grates.
  2. Set the sausages on the cooler side of the grill and let cook about 20 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are mostly cooked through.
  3. Set them onto the hot side of the grill and cook them another 4-5 minutes per side, until they are nicely browned. The internal temperature should be 150 degrees F.
  4. While the sausages are cooking, make your salsa by combining all the salsa ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Toss and set aside.
  5. Add the chimichurri ingredients to a separate bowl and whisk together. Adjust for salt if you’d like.
  6. Serve the sausage on toasted buns and top with salsa and chimichurri.

Recipe Notes

Heat Factor: Medium, though your overall heat factor may change based on the brand of chorizo you purchase. The chimichurri and salsa criolla are fairly mild in heat, but have a LOT of flavor.
