Total Time: 40 min
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 25 min
Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 fresh chorizo sausages (about 1 pound)

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • One 16-ounce bag frozen pepper stir-fry, thawed

  • One 16-ounce jar salsa

  • 2 chipotles in adobo sauce, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce, from the jar of chipotle peppers

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 4 hero rolls

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, optional


  1. Preheat a grill to medium heat.

  2. Place the sausages on the grill. Use tongs to turn the links often, every 4 to 6 minutes. Cook until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Make sure to close the grill lid between turnings.

  3. Place a large cast-iron skillet on the side burner of the grill over medium-high heat. (If your grill does not have a side burner, then place a cast-iron skillet onto the grill when you go to preheat the grill.) Add the olive oil and pepper stir-fry and cook until the peppers are soft, about 5 minutes.

  4. Put the salsa into a bowl. Stir in the chipotles, adobo sauce and lime juice.

  5. Put a chorizo onto each roll and divide the pepper mixture evenly among the rolls. Top with the spicy salsa, garnish with cilantro, if using, and serve.
