World Cup Fever: Choripán Recipe

Living with an Argentine fútbol fanatic goes something like this: “Vamos vamos Argentina!! Vamos vamos a ganar!” and “Vamos Argentina todavia!!”


He is loud. And obnoxious. But I love him 🙂  (click here to watch a segment of a video on YouTube that will help you hear what I have been hearing lately).

Argentina played against Bosnia and Herzegovina yesterday, and Argentina won. There was a lot of yelling at the computer screen! When Lionel Messi scored the second goal, he jumped up and started shouting almost like he was hurt. I was in Sofía’s room changing her diaper at the time, and she looked at me with fear in her eyes. She thought something was wrong with her Papi!

While we’re on the subject of soccer and Argentina, let’s talk Choripán. In Argentina, for most events, there are vendors selling Choripán, and it’s a must to get this tasty sandwich if you go to any soccer game.
The Best Sausage Sandwich You'll Ever EatChoripán can be compared to a hot dog or, better yet, a sausage sandwich. A nice plump sausage is sliced in half and placed lovingly on a crusty roll, then it is slathered with a nice heaping spoonful of Chimichurri Sauce. Heaven. Pure heaven. I’m not even exaggerating. In other words: the BEST sausage sandwich you’ll ever eat.

When we make Choripán, we don’t always use Chimichurri Sauce. We sometimes use mustard and mayo instead. Either way, our hands and face get covered in piping hot sausage juice every bite we take, and our taste buds awaken to the sensational flavor of the meat and bread (what a surprisingly simple, yet delicious combination!).


1 package of Italian sausage links – at least 5 (we buy Johnsonville, but you can buy whatever brand you like – they aren’t paying me to write this, and they aren’t necessarily the best brand)
Long crusty rolls (at least 5)
Tomatoes, sliced (at least 3 slices per sandwich)
Lettuce, washed, dried, and hand-torn for more manageable sandwich eating
Chimichurri Sauce (half the recipe should be sufficient)

Cook the sausages according to package directions (we use the grill or the oven, and sometimes we cook them in a skillet on the stove) until they are a nice brown color. While the sausage links are cooking, prepare everything else. Make sure the rolls are cut in half, the tomatoes are sliced, and the lettuce has been prepped. Make the Chimichurri Sauce if desired.

Let the sausages cool, then cut each one in half. Put the fixings on each roll and enjoy while watching a World Cup game! I like to put mayo, mustard, tomatoes, lettuce, and sausage OR mayo, tomatoes, lettuce, Chimichurri Sauce, and sausage. It’s totally up to you!

We like to serve Choripán with different side dishes. Our favorite is Ensalada Rusa (which is basically Potato Salad). You can also serve it with chips, grilled veggies, Tomato Onion Salad, or a green salad.

Makes 5 sandwiches.
