Choripan Toastie

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves: 2

Choripan is an authentic Argentinean sandwich which consists of a crunchy white roll, a grilled chorizo sausage and fresh chimichurri. I thought I would take the concept and make this into a toastie and wow it did not disappoint. 

This recipe has loose measurements because well it is a toastie so you can take the concept and make it your own.

Ingredients:

4 slices of bread, I used sourdough but focaccia or Turkish bread works well too. 

2 chorizo sausages, finely diced

6 tablespoons chimichurri, you can find my recipe here

100 grams manchego cheese, grated

Method:

  1. Place a large non stick pan on medium heat and cook diced chorizo for a few minutes until cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside, leaving the pan juices. 
  2. place two slices of bread on the pan wiping up the chorizo pan juices. 
  3. lather 2 tablespoons of chimichurri on each slice of bread. Evenly divide chorizo, and top with cheese.
  4. Place another slice of bread on top and cook on medium low heat until crispy and cheese has melted. I cover the pan with a lid for a few minutes on each side to ensure cheese melts. 
  5. Serve with some extra chimichurri to dip in and enjoy.
