The term “Choripán” is a combination of two words in Spanish. Chorizo and Pan. (Bread and Sausage).
Choripan is a delicious Street Food very popular in Argentina, that is made of Chorizo, Bread (French Baguette) and Chimichurri (A popular condiment for meats in Argentina)IngredientsChorizo ArgentinoFrench or crusty breadChimichurriTo make this recipe today instead of Chorizo, I am going to use German Sausage. I love the taste of Bratwurst, so in this particular case I’m going to make it with Bratwurst, yummy!If you cannot find chorizo or bratwurst where you live you could use Italian sausage and is really good too for this dish. Let’s start making the Chimichurri with one day in advance, I made it two days ago, so all the flavors of this sauce got combined deliciously.So I already have the Chimichurri ready, check here for recipe.Place the Chorizo or Bratwurst on a hot grill for 12 minutes or until cooked through. Cut the bratwurst in half lengthwise and added back to the grill for a few minutes before serving to make it a little bit crispy, how I like it ;)Cut the bread lengthwise to be ready to assemble the chori.Place the bratwurst inside the bread. Spoon the chimichurri over the cut Bratwurst, and enjoyed!For a vegetarian version, you can make this using your favorite vegetarian sausage.
Chimichurri is a simple and delicious sauce originally from Argentina, to accompany steak, bread, meat pies, Choripan (Chorizo and Bread, this is the dish in which we are going to enjoy this sauce) or in any delicious dish you would like to taste it. It is very easy to make and give you another goodness flavor to your meal.

There are those foods that will take you right back when you were young or a special moment of your life, well for me is hot dogs in coke, some people say funny things to me like you Colombians eat some weird food or things that just look like they are not going to work together and then you try them and they are really tasty and like this recipe or simple like sliding a banana in your hot soup is so delicious, (Pss give it a try and let me know what you think).
I used to eat them back in Colombia and bring me fond memories of special occasions with friends or friends to be, in Colombia is not unusual to invite a person that you just met to a family gathering or event as a welcoming.
So this recipe is super easy and delicious snack to share with friends and now that we are so closed to game day, why not have them for this special occasion.
I wanted to share with you my Vegan version of this recipe. I love to cook and I have adapted many family recipes to a Vegan version, this is of course healthier because is not meat on it, it’s based on organic soy protein, made with non-GMO ingredients and it’s great idea for those who are curious about Colombian weird food.
So here we go with one of my favorites appetizers.
