Make a Chorizo Sandwich With Peppers and Loads of Cholula

This feature was produced in collaboration between Vox Creative and Cholula Food Company. Vox Media editorial staff was not involved in the creation or production of this content.

Matt and Emily Hyland, the husband-wife duo behind Emily and Emmy Squared pizzerias in Brooklyn, NY, went to college in Rhode Island and fell in love with a local recipe for chouriço (chorizo) and peppers. It's a Portuguese staple (Rhode Island has a huge Portuguese population), and it's loaded with spice.

Fortunately, the Hylands are no strangers to meat and some fiery peppers — you'll find loads of banana peppers on their pizzas. And when they add in Cholula Original Hot Sauce, the recipe definitely starts packing some heat. Here's their take on the Rhode Island Chorizo Sandwich — it's most definitely a two-hand sandwich.

The Process

In a heavy-bottomed cast-iron pot, cook the chorizo over medium heat until browned.

Add cumin and cook for 1 minute.

Add bell peppers and onions and cook until soft, then add the garlic. Cook two to three minutes until the garlic has browned.

Add tomatoes and Cholula Original Hot Sauce, and stir thoroughly.

Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 30 minutes.

Slice the hero rolls in half to make the sandwich.

Top with kale, chorizo, banana peppers, olives, provolone cheese, and Cholula Original Hot Sauce as desired.
