Topped with red pepper and onion relish, grilled chorizo hot dogs are an upgrade on standard hot dogs. They’re spicy and great for cookouts.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion, diced small
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and diced small
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 4 chorizo sausages, either lamb or pork
  • 4 hot dog buns
  • 1 handful arugula

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 3-5 minutes until the onion begins to soften. Add the red pepper and continue cooking for another 3 minutes until the peppers have softened. Add the sugar, salt, pepper and vinegar and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Set aside. (Note: The relish can be made up to 3 days in advance. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator).
  2. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium high heat.
  3. Grill the chorizo sausages, turning occasionally, until they are browned and cooked though, about 15 minutes.
  4. Place a sausage in each of the buns and garnish with arugula and red pepper relish.
