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.
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
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).
Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium high heat.
Grill the chorizo sausages, turning occasionally, until they are browned and cooked though, about 15 minutes.
Place a sausage in each of the buns and garnish with arugula and red pepper relish.
