You'll love these Tasty Mexican Sausages in a bun

Top Review by Bergy

This was a very tasty Chihuahua. I was lucky to find a new sausage maker at our Farmers Market and his specialty is Mexican Chorizo - they were so good. Too big for a hot dog bun so I used a Portuguese roll. I love the onions carmelized so I put them in the pan before the sausagea and added some sliced mushrooms.Just nice heat (Ilike hot) This recipe would also be great wrapped in a corn tortilla Thanks Norm Cooks for a recipe that I will be making again

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb johnsonville chorizo sausage
  • 5 hot dog buns
  • 12 lb shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 10 tablespoons salsa
  • 1 sliced onion


  1. Prepare your Sausages grilled, baked, broiled, on your outdoor grill, or pan-fried. A 1 lb package will contain 5 sausages. I cooked mine with the onion slices on my George Foreman Indoor Grill.
  2. Warm up the grill for 5 minutes with the onions inside. Always spray your indoor grill with Pam prior to the warm-up period.
  3. Line the sausages up across the grates so you get grill marks on them. Close the grill and set your timer for 5 minutes.
  4. While the Sausages are cooking, spread your hot dogs bun, sprinkle a layer of shredded cheese inside, then insert them in your toaster oven until the cheese is slightly melted.
  5. Insert your cooked Chorizo Chihuahua Dogs into each bun on top of the bed of melted cheese. Top with your sliced onions and 2 tablespoons or more of your favorite salsa. You can also top with chili or other toppings of your own choosing.
