Choripan is a sandwich very popular in Argentina that is usually made with grilled chorizo, split in the middle, and served on crusty bread with chimichurri sauce. Chimichurri is a green sauce originally from Argentina, although there are other variations throughout Latin America. I usually make the Colombian version of this sauce which also includes cilantro. This sauce is tangy, spicy, full of garlic and herbs and is absolutely delicious!
- 1 garlic clove peeled
- 1 cup fresh parsley
- ½ cup fresh cilantro
- ¼ cup chopped green onions
- 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- Salt and pepper
- 1 FlatOut Foldit®
- 2 chorizos cooked
- 2 to mato slices
- 1 avocado mashed
- To make the chimichurri sauce: add all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until all combines. Set aside.
- Assemble: Place the lettuce, tomato slice and one cooked chorizo on the Flatout Foldit® Artisan Flatbread. Top with mashed avocado and chimichurri sauce. Cover with the top half of the bread.
Last week I was craving a Choripan and since I had Flatout breads at home, I thought it would be a great idea to make a sandwich with the traditional Choripan filling, but using Flatout Foldit® Artisan Flatbread. I added lettuce, tomato and avocado to the sandwich and the result was amazing! The sandwich had a perfect balance of flavors and textures.
They’re great for any occasion, but if you have a Father’s day or graduation party coming up this Summer, this Choripan sandwich should make a wonderful addition to the menu. Don’t forget some extra chimichurri sauce on the side. You can never have enough of that awesomeness! Also, to make this recipe even more convenient, you can make the chimichurri sauce the day before and store it in the fridge.
I love having Flatout Flatbreads in my pantry, they are both versatile and delicious. Have a look at the Flatout site and learn more about their other flavors and where to find their products.

I was just in Argentina and had a few of these. I have not seen this bread before. Not visited in a while and I am sorry....looks fantastic...wish I had some.

Thank you Erica for such a wonderful recipe. My mouth was watering when I saw it, so I went straight to the store to get the Argentinean sausage. I used sandwich thins that I had at hand, and the choripan was absolutely fabulous. The chimichurri sauce is fantastic! My husband couldn't be happier. I will definitely make it again!
