Spice up your lunch or dinner with robust Spanish flavors. In place of standard hot dogs, grill up chicken chorizo sausages, and top them with a classic sauce made from cilantro, sherry vinegar, and spices. If you can’t find chicken chorizo, you can substitute another type of chicken sausage—chipotle sausages or Italian sausages would be delicious. Be sure to blot the red peppers with a paper towel to dry them off so that they don’t sog out the buns.
