  • 2 pounds skirt steak
  • Olive oil for brushing the steak
  • Kosher or sea salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 6 Argentinian chorizo sausages
  • 6 telera or bolillo breads cut in half
  • 1 cup Frijoles con Veneno
  • 1 ripe avocado halved, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 1 batch Chimichurri Mexa

To Prepare

  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Clean the grill grates by rubbing them with half or a quarter of a white onion. Brush the skirt steak with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Once the grill is hot, add the skirt steak. Cook for about 4 minutes per side for medium, or more or less depending on desired doneness. Once cooked, transfer to a chopping board and cover with aluminum foil until ready to slice.
  • Place the chorizos on the cooler sides of the grill, or on the second level of indirect cooking if your grill has one, and cook them for about 15 minutes, turning a couple times in between. Remove when ready.
  • When ready to make the tortas, cut the skirt steak into strips of about 2 inches, then slice each of the strips into thin pieces against the grain and set aside. Slice the chorizos in half from tip to tip.
  • Place the bread on the grill for about a minute per side. Spread a couple tablespoons of the Frijoles con Veneno on the bottom half, top with a generous amount of the skirt steak and a sliced chorizo. Garnish with slices of avocado and copious amounts of Chimichurri Mexa.

    I can’t wait to make these and then watch The Perfect Game with my son, again! If you haven’t watched that movie, it’s a MUST. It’s about a little sandlot baseball team in Monterrey. They go on to become an official Little League team and WIN the LL World Series. One of the players went back to Monterrey and built the stadium. Such a cool story. I hope to visit one day.

    I love me some choripan and I really like your spin on it where you add skirt steak, avocado, frijoles, and chimichurri sauce on a bolio. I need to try this out on the weekend when I go to watch Mexico vs Brazil.

    Vamos Vamos!!!
