El Che sells packs of Argentine-style chorizo, made by the team at Tempesta Market. More like Italian sausage than dry Spanish chorizo or the looser Mexican version, these links are all-pork and garlic-forward. Grill one over a medium fire until browned (6 to 8 minutes), then split it down the middle and grill the cut side for another 4 minutes or so. $12 for four links

Manion recommends the crusty rolls from Guatelinda Bakery (3149 W. Diversey Ave., Logan Square). Split the roll, slather it with the condiments, and tuck the chorizo inside. Buen provecho!
