2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

2 medium red bell peppers, seeded and sliced into thin strips

1 cup onion sliced into half-moons

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 pound cooked shredded chicken

1 cup diced chorizo, andouille, or other cooked spicy sausage

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

4 long rolls (submarine or hoagie rolls)


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell peppers and onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the vegetables from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the sausage and vinegar and cook for 1 minute to heat through.
  3. Using tongs, arrange the chicken mixture on the open rolls, top with the fried peppers and serve.
