Sloppy Worm Sandwiches for Halloween #SundaySupper





I am so happy to be hosting the Trick-or-Treat #SundaySupper Halloween Party today!  It's like I finally get to host the Halloween party of my dreams.   I've loved Halloween since I was a little kid.  Dressing up as whatever TV or movie character I idolized at the moment, going to all the fun Halloween festivals and haunted houses, and trick-or-treating through the neighborhood with my pillowcase full of candy.

It's because of these fond memories that I continue to celebrate Halloween with my kiddies, here in Small Town, Mexico.  My kiddies love Halloween just as much as I do, even though they've never experienced a real Halloween in the States.  As soon as October 1st rolls around, the kiddies are the first to bring out the few Halloween decorations I have left.  And the only thing they want to talk about all month long is what they're going to dress up as for Halloween.  Of course, each of the kiddies changes their mind at least a dozen times.

One of our family Halloween traditions, is to watch our favorite family friendly Halloween movies, like "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown",  the week leading up to Halloween, to help get us in the mood.  Another family tradition is to eat fun Halloween themed foods, with super spooky names like Monster Mash and Spicy Vampire Bat Wings.

One of the kiddies' favorite Halloween dishes is Sloppy Worm Sandwiches.  Now, I know I've shared an exotic dish or two here in my Cocina, but I assure you, I've NEVER cooked with real worms.  The "worms" in these sandwiches are actually salchichas (hot dog sausages), that are cut into quarters to resemble worms.  Clever, right?

So, if you're looking for a fun Halloween dish to feed your little monsters this Halloween, these Sloppy Worm Sandwiches are slimy, yet very satisfying!

What are your family's Halloween traditions?


Sloppy Worm Sandwiches
(Inspired by Taste of Home magazine)

Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds salchichas (hot dog sausages) 
  • 3 roma tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 serrano chilies, finely chopped (optional) 
  • 1-1/2 cups bottled BBQ sauce
  • Hot dog buns
  • Shredded lettuce (optional) 

Directions:
Cut each salchicha into quarters, lengthwise.  In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium heat.  Add the salchichas and let cook until slightly brown.  Gently stir in the chopped tomato, onion, serrano chilies, and bottled BBQ sauce. (Important note: If you have little ones at home who aren't used to eating spicy food, please omit the serrano chilies. If you still want the flavor,  use chopped green bell peppers instead.)   Reduce heat to low.  Cover skillet and let simmer until the salchichas are soft and pliable.

Serve on toasted hot dog buns spread with mayonnaise or Mexican crema.  Enjoy!!!
