A mainstay of Rhode Island. Known as dynamites or a torpedo. It’s a specific kind of sandwich, eaten on a roll. That may sound like a Sloppy Joe, but whatever you call it, it’s one tasty sandwich. Kicked up a notch with Portuguese hotness. Chouriço and 3 hot peppers make this a 3 Alarm hot and spicy sandwich that will keep you coming back for more. Can you handle the heat! So Delicious! Cooks right in your crock pot.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground chouriço
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (remove the seeds and inside white veins)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes, with liquid
  • ½ tablespoon tomato paste mixed in ¼ cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red hot pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  1. Brown ground beef and drain to remove grease. You do not need to brown chouriço.
  2. Add beef and all other ingredients to Crock Pot, mix well.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
  4. Serve on your favorite roll.
