  • 1 pound mixed chiles, such as habanero, finger, and at least 1 jalapeno
  • 6 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 3 to 4 pounds linked (sweet and/or hot) or coiled Italian sausages
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Grill chiles and tomatoes directly on grates set over a campfire or on a medium-high grill, turning, until charred and softened, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Reserve tomatoes and 1 jalapeno for relish. (Reserve 2 jalapenos for a spicier relish.)

  2. Grill sausages directly on grates, turning, until cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, chop charred tomatoes and reserved jalapeno; transfer to a bowl. Stir in garlic, vinegar, and sugar. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chiles and sausages with charred tomato relish, sandwiched with skillet breads.
