Let's Make It
Place chiles in small saucepan. Add enough water to cover chiles. Bring to boil; cook on medium heat 10 min. or until chiles are tender. Meanwhile, cook potatoes and chorizo in large skillet on medium heat 12 min. or until potatoes are tender and chorizo is done, stirring occasionally; drain.
Drain chiles; place in blender. Add onions, garlic, water and 2 Tbsp. dressing; blend until smooth. Strain sauce. Fill buns with meat mixture.
Heat remaining dressing in same skillet on medium-low heat. Stir in 1/4 cup of the sauce. Add sandwiches; cook 3 min. Brush lightly with some of the remaining sauce; turn sandwiches over. Cook 3 to 5 min. or until sauce is absorbed and both sides of sandwiches are lightly toasted, brushing occasionally with remaining sauce. Serve topped with lettuce and sour cream.

Sauce can be made ahead of time. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator up to 3 days. Or, place in freezer-weight container and store in freezer up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator before using.
Guajillo chiles are dried chiles with a deep burnished red color. Their tough outer peel requires them to be soaked longer than most other dried chiles before using as desired. Since these chiles can be quite hot, a guajillo chile sauce is frequently cooked with meat.
