Guacamole Stuffed Chorizo Burgers

That was a mouthful. Quite literally. Though these burgers will rock your socks off, I would recommend eating them in bites...rather than trying to stuff the whole damn thing in your I may or may not have tried...unsuccessfully...but unregretfully.

Who doesn't love chorizo? Probably a lot of people, but the reasoning behind it is unclear. Unless you are a vegan or which case you probably shouldn't even be on this meat-infested blog. Anyways, I made these for my brother and his main squeeze and they were a hit! I think next time I make them, I'll pull a PaleOMG and put pineapple in them as well.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb chorizo
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/4 yellow onion, diced
  • Juice of a lime
  • Onion powder to taste


  1. Combine the ground beef, chorizo, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper. Mix well (get down and dirty and use your hands for best results).
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, remove the meat of the avocado and add onion, lime juice, onion powder and more salt and pepper. Mash it all up to create a chunky, glorious batch of guacamole.
  3. Over a large sheet of paper towel, form 12 thin patties from the meat mixture and flatten them out.
  4. Scoop equal parts of your guacamole on top of 6 of the patties (you may have leftover guacamole...but I have no doubt you'll find a way to eat it). Put the the remaining 6 patties on top of the guacamole patties and pinch meat around the edges to close in the guacamole.
  5. In a lightly oiled skillet, cook the burgers about 4-5 minutes per side on medium-high heat.
  6. Serve with some sweet potato fries!
