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 mouth...like 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 vegetarian...in 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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

  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!
