Santa Fe Chorizo Burger

June 1, 2010

June is Burger Extravaganza Month here at Foodo.
You can also check out all of our burgers HERE

~ Mary ~

If you’re a fan on Foodo’s Facebook page, you’ll know just how excited I’ve been about this month!  Without further fanfare, let’s get this Burger PARTY started with a BANG and an AMAZING burger.  Not too difficult and delivers like it came from the heavens of burger Nirvana itself!  To quote John in his Rico Suave voice: “Que bueno, Que Rico!” it translates to: “Rich & Smooth!”.





This piece of awesomeness came from a recent visit to New Mexico. We didn’t have anything like it,  I was just inspired by the local foods.  We have ourselves an original here!  Alert the press please 😉  We’re also extremely fortunate that our beloved A&G grocery store carries freshly made chorizo, a true treat to behold!

I also learned about Old Pawn or Dead Pawn on that trip.  May not sound exciting to you, but I found it fascinating and now have a penchant for said jewelry with large hunks of turquoise.  Instead of trying to explain what it is exactly, I will send you here.  Enjoy a bit of education along with your burger. 😉





One year ago: Goat Cheese and Red Pepper Panini, Strawberry Butter Cake



Okay, no more meandering off on tangents,  let’s get down to business.  This burger is very straight forward especially if you don’t make the sauce, which I won’t be including next time.  It was nice, but definitely NOT necessary.



Santa Fe Chorizo Burger




1 Pound Angus Ground Beef

1 Pound Fresh Chorizo  casing removed

2 Tbsp Minced Garlic

Handful Chopped Parsley

Salt & Pepper to Taste

Mix together, do not over-handle meat.  Make into 4-6 patties.

Grill over medium-high until chorizo is cooked through.




1/2 Cup Mayonnaise

1/4 Cup Fresh Cilantro chopped

2 Tbsp Green Diced Chile – canned

Juice of 1 Lime

Kosher Salt to Taste




2 Avocados sliced

4-6 slices Monterey Jack Cheese

2 Red Peppers roasted, peeled and sliced

4-6 Nice Burger Buns of Choice

Assemble as demonstrated in photo.  We felt the sauce was good, but not entirely necessary because these burgers were so juicy and packed with flavor.

    Just beautiful:) Makes me, almost, wish I ate meat. I will try the rest with maybe a nice large portabella:) Well I guess the guys will want the meat so will have to make it both ways. And I love the sauce!
