    Chorizo Burger with Guacamole & Mango Salsa


    The husband and I are and have always been a big fan of chorizo, Spanish or Mexican. Whenever I make anything with chorizo, the husband always gives me the ooooo and the aaaahs. When the husband saw that I made him a burger, complete with Bacon & Cheese Fries, he was grinning non-stop from ear to ear. And when he found out that it was not just any burger, but chorizo burger, I scored major brownie points!

    It’s easy to understand why Chorizo will easily win the hearts of many who tried it. The sausage calls for variety of  spices like garlic, ground chillies, coriander, cumin, cinnamon, oregano, paprika, vinegar, pepper, salt, etc. With that much spices added to it, no wonder it’s so darn flavourful!

    I usually cook with the cured Spanish chorizo, the dry kind. I like to use it as a base flavour like how one would cook bacon to start off a dish. I also use it a lot for breakfast hash. So when I was actually asking myself why in the world have I not made chorizo burgers before?! So my search for raw Mexican chorizo sausage started. Because I’m lazy efficient, I let google do the searching for me instead or going around Singapore searching for a grocer that carries raw chorizo. Didn’t take me long to find it! lol! 

    If you are wondering the about the differences between the Spanish and Mexican chorizo, the biggest difference is that the Mexican chorizo is usually sold raw and uncooked, whereas the Spanish chorizo is cured. I have to stress again, this recipe calls for raw chorizo, so get the one that’s uncooked, as you will need to remove the meat from the casing to form into patties. You can get raw chorizo from better grocers like huber’s etc. I got mine from Go Fresh, because they deliver and I order some of my meats from them as well. Enough with the yakking, let’s get down to the cooking!

    • Mash your avocados and mix in all the other ingredients.
    • Set aside until you are ready to build your burger.

    Burger Patties

    • In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
    • Shape into 4 patties, use your thumb to press a little indentation in the middle of your patty.
    • Then grill on each side for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through.

    Assembling burger

    • Build your burger with generous serving of guacamole, patty, and top with mango salsa.

    Try not to make your guacamole too early as your avocados will oxidise and turn brown.
    If you are making ahead of time, place a seed into your guacamole mix, and cover bowl tightly with cling wrap.
