Chorizo Burger with Blue Cheese Chipotle Sauce

The chorizo and blue cheese chipotle sauce give this burger a lot a flavor and a little kick. Toped with tomato and avocado; simply mouthwatering.  This recipe is easy to make and after tasting this recipe bursting with sabor your regular burgers will seem boring.

Last night when my husband asked me for hamburgers, AGAIN I decided I would try something new.  I don’t know what it is about guys and burgers but sometimes when we eat out and my husband insists in ordering a hamburger I really wonder if that beef patty craving might just be written into his DNA.

I on the other hand love to try new things.  I am always looking for new recipes and experimenting in the kitchen combining ingredients and flavors.  So when my husband asked when I was going to make burgers my mind started spinning thinking of what new hamburger I might come up with this time.  I think he was a little worried because no matter how much he liked the last burger I made he knows I will probably not repeat the same recipe and that there is a risk, although small ;), that this one might not be as good as the last one.

As I walked through the Latino foods isle a package of Goya red chorizos caught my eye.  Chorizo burgers! Perfect!    The blue cheese chipotle sauce I had done before but this time I forgot the can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce and I had to improvise using  a southwest chipotle seasoning blend I had at home.

      That is exactly what my husband was saying tonight as he read this post. I think the only post he’s read on my blog that I didn’t ask him to read. He said “we haven’t had these for a while” …. I just made them last week! LOL!
