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.

  1. WOW! I don’t crave burgers usually, but this looks just phenomenal from the seasonings to the avocado/tomato topping. I’ve never had chorizo, but it looks really yummy!

    • 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!
