Chicken Chorizo Burgers with Avocado Lime Mayo



For burgers:

  • 1lb chicken, roughly chopped into pieces
  • 1/2lb chorizo, casings removed (if necessary)*
  • 1 jalapeno, seeds and ribs removed, minced
  • 1/4tsp salt
  • 1/4tsp pepper
  • Buns*, tomato, cheese*, lettuce, or other desired toppings

For Avocado Lime Mayo

  • 1/3c mayonnaise (I use olive oil mayo)
  • ½ medium ripe avocado
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4tsp salt
  • 1/4c cilantro


For burgers:

  1. In a food processor, combine chicken, chorizo, jalapeno, salt, and pepper, and pulse with the steel blade until well combined and meat is ground together. Form into 12 slider-sized patties or 6 burger-sized patties. Cook in a pan or grill for about 5 minutes per side or till cooked through. Serve on buns with desired toppings.

For mayo:

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients and pulse until well combined. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. (This spread can be made ahead—the lime juice will keep the mixture from browning).


*For gluten free version: be sure your chorizo is gluten free and use a gluten free bun. For dairy free, skip the cheese.
