Happy Memorial Day!! Charlie and I spent the weekend doing a whole lot of absolutely nada. We needed it. We've both been going and going so it was time for a little RnR. We work hard, party harder, and relax the hardest. I'm either going 500 miles per hour or I'm drooling on my pillow.
Anyway, Fiesta Burgers...yes please. I almost forgot to post about this. Charlie and I made these last weekend and they were so good I actually erased part of my brain. Spicy, cheesy, crunchy, creamy...all the things that make a wonderful burg.
We started off with equal parts (1 lb) each of ground beef and ground chorizo.
Charlie added some of his famous house rub (1 part brown sugar, 1/2 part chili powder, 1/2 part paprika, 1/4 part cumin, 1/2 part kosher salt, 1/4 part garlic powder, 1/4 part pepper). Don't worry - I'll do a full post on that later.
I wanted to make a cool avocado spread to balance some of the spice. A smashed up some avocado, lime juice, a pinch of the house rub, as well as some sour cream to smooth things out. No recipe here, just wing it.
Charlie made four giant burgers. This is what happens when I leave him alone for more then 5 seconds.
Mmmmm flame broiled baby. I went sans cheese for mine, but Charlie added some oooooey gooey pepper jack cheese for an additional little kick.
For a little crunch we added a thick slice of red onion...
Oh hello there...
These burgers were AWESOME. I'm excited to try some new burger recipes this summer. Have any favorites out there? I'm thinking a Vietnamese pork burger, or a turkey pot sticker burger next...TBD.
