Spanglish Burger

Just like its name suggests, this burger is the result of a tribute to two important cultures in the United States: The American and the Hispanic-Spanish cultures. The burger reflects this blending together by the use of ingredients that represent the different cultures: Manchego cheese from Spain, Chorizo from Spain and Latin America, and guacamole and jalapeños from Latin America top the All-American burger. The result is a fiesta of flavor!

Ingredients 

4 1/2 oz of Chorizo chopped
1 onion diced
1 cup diced mushrooms
3 lbs ground sirloin
1 1/2 teaspoons of oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons of garlic salt
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt
Head of lettuce
3 large tomatoes
3 ripe avocados
6 teaspoons of lemon juice
2 tablespoons of salt
1 jalapeño finely chopped
1 onion finely chopped
4 sprigs of cilantro
6 thick slices of Manchego cheese
6 rolls of choice

Instructions 

In a large mixing bowl combine the ingredients for the burger in the following order:
4 1/2 oz of Chorizo chopped
1 onion diced
1 cup of diced mushrooms
3 lbs ground sirloin
1 1/2 teaspoons of oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons of garlic salt
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt
Mix until well-combined. Divide the mixture into 6 half (1/2) lb burgers.

Grilling the burger: Heat the gas grill to 450 degrees F. Grill the burger for 4 minutes on each side (total of 8 minutes). Do not open the grill to check the meat since this will lose heat. Add slice of Manchego cheese to be melted. Let the burgers rest on the upper rack for 2 minutes.

Next, make the guacamole. In a medium size mixing bowl: De-pit and mash 3 ripe avocados. Add the following ingredient in the following order:
6 teaspoons of lemon juice
2 tablespoons of salt
1 jalapeño finely chopped
1 onion finely chopped
4 sprigs of cilantro
Combine the ingredients until thoroughly mixed. The guacamole should be creamy with some chunkiness. Divide evenly into 6 portions.

Assembling the burger: Place each burger on a roll. Next, add one portion of guacamole to each burger. Add a large slice of tomato and 1 lettuce leaf on top of the burger, and to finish, add the top of the roll. Enjoy!
