Memorial Day Cook Off Winner!

Drum roll please..........

The winner was Ashley's Chicken Chorizo Burger with Avocado Mayo! The burger was so tender and good, with great flavors. It will be repeated often this summer!


First you need to make the mayo....

1/3 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 ripe peeled avocado, seeded

To prepare mayonnaise, combine first 5 ingredients in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until combined. Cover and chill mayonnaise mixture. This gives the mayo time to absorb all the flavors.

Then make the burgers...

1/2 pound Spanish chorizo sausage
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 (6-inch) corn tortillas, torn into bite-sized pieces
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, coarsely chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
Cooking spray

To prepare burgers, remove casings from sausage. Place sausage, salt, tortillas, chicken, and jalapeño in food processor; process 30 seconds or until mixture is coarsely ground. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

Place patties on a grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 7 minutes on each side or until done.

To serve, you can lightly toast an onion bun, and layer, tomato, lettuce, and avocado mayo on the sandwich. Yum.

All the burgers...
