Charizo Burgers

CILANTRO MAYO

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

kosher salt and black pepper

BURGERS

1 lb ground chuck

½ lb fresh chorizo

One 4-oz can diced green chiles, undrained

Kosher salt and black pepper

2 Tbsp. olive oil

2 Tbsp. salted butter

4 large eggs

4 burger buns, toasted

4 large lettuce leaves

1 large tomato, thinly sliced

8 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked

to crisp and broken in half

Directions

1. Make the cilantro mayo: in a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste.

2. Now it’s time for the burgers! In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, chorizo, green Chiles, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. And stir until well mixed.

3. Form the meat mixture into patties a little wider than a burger bun. Heat a cast-ironskillet over medium heat and drizzle in the olive oil. Heat a separate nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and add the butter.

5. Put the patties in the cast-iron skillet and press them down slightly as they start cooking on the first side.

6. Crack the eggs into the nonstick skillet and sprinkle on salt and pepper to taste. Let the eggs continue to cook.

7. Back to the burgers! After they have cooked for about five minutes on the first side, flip them over and let them cook until completely cooked through, another 4 minutes.

8. Remove the eggs from the heat when the whites are set but the yolks are still soft. Set aside.

9. Time to build the burgers! For each burger, spread a generous amount of the cilantro mayo on both sides of the buns.

10. Set a burger on the bottom half of the bun, then pile the lettuce, tomatoes, and bacon on the top half. Set a fried egg on top of the burger patty.
