Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound chorizo
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground pork
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 ripe avocado, thinly sliced
  • fresh pineapple slices
  • Store-bought pico de gallo or chunky salsa
  • 6 soft sandwich rolls

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to high heat. In a large bowl, combine the chorizo, pork, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt, thyme and oregano. Work the chorizo-pork mixture through.
  • Divide the mixture into 6 portions, then shape them into patties. Carefully slice the pineapple into 1/2 inch rounds. Remove the avocado from the peel, then slice 1/4 inch thick.
  • Grill the patties 3 minutes per side. Next, grill the pineapple slices for 2 minutes per side. Toast the buns on the grill for 1 minute.
  • To assemble: place the patty on the bottom bun, followed by the pineapple, avocado slices, and the salsa on top. Cover with the bun and enjoy!

Notes

I like to save time on this recipe by buying pre-made fresh salsa and pre-cut fresh pineapple. If you want to make your own salsa and trim your own pineapple, knock yourself out!
