Notes

You can add the usual lettuce and tomato if you want but when I eat chorizo just want to taste it and not bother with the vegetable distractions.  Usual burgers have 20% fat; the chorizo is the fat in the burger and adds a spicy seasoned punch, along with a healthy bright red greasy drip down your chin while eating.  They may say that everything tastes better with bacon, but I think Mexican chorizo elevates all.
