Chipotle Avocado Spread

  • 2 ripe large Hass Avocados, peeled, pitted, and chopped
  • 4 tbsp sour cream
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

Grilled Red Onions

  • 2 small red onions

Burger Patties

  • 1.5 lbs ground bison
  • 0.5 lbs chorizo, casing discarded
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 6 slices of sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 slices of tomato
  • 6 kaiser rolls


1. Prepare a medium hot fire in charcoal grill with a cover or preheat a gas grill to medium-high heat.

2. To prepare the spread, combine the avocados, sour cream, cilantro, garlic, chipotle peppers,

lime juice and salt in food processor and pulse until well blended. Refrigerate until serving.

3. To prepare the grilled onions, slice the onions into rings. Do not separate the rings at this time.

Place the slices on a well-oiled grill and grill for 5 minutes flipping the onions half way through

the cooking process. Remove from grill and set aside.

4. To make the burger patties, combine the bison, chorizo, salsa, cilantro, salt and pepper in a

bowl. Handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, thoroughly mix the

ingredients. Divide the mixture into 6 equal pieces and form into patties keeping the center of

the patties thinner than the edges. On a well-oiled grill, cook the patties until done preference,

5-7 minutes per side. In the last few minutes of cooking, add the cheese to melt.

5. To assemble your burger, place your patty on the bottom half of the bun topping with the

pickled, grilled onions, and fresh tomato. Place spread on top bun and place on top of the

burger. Serve and enjoy!
