So I had this idea in my head to make chorizo burgers of some kind for a few weeks now. Once I finally had all the ingredients in front of me, it was really just a matter of choice: Do I make big ol' burgers out of these, are do I go for the more bite size fun sliders? After talking to Chris, the decision was easily made - sliders it would be.
Now our sliders were simple, a small slice of tomato, lettuce, a little cheese. But, the piéce de résistance was the chipotle mayo. It complemented the spice of the chorizo extremely well. It was almost as if they were born to be together!
I like to use Hawaiian sweet bread rolls for our sliders, but you can use your favorite slider roll, it's not going to matter, you just need to make these. There, I said it :)
Chorizo Sliders with Chipotle Mayonnaise
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
3/4 lb pork chorizo
1/2 lb ground pork
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon chipotle puree
1/2 teaspoon lime juice
In a large bowl, mix together the chorizo and ground pork until very well combined. From small patties - I made about 15 patties, approximately 3-inches in diameter. No need to season these, the chorizo has plenty of flavor, trust me.
In a small bowl, mix together the mayo, chipotle puree, and lime juice. Set aside.
Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Place chorizo patties directly over the fire and grill about 5-6 minutes per side. Top with cheese and grill until cheese is melted. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 4 minutes. Build your slider by slathering both sides of the buns with the chipotle may, top with slider, lettuce, and tomato. Enjoy!
