This week, the #SundaySupper tastemakers are gearing up for Father’s Day, bringing you some of the favorite foods for the special fathers in our lives.

When my husband became a father three and a half years ago, I couldn’t have imagined how much of a natural he’d be. I still remember looking over at him – this big guy – with this teeny baby girl in purple curled up on half of his arm as we’d watch tv in the evening. Typical new parents, we didn’t want to put her down. Every day, he continues to amaze me with how wonderful he is as a father to our two children – playing with them, helping them learn, and teaching them lessons. He has a patience that I’ll never have (and I can only hope that at least one of our children will inherit that from him!).

Turkey Chorizo Burgers

And so, in honor of this week’s theme, I chose to make two of my hubby’s favorites – burgers and guac. He’s a simple man, and is generally happy with a large, well-cooked burger. I can usually pick out the burger he’ll order when we go out. If there’s one with pineapple or guacamole, that’s usually it. So a few weeks ago, I dug out an old favorite. The chorizo gives this burger a lot of flavor, which pairs well with the subtle guacamole. I used my own guacamole recipe instead of the one in the recipe

You’ll definitely have leftover guac, so feel free to halve the guacamole recipe or have some tortilla chips on hand.

Turkey Chorizo Burgers with Guacamole

Burgers adapted from Fine Cooking
Guacamole by Books n’ Cooks

Makes enough for 5 burgers, with guac leftover

Ingredients for the Burgers:

  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 lb. ground spicy chorizo
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • Burger buns or English Muffins
  • tomato & onion slices (optional, for serving)

Ingredients for the Guacamole:

  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice

Make the Burgers: In a large mixing bowl, add turkey, chorizo, and salt. Use clean hands to work the mixture, trying not to over mix. Form into 1-inch thick patties, using a finger to indent middle slightly.

Grill, flipping after 5 minutes, until center registers 165F – about 10 minutes total.

Make the Guacamole: While burgers are cooking, make the guac. Remove flesh from avocados, keeping 1-2 pits on the side. Lightly mash avocado with a fork. Add in salt, pepper, garlic powder, and lime juice. Continue to mash until desired consistency. Return pit(s) to guacamole, to help the guacamole from browning.

Serve burgers on burger buns or English muffins (toasted, if desired), topped with guacamole, tomato, and onion.
