Yes, it is a good idea, Andy. I thought about that too,even went on Internet to look up what spices to use, but did not have enough time to really find anything.

Yes, I do eat turkey.

GG, I posted this on the dinner thread too but I wanted to be sure you see it...

I had one of the most delicious hamburgers I've ever eaten. The meat patty was 60% beef chuck and 40% chorizo. It was on a chibatta bun with jack cheese, red onion, and avocado.
I never would have thought of doing that but it was a spectacular combo for a hamburger. I'll sure be doing that at home sometime.

Oh, I am so going to make those burgers. I love ciabatta bread and those fixin's, but have never had them with chorizo mixed in with the beef. That's gotta be over the top good.

Wonderful Kayelle!..I'll be making those. Will have to make my own chorizo, as I have not been able to find any around here.

You can do the same thing with fresh bulk Andouille (raw, unsmoked). Makes a good Cajun burger.

What's the difference between Mexican Chorizo and Louisiana Andouille sausage?

Not too surprised. I know when I lived in Montana, there was very little in the way of any kind of ethnic foods available. Even Taco Bell didn't exist yet (not even a McDonald's in Great Falls until after I left in 1973). We had one little restaurant called The Treat that had great tacos - the only Mexican food in town. But finding any kind of sausage other than breakfast sausage or hot dogs in the grocery store was unlikely.

Such foods are mostly hit and miss around here too. Since our only real supermarket is Walmart, we are captive to to the mostly workaday products they carry. I usually try to stock up on my occasional trips down to Denver.
