Mushroom Cap Chorizo Burger


8 large Portobello mushroom caps, wiped clean with a paper towel
1 tablespoon oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 pound chorizo
1 pound hamburger
1 egg
½ onion, diced
4 strips bacon, cooked and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons cilantro
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon granulated garlic
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon chili powder
Cheese on top, optional


Preheat oven to 380°F.
Remove the stems on the Portobello mushroom caps. Using a spoon, scrape the gills out (see above picture). Brush the whole cap with oil (top and bottom). Season with a little salt and pepper. Place them gill side up on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the chorizo, beef and the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Do not overwork. Shape the meat into 8 hamburger patties.
Take the caps out of the oven and lay a hamburger patty on top of each mushroom cap. Bake for 20 minutes (if you are using cheese, place it on the patty 5 minutes before they are done, so the cheese can melt). Enjoy!
