Treasures of Colombia: Hamburguesa con Chorizo (Colombian Street Food)

What is a Hamburger?

To me the name is quite misleading, quite ironic because most hamburgers do not include ham as the name suggests…I can’t recall eating a Hamburger that had ham. (Food for Thought).

Treasures of Colombia: Hamburguesa con Chorizo (Colombian Street Food)

By: Stacey-Ann Smith.

The Hamburger is a comfort food/fast food/junk food as it is lovingly called. It is a circular sandwich that is made up of:

  1. Ground / minced beef
  2. Lettuce
  3. Tomato
  4. Onion
  5. Pickles
  6. Cheese
  7. Mustard
  8. Mayonnaise
  9. Ketchup
  10. Relish

I visited a particular restaurant in the Primavera Urbana Mall called “Don Jediondo” and they have a special hamburger, Chorizo Hamburger, that I really enjoy.

Hamburguesa con Chorizo

It has a unique taste because of an unusual ingredient…a huge chorizo that is placed on top of the patty (mincemeat); the chorizo brings an exotic taste because of its distinctive ingredients.

The chorizo is a type of sausage that is stuffed with pork and other seasonings and spices. I really like this hamburger because I am a sausage lover; so when making your homemade hamburger you can add sausages to enhance the flavor…be innovative!
