After CrossFitting for the past 3 years, I have learned the following:

  1. Nothing really ever gets easier. Movements get better, muscles get stronger, and the brain learns how to push through some of the pain, but it never actually gets easier. Blasphemy.
  2. Tall socks don’t actually protect your shins from box jump spills.
  3. Shin scars don’t go away.
  4. Taping your hands constantly doesn’t strengthen your calluses. Doing more pull ups does.
  5. I never will have soft hands.
  6. Guys with soft hands freak me out.
  7. Pants will never fit the same.
  8. No matter how much I squat, cellulite never goes away. NEVER
  9. Working out without a headband is awful. Super awful.
  10. Placing your box up against a wall doesn’t keep the box from moving while doing box jumps. It’s creates a blockade for your face to eat sh*t into when you trip on a box jump. Trust me on this one, I found out yesterday. And have the bump on my forehead to prove it. Stupidity at it’s finest.

Guess what? I was in three magazines recently! Those poor magazines.  WodTalk Magazine , BoxLife Magazine and Confluence Denver asked me some questions, and I answered. Which is frightening because I have no clue what I really said in any of them. You’ve read my blog, you know how random I am. Depending on my day, my state of mind, and what time of the month it is, my explanations on situations could always be different. Which is, once again, frightening.

Wanna see my cousin and I at her bridal shower? Of course you do, she’s good looking.

So I’ve figured something out. I’m not into bridal stuff. No offense Katie, I love you. And fully support your bride happiness. I’m just not into all the parties, all the gifts, all the tears, all that normal stuff that occurs pre-wedding. It doesn’t feel natural to me. Which is strange because I picked my wedding dress out in a magazine with my first boyfriend (Skyler) at the age of six, behind the tire swing. He then went on to chase me around the playground, while I screamed until I peed myself. My bladder control was less than stellar back in my child days. Long story short, our relationship didn’t last into my seventh year of life. Was it because of my small bladder? I’ll never know. However, my optimism for love lasted until about 21 years of age, then the white dress, bright flowers, and spending outrageous amounts of money on one day just seemed to lose its sparkle.

And no, I did not just admit to the age I lost my virginity at. Perve.

I just don’t think the big show is for me. And I like attention. I write a blog about myself for gosh sakes. But if I like someone enough to marry them, I don’t really want to do all that. I want to go somewhere tropical, wear minimal clothing, and make out with him. Friends should come so we can drink and eat on the beach. I do want a cake, but that’s a given. Who the hell doesn’t want a wedding cake? Oh I know who, those cupcake people. Ugh.

I love these freaking burgers. Like, LOVE.

Pineapple Stuffed Chorizo Burgers

0.0 rating
PREP 20 mins
COOK 20 mins
TOTAL 40 mins
Yields 4-5

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1 pound chorizo
  • 0.5 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 of a whole pineapple
  • 1 sweet potato or yam, thinly sliced
  • 2 avocados
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons bacon fat

DIRECTIONS :

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. First, get the pineapple ready. Cut the pineapple in half. Cut off the end, then slice the sides off (you are just trying to get rid of the hard skin). Once the skin is off, cut slices of the pineapple into ¼ inch slices (thin enough to place insides a burger). Use your knife to cut out a circle in the middle of your pineapple slice to remove the hard core. You will need 4-5 slices.
  3. Now place the thinly sliced sweet potatoes or yam in a bowl along with the thin pineapple. Coat with coconut oil and a sprinkle of salt. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, baking sure not to overlap. Put in oven to bake for 10-12 minutes, flipping half way through. The pineapple way cook a bit quicker and you may need to remove it before the sweet potatoes.
  4. While that is cooking, place the chorizo and ground beef in a bowl and mix well. Use the mixture to make 8 equal size balls. You could make 10 (to create 5 burgers) but they might not hold together as well. Flatten balls out into patties.
  5. Then you'll want to make the avocado topping. Cut avocados in half, remove pits, and use a spoon to scoop out the avocado. Place in a food processor along the the lime, lemon, cayenne pepper, and a bit of salt and pepper. Puree until smooth.
  6. Once the pineapple is done cooking, let cool then place on top of one of your patties, place the second patty on top and use your fingers to seal up the burger, pinching the edges a few times. The more you make sure it is closed up, the better they will stick together when you cook them. Repeat with all burgers. Salt both sides of your burgers.
  7. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add a couple tablespoons of bacon fat to the pan. Once the pan is extra hot, add the burgers to the pan, making sure not to crowd the pan so you get a nice crust on the burgers. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side.
  8. Once burgers have cooked on both sides, place in the oven either in your skillet or on a baking sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes.
  9. When burgers on done, place on top of a stack of sweet potato slices, then top with the avocado puree.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

    1. Or, what about homemade mayo instead of the avocado topping? It’s actually not too hard – search online for a recipe and use a paleo-friendly oil. Then just add some cayenne – no need for the additional citrus juice since it’s thinner than avocado and likely aready has some in it 🙂

  1. Chorizo makes everything better. I’ve got the men at my grocery trained to start making chorizo when I walk up to the counter. They usually only sell them inside the casing, which I never want. So I wear spandex and smile very sweetly and they do what I want. Win.

  2. Number one, these burgers sound fantastic and I love the huge sweet potato discs.

    Number two, I agree on the bridal stuff! I know girls who drool over engagement rings, know what dress they want, and have their weddings planned before their boyfriends have even said “hey nice to meet ya”.

    I’ve been Maid of Honor twice, to two great friends….but Im not that gushy, oh my god ITS YOUR WEDDING kind of girl….

    Thanks for writing this! Sometimes I felt like a nut for not being like that..

  3. These burgers look super yum! I’ve been really into pineapple and pork lately.

    Also — I totally agree on the cake thing. My wedding cake was one of three things I was super into about my wedding. (The other two being my husband and my dress.)

  4. I’ve been married for almost four years and I admit it…I didn’t really even enjoy my own wedding showers much!!! I am NOT the kind of girl that likes opening presents that people give me in front of them one by one (I hate when my fam does this at Christmas!) and I’m not very romantic. I’d rather go work out with my husband, have hott sex (sorry!), lay on the couch and watch movies, etc. than for him to buy me roses and flowers and take me to a fancy dinner. It’s just not me! Thankfully, it’s not him either. We had over 300 hundred people at our wedding and although we had a blast, I would have had just as much if not more fun at the beach with our closest friends and family. haha.

  5. Your recipes just keep getting better and better. I can’t even imagine what your cookbook has in store for all of us. So excited to get that. I am not a very creative cook on my own, but with your recipes I feel like a professional. Thank you for helping me change the way I eat so much easier and tastier!!!!

  6. I highly recommend a beach wedding with great food, open bar, and DJ 🙂 Not to be too awkward, but if you end up with a military dude the best place on Oahu is the Hale Koa military hotel – on the beach, gorgeous, and half the price of any other place in Waikiki!

    Plus I’m excited to try these burgers!!

  7. These look AMAZING!!! I just found your website the other day and I’m literally saving every single recipe. We’ve been eating paleo for about a year and a half and I definitely needed some new recipes. Thanks for posting these!

  8. These burgers sound amazing!! You are absolutely right about the knee socks! They do not save your shins…only soak up the blood and hide the previous bruises!! Stupid box jumps!

  9. 1. I HATE box jumps. I’ve been cross fitting for 3 years and I swear the fear just gets worse. I’ve regressed to the point where I can only do them if I stack up bumper plates. I’m like paralyzed with fear with the box because I’m so afraid to fall.

    2. My wedding cake was chocolate cake with peanut butter mouse and fresh banana filling. It was a pretty rad combo! But yeah other than that weddings really aren’t all they’re hyped up to be.

  10. 1. Juli, I absolutely love your blog and your recipes! I can soooo relate to you! Keep all the good food and stories coming, please.

    2. Weddings are so over-rated! Mine wasn’t that big or fancy, we got married outside next to the lake where we spent a lot of time while we were dating. It was still daunting, though. Too much stuff, too many people. I like the beach idea way better.

    3. Girls with calluses rock!

    1. I’m engaged and that’s what we’re doing. Getting married in the backyard and having a pig roast! We’re only inviting family so it should be a small shindig, but it’s amazing how much stuff there is to do to plan it anyway. Ugh!

      We’re in our late 30’s so I get to skip the shower. I don’t feel like it would be polite to ask people to shop for me when I am well established. So, no registry! One less thing to do!

      One girlfriend wants to have a bachelorette party for me… a chocolate tasting. I don’t think I’ll be able to turn that down 🙂

  11. I’m new to paleo and usually very picky about food, but I’m trying to branch out. What kind of Chorizo? I even googled it cause I didn’t know what it is…there are like 10 different kinds. Does it matter? Thanks!

  12. Ummmm this looks delicious!
    I read your posts almost everyday, or at least just look to see what the recipe is. I’m from Canada and just came to the states for a quick trip. I always hear you raving about Whole Foods, and ohhmaagawdddd I’m in love with that store!!

  13. Juli,
    Do you make your own chorizo or buy it? I usually buy it from my local carniceria (mexican meat market). I know it’s freshly made but I don’t know if the products they use are paleo friendly.

  14. I’ve only been crossfitting a year now, but have already learned everything on your list. Box jumps=eat shit. Every.time.

    Also, I made your sweet potato brownies last weekend, and yesterday when I went to get some, my husband had eaten the entire pan, and left me the smallest piece ever. So nice of him.

  15. Hey juli,
    I love your blog. I have a lot of trouble finding chorizo. What would you recommend, certain brands or things I should look for on the packaging?
    THanks!

  16. OMG you are hysterical! I found this website (which I am so thankful for!!) since I have just started working out a month ago. I have lost 9 pounds already!! I needed fresh, yummy paleo recipes. I have made several of your recipes and they are just delish! Your “rambling” just cracks me up and I can’t get enough! Thank you for posting your yummy foods!

  17. I am totally on board with the paleo thing but have yet to do crossfit. One of the main reasons is because box jumps scare the bejesus out of me. Your story didn’t make me feel any better 😉

  18. I love you Juli!!! Thank you for making the shower… and no offense taken!!! I am just excited you have agreed to be a part of our day!!!

    SOOOOO looking forward to all of the fun in MAY! 🙂 After a few adult beverages you will also enjoy it…. and your man will be there too! PERFECT!

    love you sister!

  19. The burgers look amazing! Your post about crossfit had me laughing. I really needed that too because I had my first on ramp class Monday night and class number 2 is tonight. I’ve always considered myself to be an athletic person but last night i found myself soaking in a bath of epsom salts for the first time…EVER! Today I can hardly move and I want to cry every time I have to go to the bathroom because I have to sit on the toilet. I’ve found myself praying all day long that we have to run or jump rope in class tonight…anything but those damn squats and burpees! At this point at my age, I’m just glad that I’m going to class number 2, it would be oh so easy to sit my ass on the couch with a big ol glass of red! Please keep all of your hilarious random posts coming…you never know who’s day you might make or who you might motivate to push through the pain of CF and stay off the couch 🙂

  20. Ah, you have jazzed my non cooking mind again Juli. I am envisioning these as meatballs, as little balls of meat are my new favorite go to snack/breakfast meal. I make your SW meatloaf into them on a regular basis. I might have to try these out in meatball form. Most of the ladies at my box are convinced the world is not right without a batch of meatballs cooked up weekly. Adding chorizo would kick these so over the top! Might have to try that route. If they don’t work..I am so down for making these burgers. Growing up my grandma cooked chorizo all the time..so I know its value and secrets 🙂

    Thanks again for a great post. Oddly, I am the opposite as I am a LOVER of box jumps..and even starting to dig burpees (which I can say after a WOD a few days ago that had a 100 of those after 100 thrusters. EEK).

  21. I bet you would feel differently about the whole wedding shebang if the sky was the limit with money. It is sad that you need a lot of moola to make a good wedding these days.

    I have to try these! I think I want to make these into meatballs the size of cow balls.

  22. Juli, I soooo agree. As a little girl I was so girlie and always thought I would end up like a Disney princess (you know, happily ever after with a handsome prince in my beautiful white dress). But now I have grown up a bit, and I think too many people get caught up in the wedding and forget about the marriage. They throw so much money, time, energy and stress on this one day instead of thinking about putting that same money, time and energy into planning a future together. And they put so much pressure on themselves to have a ‘perfect’ day that they don’t even end up enjoying it! How stupid is that?! If I ever end up getting married I just want a simple bbq and booze at my folks place with close family and friends. Simple, cheap and fun for all!

  23. Jamaica, that’s where we got married! Planning the big deal was becoming no fun. We were driving by O’Hare and bingo, the idea to fly away was born. It was perfect and low stress!

  24. Box jumps suck. Nuff said. I got 5 stitches from a box jump a month ago and it still hurts at times. Also I’m extremely curious….why IS it that pants don’t fit the same after crossfitting? I keep thinking I’m getting fatter or something….

    1. Maria,

      The biggest muscles in your body are in your butt and legs… When you work out, especially CF, these muscles grow… a LOT. You’ll gain weight and your pants will not fit you. Muscles weight more than fat. You will see a difference in your waist and upper body though.

  25. One of your best posts ever…like Taylor Swift ever (quoted shamelessly from Jessica of “How Sweet It Is”).

    I had one of those ginormous wedding extravaganzas over …get ready…27 years ago…and, while I did enjoy it and feel like “Princess-for-a-Day”…really all that people tend to take away from it was how great the cake was and if there was a free bar. The cost justification for the dress alone demands reflection…luckily I inherited my Mom’s fabu dress from the fifties.

    I hope my daughter stops inquiring about “How Much Money I’ve Saved ” for her future marriage!..I actually prefer the beach with cake and good people.

    Sorry for the ramble…but could one use Portuguese Linguiça instead of chorizo? I have a feeling this recipe will help lure my non-paleo husband to what Paleo cuisine can really be. Here…the “yum” factor is blatantly apparent.

  26. Julie, I am 53 years young and love your blog! Every day I anticipate what you are going to write about!
    I love your spirit, your love of food, life in general. Quit putting yourself down. You are a beautiful woman and I bet that I am not the only one to tell you this!
    As for marriage, it is all that it’s cracked up to be if you find the right person, commit yourself to the long haul and know that there are times when you want to leave but you hang in there. I have been married for 24 years this year and if you told me that when I was 20 I would have laughed in your face. I got married right before my 30th birthday and I am so glad that I waited. It is worth it.
    Take care and blog on! You are the best!
    Winnie Garrett

  27. Love your blog, even though it makes want to work out and eat ALL day.

    I never have been a ‘wedding’ girl, and never thought about it until I got engaged. I had 3 goals that made our (not my) wedding the best party of my life:
    1. Have fun
    2. Open bar
    3. Let everything else go.

    People are still raving about how fun it was.

  28. Donna, this Donna thinks we are twins. I was just dreaming of using linguica with this….but sadly, a dream is all it is, since I live in AZ. Chorizo is as close as I can get…..insert sad face here. Gosh how I miss it!!

  29. I feel like I am the only guy who looks at your blog reguarly. I love your recipes! They are always so easy to make and delicious! By the time I get home from work and the gym it’s usually close to 8pm so I need these kind of recipes. Your little write ups crack me up too.. and here I am trying to lotion and grind down my callouses to make my hands soft.. shame on me…

    1. i actually know at least 2 more guys that read my blog, so thankfully, you’re not alone. don’t grind those puppies down, be proud! thanks for reading my blog regularly kevin 🙂 you’re the best

  30. Hi Juli! I just came across your blog recently (I think I know someone who liked your facebook page??) and I think you’re hilarious! Although I’m not a regular crossfitter, I have done those workouts a couple times and I workout regularly. All of your workout comments are totally true! I am a huge clutz when it comes to box jumps and I have fallen/tripped/missed the box on several occasions, one of them being falling straight on my ass in a very big, crowded gym during prime time….needless to say I have the scars to prove it and yes, they do NOT go away! lol I am not a 100% paleo eater but I do try to eat whole foods most of the time and (try to minimize) less sugar. I will def use this recipe in the near future. thanks!

  31. Hahaha i had a spontaneous bladder problem too as a child. One accident too many and all of a sudden you’re in diapers again. Well that didn’t actually happen, but i did pee myself a lot…whooops.

  32. Weddings are fun…planning them not so much…I’m planning mine now and trying to convince the mister to just getting eloped in Vegas and having a bomb party! We are planning a beach wedding though….so there’s that 🙂

    Besides that…this looks amazing! I’m in a paleo slump right now…I feel like I’m eating the same 3 things everyday! This will certainly change it up a bit!!

  33. Thanks for making me laugh, as always. I want one of these burgers while plopped down on the beach in my bikini and maybe some cake on the side.

    Your ‘ideal’ wedding sounds perfect. It reminds me of our honeymoon. It is honestly the best way to get married. Then you can come back home and throw a big party with all of the delicious food and drinks without the hassle of the formalities (and getting dressed up in a fluffy dress). I would much rather wear a swimsuit anyway. 😉

  34. On the cellulite, how much water do you drink? Have you ever tried to do the 64oz of “cranberry water” everyday from the “Fat Flush” plan? I know my skin gets miraculously better when I do 64 oz of cranberry water. Of course, I never seem to keep it going for more than a couple weeks (at best) but my adult acne clears up and I think my cellulite improves…. Just a thought.

  35. These look very delicious! I must confess i don’t make most of your recipes but i’m addicted to your blog because of your honest confessions. I ditto the wedding sentiment. Although for me an interesting thing happened. Before marriage weddings were blah…and stressful…aside from food and drink..providing it was good. Post marriage i really enjoy weddings. I get to reminisce about falling in love and eat and dance.
    I hated planning my own wedding but am so glad i was forced into it via my mother-in-law who blocked out every weekend for months until it was done. It ended up being super fun and I will remember it forever as one of my happiest days.

    I got married in Mexico 1.5 years ago because I hate most traditional wedding/bride stuff. NOT. MY. THING. Mexico was the greatest thing ever and my family loved it. Go for it girl when the time comes..you aren’t alone! I feel like I am lacking some female bride gene somewhere…

  37. Kristy Suworoff

    1) Got married in Mexico. Best decision ever. 2) Guys with soft hands just ain’t right. Girls with soft hands just ain’t right. Lift something for God sakes. 3) Made these burgers for dinner tonight. Holy shit they’re good.

  38. Stephanie Manring

    You’re a trip– I about peed myself reading your post:) I feel your pain on the box jumps.. Bastards. I love them and hate them at the same time.. I am super slow though because I stand there before each jump and have to have a jedi mind session with the box to make sure it knows not to trip me up again. My shins can’t take anymore, and my dream of being a fabulous bikini body come summer is going to be a bit hindered by the sexy “Peanuts” bandaids. I’m glad I found you– I’m doing a Whole Life Chllenge right now, and was searching out some good recipes to cook up some of this delicious local grass fed beef I have:) Thanks!!

  39. I made these for my family on Thursday night – they were delicious, and our two kids (4 & 6) loved them. Thanks for the recipe – I’ll definitely be making these again.

  40. I made these the other night. Oh my gosh, easy and absolutely delicious – so it hit my only two requirements. These were amazeballs. I added a little bit of salsa to the avocado puree because the bf is addicted to spicy food

  41. I loved this! I am also so excited about your cookbook (pre-ordered awhile back) and wanted to tell you how awesome of a job you did doing the Crossfit Lakewood-Golden intro to the Paleo challenge! We all loved it!

  42. Your blog is great! Glad I found it — always looking for good Paleo-style recipes. If you’re ever in need of a good source for this yummy Paleo burger meat, me and my family support this awesome small farm in Florida called Pasture Prime Family Farm. Their cows are all 100% grass-fed, and they raise Wagyu beef, so it’s actually YUMMY grass-fed beef. Anyhow, check them out (they ship their meat), and keep posting yummy recipes!

  43. OMFG!!! Talk about FOODGASM!!! Seriously had an affair with this burger tonight!!! It was so good and I don’t feel dirty, cheap or alone haha thank you so much for all of your delish recipes!!! You’re awesome and amazingly highlarious!!

  44. Crystal Lasnier

    Delicious! The only edit i would make is the time in the oven for the sweet potatoes. Unless they are paper thin which they don’t appear to be from the photos then they will need to cook much longer than 12 minutes.

  45. “Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, baking sure not to overlap”
    Should be “making sure” but I know you did that on purpose for humor on a cooking blog 🙂
    Love your website! Guy follower #5 right here!

  46. I made ones just like these a couple of weeks ago. But with ground turkey and a plantain “bun”. They were really good and made me wonder what they would taste like if made with andouille sometime for an extra kick.

  47. This is one of my fave recipes of Juli’s and I have not even been able to grill them yet, but tonight is the night for that!! (just stove top) I actually prefer them w/ just fresh avocado or no avocado at all. Its making me hungry just thinking bout how great they are! Thank you for another great recipe!!

  48. Just made these last night, and they were AMAZING! Cooking the pineapple and sweet potato in coconut oil adds such a dynamic flavor to the chorizo and avocado. A+!

  49. WOW. I have died and gone to Paleo heaven. What an amazing combination of flavors. I grilled mine slowly over charcoal. Delish!

  50. Hubby cooked this for the family tonight and everyone loved it including my very picky 10 year old son. Thank you very much.

  51. Delish recipe, but little turd burgers didn’t stay pinched together for me! Guess I lack skills in Pinching 101 (must have skipped that day in kindergarten! Lol). Another funny blog and great food! You totally rock lady!!

    1. P.S.: I’ve seen you tell ppl to upload pics of their foods etcetera but how and is that here or elsewhere??

  52. Man, I suck so bad. I just made these and despite my best efforts they turned out ugly as heck. The meat shrank a ton and in the end they were piles of meat and a pineapple, nothin which resembled a burger much at all. Any clue how I screwed it up so bad? I did use a bit more than a 1/2lb beef, but still!

    1. Hahaha you just didn’t deal them up enough. The meat will shrink up so you need to be sure to tighten sides to the extreme. Hopefully it still tasted great!

  53. This is the first recipe I try from your blog and it was freakin amazing! The presentation was awful but it tasted so good, I know what to fix for next time. I just wanted to say thank you and I love reading your blogs =)

  54. These were AMAZING! Feeding my family something that everyone likes is NO easy task, yet every recipe I make of yours is a home run! THANK YOU!!!

  55. My FB post after eating: Pineapple-Stuffed Chorizo Burgers…the most amazing amazingness to ever have the amazing luck to be amazing. I hated them…hehehe o:-)

    Loved by all involved between 5 and 30 years old…

  56. I just criticized one of your waffle recipes but I must say this looks fantastic. I think its a little to much sugar for me but damn this looks good.

  57. The first time I made these my daughter said she didn’t care for them. Now, when she’s home on leave, she requests them. I just need to use more beef, less chorizo, and mix really well. I throw in salt, pepper, and garlic. The avocado I slice, and I serve some grilled pineapple on the side. Also…it could be Caveman influence…I add bacon. We love them. A lot. Oven roasted green beans go well with them, too.

  58. Oh HI Juli. I’ve been listening to the GGW podcast for a while, and when you were on (last week? maybe, sometimes I listen when it comes out, sometimes I listen 3 weeks later) I thought “This Juli chick, I think she’s probably a cool person. I wish I had been at her wedding, it sounds almost as fun as mine! I should check out her blog!” So I did check out your blog, and I’ve gone through so many of your posts like some crazy stalker (but I’m not, I just like food and your sense of humor). Today I’m thinking “cinco de mayo…woo I like Mexican food and tequila” so after I found your amazing recipe for coconut lime margaritas that I plan to make the moment I get home, I started browsing for an easy dinner for tonight. Of course I have to read every post and can’t go straight to the recipe and I read this and thought “Juli just had the exact wedding she described three years ago!!!” I think that’s totally rad! This post is long, and random, and I’m terrible and awkward at ending correspondence, so….bye!

    1. really? that’s so cool! one of my goals later on is to put together all my blog posts into one book (carrie bradshaw style) to see the changes over the years. so glad you came across the blog and hope you love any of the recipes you try!
