tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the onion; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds,  keeping the layers intact. Halve the buns. Roughly chop the lettuce. Halve the tomatoes. In a large bowl, combine the chopped lettuce and halved tomatoes. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise and fig spread. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Form the patties

Place the chorizo and breadcrumbs in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Gently mix until just combined. Using your hands, form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Transfer to a plate.

3 Cook the patties

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties. Cook 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a work surface.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 160°F.

Add the onion rounds to the pan of reserved fond (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook on medium-high 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until the onion rounds are softened and lightly browned. Leaving any fond in the pan, transfer to a work surface.

Toast the buns
