Chorizo Beef Burgers with Green-Chile Mayo for Chuck Hayes

January 27, 2011


For Chuck Hayes
“Chuck Hayes made Blake Griffin look human.”
from Official site of The Houston Rockets
A defensive machine rallying to tire Blake the entire game.  Who else but Hayes could come back play after play to tire, wear down and take away Blake’s entire game.
A true gentleman with solid ethics wins my heart every amazing play.  Chuck enjoy this hearty burger to refuel your tired legs. 
Loaded with beef, chorizo and pepper jack cheese for a spicy kick!
