  1. I cannot wait to make this for my husband. He was watching your show with me and was so impressed – we were recently in DC visiting our daughter we went to Mission Restaurant- it was wonderful!! Looking forward to your next season!

  2. the chorizo burger looks good. I make a burger with half beef half pork. I then add cooked thick cut maple bacon to it cooled and add chili powder to it and cook them.
