1 tbsp lime juice, plus wedges to serve
Small bunch coriander, chopped

1 and a half tbsp olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
2 ciabatta rolls, split and toasted
Soured cream, avocado, small handful rocket and chips, to serve (optional)
Here’s what you’ll need to do…
1.In a food processor, pulse the chorizo, sausage meat, paprika, lime juice and coriander until well combined. Add the beans and some seasoning, and quickly pulse again to mix.

4.Serve the burgers in rolls with soured cream, avocado and rocket, with chips and lime wedges on the side, if you like.
