To prepare mayonnaise, combine first 5 ingredients in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until combined. Cover and chill mayonnaise mixture.
To prepare burgers, remove casings from sausage. Place sausage, salt, tortillas, chicken, and jalapeño in food processor; process 30 seconds or until mixture is coarsely ground. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.
Place patties on a grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 7 minutes on each side or until done.
Cut rolls in half horizontally; spread 1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture over top half of each roll. Place tomato slices on bottom halves of rolls; top each with 1 patty and top half of each roll.
Used ground chicken. Used bread crumbs seasoned with smoked paprika, Mexican oregano, and cumin instead of tortillas. Used serranos instead of jalapeno. Skipped the food processor. Skipped the mayo. Topped with guacamole instead.
This was yummy with a little tweaking. The burgers themselves were delicious, but we amped up the sauce using 1 part green onion, 1 part cilantro, 1 part mayo, and lime to taste. The sauce was packed with flavor, and some sliced avocado on top was the finishing touch.
I really like this recipe for a change of pace. I swapped the corn tortillas for flour (despite the nutritional difference it makes) and liked this recipe MUCH better. It is one of my kid's favorites. I agree that the mayo is nothing special. I prefer to just slice and avocado and put the slices on the burger whole. Guacamole is better than the mayo for this burger. I make this quite regularly.
Ehhh... This was alright, but nothing special. I thought it was a bit bland. Like another reader said, the mayo wasn't anything special and I didn't really care for the prevalence of corn tortilla flavor in the burgers. Personally I didn't think it was that difficult to make and a simple mixed green salad with some cilantro-lime vinaigrette that I bought from Whole Foods was a fine accompaniment. It's a filling sandwich. However, I wouldn't make this again - with so many other good burger recipes out there, this one just isn't worth my time, money, or effort.
