Before starting, preset the broiler to high. Wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 5 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1 tsp mild, 2 tsp medium, 1 tbsp spicy and 2 tbsp extra-spicy! Roughly chop kale. Halve tomatoes. Zest lemon, then juice half. Cut remaining lemon into wedges.
Add mayo, lemon juice, lemon zest, half the Parmesan and half the garlic puree to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then stir to combine. Add kale and tomatoes, then toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Add chorizo, remaining garlic puree and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl) to a medium bowl. Season with pepper, then combine. Form mixture into two 4-inch-wide patties (4 patties for 4 ppl).
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then patties. Pan-fry until cooked through, 4-5 min per side.** When patties are almost done, top with half the mozzarella, then cover until cheese melts.
While patties cook, halve buns. Arrange on an unlined baking sheet, cut-side up. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella over buns. Broil in the middle of the oven until buns are golden-brown and cheese is melted, 1-2 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on buns so they don't burn!) While cheese melts, combine sour cream and 2 tsp hot sauce in a small bowl. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Spread spicy crema over bottom buns, then stack with spring mix and chorizo patties. Close with top buns. Divide burgers and Caesar salad between plates. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan over salad. Squeeze over a lemon wedge, if desired.
