How to Make a Chorizo Burger:: 

  • Step 1 – Mix the ground beef, ground chorizo, paprika, salt and pepper in a large bowl.  Mix until just combined.

How to Grill a Chorizo Burger:

  • Step 1 – Preheat the Grill over medium high heat (approximately 450-500 degrees F). Rub oil on the grill grates to prevent the patties from sticking to the grill.
  • Step 2 – Place the patties on the grill over direct heat.  Cook for 4-8 minutes flipping the patties halfway through the cook time. We recommend cooking depending on how you like your burger cooked (see notes). 
  • Step 3 – Use an instant-read meat thermometer to make sure that the burgers are cooked to your preference. Place a piece of cheese on each burger patty for approximately 1 minutes so that it can melt. 
  • Step 4 – Place the buns on the grill and cook for 1 minute until they are browned slightly.  Watch them closely so that they do not burn.
  • Step 5 – Add the cilantro lime mayonnaise, a lettuce leaf and red onions to the bottom bun of each bun.
  • Step 6 – Remove the beef from the grill. Then add them to each  of the hamburger buns on top of the lettuce.
  • Step 7 – Then top each patty with the tomatoes and avocado slices.  Serve warm and enjoy!
