Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 6 ounces fresh chorizo
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 6 ounces mayonnaise
  • 8 ounces roma tomato, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 4 slices jalapeno jack cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 bib lettuce leaves
Directions

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

Mix together the beef and chorizo, sprinkling with salt and pepper. Form 4 patties, each around 6 ounces.

Blend the jalapeno with the mayonnaise to make a jalapeno aioli. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Make a pico de gallo by combining the tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper and cayenne to taste.

Grill the burgers until well done, around 5 minutes per side. Top each with a slice of pepper jack cheese. Grill the buns.

Build the burgers by spreading a layer of jalapeno aioli on the bottom bun, followed by a slice of lettuce, the burger, some pico de gallo and finally the top bun with more aioli.
