1 pound ground beef

4 ounces chorizo sausage, casing removed 

2 teaspoons onion powder 

1 teaspoon ground cumin, plus more for the rosada sauce 

Salt and pepper 

1 cup grated aged Cheddar

1 cup queso blanco

1/2 cup mayonnaise 

1/4 cup ketchup 

1 lime, zested and juiced

6 slider buns, split 


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, chorizo, onion powder, cumin and 2 teaspoons each salt and pepper. Form the mixture into palm-size balls.
  2. Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the balls on the griddle and smash with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Cook, flipping once, until cooked through. Divide the Cheddar and queso blanco among the burgers and let melt. Remove the burgers to a plate.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup and lime zest and juice in a bowl; mix to blend. Add cumin, salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Toast the slider buns on the griddle. Serve the burgers on the buns, topped with some rosada sauce.
