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

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Mix together the beef and chorizo, sprinkling with salt and pepper. Form 4 patties, each around 6 ounces.
  3. Blend the jalapeno with the mayonnaise to make a jalapeno aioli. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  4. Make a pico de gallo by combining the tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper and cayenne to taste.
  5. Grill the burgers until well done, around 5 minutes per side. Top each with a slice of pepper jack cheese. Grill the buns.
  6. 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.
