Chipotle-Honey Chorizo and Beef Burgers


  • 2 (10oz.) pkgs. Cacique® Beef, Pork or Soy Chorizo

  • 2 lbs. lean ground beef

  • 1 pkg. Cacique® Cotija, crumbled

  • 8 Ciabatta bread rolls or rustic country bread

  • Chipotle Honey Cream- see recipe below

  • Grilled onions

  • Sliced avocado

Preparation Method
Mix the chorizo and meat in a mixing bowl, and work them with your hands until well combined. Or blend in a food processor. Form meat mixture into 8 thick patties. Make a pocket in the center of each patty, fill with each with about one ounce of Cotija cheese, and cover the cheese with meat. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and broil in oven for 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare hamburgers. Finish off in a skillet over medium heat if you desire a medium-cooked hamburger. Using a grill is another option. Make sure you brush oil on the grill so meat does not stick.

Add sliced avocado and grilled onions. Warm the roll, dollop a generous tablespoon of Chipotle Honey Cream, top with the burger, avocado, and grilled onion, close the sandwich and enjoy!

Chipotle Honey Cream:

  • 4 Tbsp. Cacique® Crema Agria

  • 2 chipotle peppers with 2 Tbsp. Adobo sauce

  • 4 Tbsp. honey

Blend above ingredients in a blender. Allow to rest in refrigerator. When ready to serve, spread sauce on bun.
