  • 24 ounces ground turkey
  • 12 ounces ground chorizo
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • Splash of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp breadcrumbs if needed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 Cheddar cheese slices
  • 8 toasted buns for serving
  • Any toppings you desire - like roasted jalapeno slices and homemade guacamole.


  • Heat a pan to medium heat and add oil. Add onions and peppers and cook about 6 minutes, or until they are cooked through and soft.
  • Add the garlic and cook another minute until fragrant.
  • Add to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the turkey, chorizo and salt and pepper. If the mixture feels too wet, add in the breadcrumbs to tighten it up. Hand mix, but do not overmix.
  • Form into six 6 ounce patties, or eight 4.5 ounce patties. Or maybe four 9 ouncers! Go big or go home!
  • Heat a grill to medium heat and lightly oil.
  • Add the burgers and cook about 6-7 minutes per side, or until cooked through, depending on the size. Get your nice grill marks!
  • Top with cheese slices and cover. Cook about a minute to melt the cheese.
  • Serve on toasted buns with your favorite toppings. I used some guacamole, baby. And roasted jalapeno peppers, of course.


Heat Factor: Medium. Up the heat factor with a spicier, hotter chorizo and hotter peppers.
