Turkey-Chorizo Burgers with Creamy Guacamole - Recipe
A recipe for juicy burgers made from a mixture of ground turkey and spicy Mexican chorizo, perfect for the grill, served up with extra creamy guacamole.
- 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.
