Chipotle-Honey Chorizo and Beef Burgers

We are serving up game day eats this week.  And who doesn’t love a juicy burger?

These burgers rock!  I have to say they are manly.  Huge in fact, but don’t let that stop you ladies they are so worth it!  Packed with flavor and a hint of heat these babies make both men & women happy!

A thick patty of ground beef with chorizo hide a pocket of cotija cheese.  Slather your bun with chipotle-honey sauce then pile high with avocado and grilled onions.  What’s not to love? Enjoy!



Chipotle-Honey Chorizo and Beef Burgers

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Yield: makes 8


  • 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
  • Grilled onions
  • Sliced avocado
  • 4 Tbsp. Cacique® Crema Agria
  • 2 chipotle peppers with 2 Tbsp. Adobo sauce
  • 4 Tbsp. honey


  1. Mix the chorizo and meat in a mixing bowl, and work them with your hands until well combined.
  2. Form meat mixture into 8 thick patties.
  3. 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.
  4. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and broil in oven for 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare hamburgers.
  5. Finish off in a skillet over medium heat if you desire a medium-cooked hamburger.
  6. Using a grill is another option.
  7. Make sure you brush oil on the grill so meat does not stick.
  8. Add sliced avocado and grilled onions.
  9. Warm the roll, dollop a generous tablespoon of Chipotle Honey Cream, top with the burger, avocado, and grilled onion, close the sandwich and enjoy!

  4. oh yes, me, me.. I do love a juicy burger and I am all over this one as you would know with the mex flavors… sipping coffee now but I know I could scarf down a few without hesitation even for breakfast…. Thanks for trying the salsa, I thought it still lacked something, maybe more heat, and yes by all means you know I do not mind one bit
