Chorizo-Turkey Burgers with Roasted Jalapeno Peppers

These summertime burgers are ideal for grilling. They're a mixture of spicy ground chorizo and ground turkey, so they aren't quite so heavy. Loaded with plenty of seasonings, then topped with melty cheese and roasted jalapeno peppers, this burger recipe is sure to satisfy the spicy food lover.

Chorizo-Turkey Burgers with Roasted Jalapeno Peppers

Chorizo-Turkey Burgers with Roasted Jalapeno Peppers


  • 24 ounces ground turkey
  • 12 ounces ground chorizo
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • Splash of olive oil
  • Cheddar cheese slices
  • 6-8 toasted buns for serving
  • Any toppings you desire - like roasted jalapeno slices and homemade guacamole.

Cooking Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Add to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the turkey and chorizo and hand mix. Do not overmix.
  4. Form into six 6 ounce patties, or eight 4.5 ounce patties. Or maybe four 9 ouncers! Go big or go home!
  5. Heat a grill to medium heat and lightly oil.
  6. Add the burgers and cook about 6-7 minutes per side, or until cooked through, depending on the size. Get your nice grill marks!
  7. Top with cheese slices and cover. Cook about a minute to melt the cheese.
  8. Serve on toasted buns with your favorite toppings. I used some guacamole, baby. And roasted jalapeno peppers, of course.
