Someone asked me, offline, for this recipe so I told her I would post it here.
I found this recipe in Woman’s Day back in June of 2007. I calls for 2 dried chorizo sausages (4 oz total) that you half, remove from casing and cut in small chunks BUT I can barely find chorizo let alone dried chorizo up here in PA so I use just regular chorizo from the meat counter.
- 4 oz of chorizo sausage removed from the casing
- 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
- 2 large scallions cut into about 2 inch pieces
- 1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded and cut into large pieces
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp salt
Put all of those ingredients into a food processor and pulse until they are very finely chopped and blended.
Scrape into a large bowl and add 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef. Gently mix to combine.
Shape into oval burgers about 5 inches long and 3/4 inch thick (makes about 6 burgers)
Heat the grill. Grill turning once, 8-12 minutes, until done. Top each burger with a slice of Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers.
Serve in warmed tortillas with lettuce leaf, guacamole and a bit of pico or salsa
