Ingredients

Queso

10 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American, cut into quarters
1 (4-ounce) can chopped jalapeño peppers*

Burgers

8 ounces ground chorizo sausage
8 ounces lean ground beef
8 (4-inch) flour tortillas
1 cup prepared pico de gallo
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
1/2 cup southwest-flavored tortilla strips**

Directions

Heat gas grill on medium-high or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

Combine cheese and jalapeño peppers in bowl. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, 2-3 minutes or until melted. Keep warm; set aside.

Combine chorizo and beef in bowl. Shape mixture into 8 patties.

Grill patties, turning once, 10-12 minutes or until internal temperature reaches at least 160°F and meat is no longer pink in center.

Grill tortillas 1-2 minutes or until grill marks are visible on one side.

Place patties on one half of ungrilled side of tortillas. Top each with queso, pico de gallo, lettuce and tortilla strips. Fold tortilla over filling.

Serve with extra queso for dipping, if desired.


*Substitute 1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chiles.

**Substitute regular-flavored tortilla strips or corn chips.  Tortilla strips are often found in the produce section of the supermarket.

Recipe Tip

- Keep grilled tortillas warm in aluminum foil while you finish grilling burgers. If you cannot find 4-inch tortillas at the supermarket, substitute 8-inch tortillas, cut into quarters, or cut 4-inch rounds out of larger tortillas with 4-inch biscuit cutter. Burgers can also be served on slider buns or dollar-sized rolls.

-Extra queso is delicious served with tortilla chips.
