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  

 

 *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.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

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

  2. STEP 2

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

  3. STEP 3

    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.

  4. STEP 4

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

  5. STEP 5

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

  6. STEP 6

    Serve with extra queso for dipping, if desired.

Tip #1

- 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.

Tip #2

-Extra queso is delicious served with tortilla chips.
