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

8 ounces
ground chorizo sausage
8 ounces
lean ground beef
8 (4-inch)
flour tortillas
1 cup
prepared pico de gallo
1 cup

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

Directions

  1. Heat gas grill on medium-high or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.
  2. Combine cheese and jalapeño peppers in bowl. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, 2-3 minutes or until melted. Keep warm; set aside.
  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. Grill tortillas 1-2 minutes or until grill marks are visible on one side.
  5. Place patties onto ungrilled side of tortillas. Top each with queso, pico de gallo, lettuce and tortilla strips. Fold tortilla over filling.
  6. Serve with extra queso for dipping, if desired.

Recipe Tips

- 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.
