Chorizo Burger with Manchego and Paprika SlawIngredients

  • 1/2 pound ground beef

  • 1/3 pound fresh (Mexican) chorizo

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/8 pound Cordobes or Manchego

  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1 clove garlic, grated

  • 1 scallion, finely sliced

  • Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon

  • 2 big white, crusty rolls


Preheat a grill pan on medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, use your hand to gently just combine the beef and chorizo meat.  Season with salt and pepper, and divide and shape into two hamburger patties.  Rub the outside with the olive oil, and place on the hot grill.  Cook 6 to 8 minutes per side.  Once you flip the burger, place slices of cheese on top to melt.

Meanwhile, make the smoky paprika slaw by tossing the cabbage with the mayo, paprika, garlic, scallion, and lemon juice and zest.

Slice the rolls in half horizontally, and place on the grill cut-side-down for 1 to 2 minutes.  Then, build the burger by piling the bun with the burger and its melted cheese, and the slaw.
