Latin Burger: Beautiful Mexican flavors find their way to your summer grill in this delicious recipe pairing Omaha Steaks hamburgers with chorizo, monterey jack cheese and pico de gallo.
Deliciously juicy burgers piping hot from the grill are what summers are all about. I have come to expect and look forward to my share of burgers throughout this season. However things have gotten a bit stale around my parts in that department. This latin burger idea came from a serious need to spice things up in my kitchen (literally).
The flavors of this burger are insane! Thanks to the quality burgers of Omaha Steaks, you can never go wrong with their products. Adding unique flavors to their already sound products was just icing on the cake!
So what did I do to this Latin burger to make the flavors come alive? Well first I knew that adding some chorizo would be fantastic and unexpected. Spicy sausage and beef together are now a match made in heaven. They complement each other well. I think it was a good call.
I used two patties and added a milder yet flavorful monterey jack cheese and then topped everything off with pico de gallo. This is rich in tomato, onion and cilantro flavors that scream Mexico in the most sensational way! I fell all the way in love with this burger.
Let’s just say the rut is officially gone.
