Ranchero Burgers Stuffed with Enchilado Cheese

chorizo enchilado burger

When I’m craving a homemade juicy burger I usually purchase pre-made cowboy patties at my local Whole Foods store and grill them up. Their patties are a combination of ground beef with bacon pieces and shredded cheddar cheese. As you can imagine they taste pretty darn spectacular.

I wanted to make a Latin version of these patties and called them ranchero burgers. Instead of bacon I used beef chorizo and rather than cheddar cheese I added enchilado cheese.

These burgers topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, and avocado slices are heavenly. Have ketchup, mayo, and mustard on hand, too, for the ultimate burger perfection! If you are looking for some grilling inspiration this Father’s Day try this recipe.
