12 ounces ground beef

8 ounces chorizo

1 tablespoon adobo seasoning

3 large yellow onions; 1 grated and 2 thinly sliced

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1/2 cup minced jalapeno peppers

1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar

3/4 cup mayonnaise

2 roasted red bell peppers

6 potato rolls, split

6 slices cheese


  1. Mix the ground beef, chorizo, adobo seasoning and grated onion in a large bowl until thoroughly combined. Form into 6 patties. Refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced onions and season with salt and pepper. Add the jalapenos and brown sugar and saute until the onions are caramelized and soft, about 15 minutes. 
  3. Puree the mayonnaise and roasted red peppers in a blender or food processor until creamy. Season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Heat a grill to high. Grill the patties until cooked to the desired doneness. 
  5. Spread 1 tablespoon red pepper mayonnaise on both sides of the rolls. Lay a burger on the bottom half and top with caramelized onions, a slice of cheese and the top half of the roll.
