“Found this recipe tucked away in the back of the kitchen drawer. Do not remember where it came from. Spanish style burger made from beef and chorizo sausage, topped with caramelized onions and smoked red pepper ranch sauce and shavings of Manchego cheese served on over sized buns. These are 1/2 pound burgers for big eaters!”
