Chorizo Pepper Jack Cheeseburgers with Guacamole. If you’re bored with the same old burgers, get ready for a flavour revolution in this incredibly different but tasty cheeseburger idea.
Since I made some delicious homemade chorizo sausage last week, I’ve been enjoying it in as many ways as possible.
I’ve grilled the sausage, smoked it and used it in an absolutely amazing brunch dish. That delicious brunch included eggs and spicy tomato compote.

Yesterday when burgers were on our weekend menu, I decided to add some of the loose sausage meat to the ground beef. I’ve often done before with other sausages.
The burgers turned out juicy and delicious and worked beautifully with the melting pepper jack cheese and guacamole.
If you’re looking for a way to breathe some life into boring burgers, this is a very tasty way to do it.
In recent years I have been making my own ground beef using a chuck/blade cut of beef. I have a grinder attachment for my Kitchen aid mixer that easily accomplishes this.
The difference it makes to burgers is not to be underestimated both in flavour and texture. Plus you know your ground beef is coming from a single source, which can never be guaranteed with supermarket ground beef. I highly recommend it.
We have some great side dish inspiration too, including everything from baked beans & corn bread to deliciously different potato and pasta salads. Be sure to check them all out in our collection of 35 Best BBQ Side Dishes too.
