This Mexican-inspired burger packs a punch of flavor with the chorizo ground beef patty smothered in peppers, onions, and cheese. It’s a Queso Fundido Chorizo Hamburger.

This burger is inspired by famous chef Rick Bayless. He’s a master chef of all things Mexican. He competed on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters and won! He actually made a queso fundido burger while on the show and won his challenge with it.  Today I’m taking that winning dish and turning it into a winner you can easily make at home.

A queso fundido burger basically translates to cheese burger. But it sounds more adventurous as queso fundido, huh? This burger utilizes both ground beef and chorizo to create a really flavorful patty. Top it with not one, but two slices of cheese and guacamole and you’ve got yourself a Mexican burger delight! Such a fun burger that will spruce up your summer bbq! This burger could very well change your life. If it’s good enough to win on Top Chef, you know it’s gonna be good enough to win over the hearts of everyone at your next backyard barbecue.
