This burger is bursting with the rich, salty and fresh flavors of Spain: Chorizo, onion, creamy Manchego cheese, olives, roasted peppers, and parsley. It’s a simple yet very flavorful twist for your next summer party.

  • 2/3 cup chopped pitted black olives
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chopped roasted red pepper
  • 1 cup loosely packed flat leaf Italian parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 lbs. ground chuck
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 8 oz. chorizo, roughly chopped
  • 8 (1 oz.) slices of Manchego cheese
  • 8 hamburger buns, split and toasted


  1. Pre-heat a grill for medium-high heat direct cooking.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl combine the olives, roasted red pepper and parsley. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine the ground chuck, onion soup mix, and the chorizo. Shape into 8 equal-sized 1/2-inch thick patties.
  4. Transfer the patties to the grill and cook on each side for 3-4 minutes, until well browned.
  5. Top each patty with a slice of Manchego cheese and cook until the burgers are cooked through and the cheese is melted.
  6. Put 1 tablespoon of the olive mixture on the bottom of each hamburger bun. Top with a burger patty, another 1 tablespoon of the olive mixture, and then with a bun top. Repeat until all burgers are made. Dig in.
