Elevate your burger game with this enticing recipe for chicken and chorizo burgers, a flavorful twist on the classic beef burger. Bursting with savory spices and succulent flavors, these homemade burgers offer a delicious alternative that’s sure to tantalize your taste buds. Here’s how to make them.


  • 1 pound of ground chicken
  • 4 ounces of chorizo sausage, casing removed and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Burger buns, lettuce, tomato slices, and any other desired toppings


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, chopped chorizo, breadcrumbs, egg, chopped onion, minced garlic, smoked paprika, cumin, dried oregano, salt, and pepper.
  2. Use your hands to mix the ingredients until well combined, being careful not to overwork the mixture. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each portion into a patty, about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush the grill grates with oil to prevent sticking. Place the burger patties on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through and have nice grill marks.
  4. While the burgers are cooking, toast the burger buns on the grill until lightly golden. Once the burgers are cooked, remove them from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.
  5. Assemble the chicken and chorizo burgers by placing each patty on a toasted bun and topping with lettuce, tomato slices, and any other desired toppings. Serve the burgers hot and enjoy the irresistible combination of flavors in every bite.
