These flavorful Cuban-style burgers are simple to prepare and are made by combining ground beef with chorizo sausage. It's best if you can get ground chorizo, but if you can only find it in sausage casings then you will need to remove the casings. Not a difficult operation. This burger leaves it up to you to fill in the toppings and condiments. What I like on this is some mild mustard (you don't want to over do it) and an Anaheim pepper. You split open the pepper and cut it into thin strips. Anaheims are a mild pepper but loaded with great flavor.
