  • 1
    Spray the grill with cooking spray, then preheat to medium-high.
  • 2
    Place the ground beef and chorizo in a large bowl. Add the taco seasoning and mix with your hands until just evenly combined.
  • 3
    Divide the meat into 6 equal balls.
  • 4
    Place a cube of cheddar cheese in the middle of each ball.
  • 5
    Use your hands to encase the meat around the cheese. Pat until you have covered the cheese completely and have formed a burger patty.
  • 6
    Place the patties on the grill, close the grill, and cook undisturbed (do not press down on the patties) until grill marks appear on the bottom, about 3 to 4 minutes. Using a spatula, flip the patties, close the grill again, and cook until grill marks appear on the second side and the patties are cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes more. During the last minute of grilling add a slice of pepper jack cheese to each patty.
  • 7
    Place a patty on each bun bottom, top with bacon and jalapenos. Add top bun and serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • If you don't have a grill, the burgers can be seared in a skillet on the stove.
