    Chef Shadows's Note:

    Found this recipe tucked away in the back of the kitchen drawer. Do not remember where it came from. Spanish style burger made from beef and chorizo sausage, topped with caramelized onions and smoked red pepper ranch sauce and shavings of Manchego cheese served on over sized buns. These are 1/2 pound burgers for big eaters!

      This is a 10 star recipe for taste, appearance and a well written recipe too! It does take some time to prep all the ingredients, but I can assure you that it is well worth it. This is a LUXURY burger and ticks all my boxes for taste and flavour! The smoked paprika and saffron take this recipe to another taste level; whilst the red pepper ranch dressing adds a subtle and exciting flavour, and none of the above ingredients overpower the flavour of the burger. I am a HUGE lover of caramelised onions, and they are wonderful with this spicy burger. I served this with fried potatoes and fresh tomatoes from the garden. I did not have kaiser rolls, so I used my home-made French Boule bread - sliced and lightly toasted. I made this for Beyond Burgers in the Photos Forum, and also for the Gardening, Herbs and Spices Forum - Herb/Spice of the month - PAPRIKA! I used smoked paprika in this recipe for a subtle smoky flavour. Amazing Shadows - a burger beyond any burger I have ever tasted - wonderful! Oh yes, I used mature Cheddar cheese.

      Outstanding!!! I did have @ 1/2 lb "filet beef trimmings" and 1 lb freshly ground chorizo. I didn't have any Saffron and I used jarred red pepper.

      Will make again!!

      Made this recipe using Spanish cured chorizo. Cut up the chorizo in small cubes and mixed it in the ground beef. I followed the recipe for the dressing and think next time I'd cut it down in half because there was so much left over. Would make this again - different spin on a burger :)
