  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground sirloin and chorizo using your hands. Set aside to let the flavors blend.
  2. Heat one tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add one chopped onion, and saute until tender. Transfer the onion to a blender, and add the red pepper, Ranch dressing, saffron, and paprika. Pulse until fairly smooth. Refrigerate until needed.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and add the remaining onions, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Cook and stir for about 15 minutes until the onions are golden brown. Set aside.
  4. Preheat the grill for high heat. Form the meat into four patties, slightly larger than the buns.
  5. Place burgers on the grill, and cook for 5 minutes per side, or until well done. Split buns in half, and spread butter on the inside. Place on the grill to toast briefly.
  6. Place burgers onto buns, and top with caramelized onion and the roasted pepper ranch sauce. Sprinkle with a few shavings of manchego cheese, and place the top of the bun on top.

Yum - I omitted the ranch dressing (not my thing, but I kept the rest of the pepper mixture...makes a nice dressing) and substituted ground chuck since Sirloin is a bit to lean to make juicy bur...

Used ground turkey and chicken chorizo from Trader Joes. Came out yummy and healthier!

Followed the recipe minus the saffron and manchego cheese. Couldn't find them in two local grocery stores. In place, used a dash of caynenne pepper, and 1/4 slice of gouda cheese. Used mini-whea...

Horrible fell apart on the grill if it needs eggs or something to hold it together it should be listed in the recipe

This was pretty good. I did half the recipe for the sauce and still had extra. I wasnt sure if this was mexican chorizo, but it was what I had so I used it. I also did not like the brown suga...

The differences between Spanish and Mexican chorizo should be noted as their forms are entirely different. Spanish chorizo is cured sausage with a smoky flavor. This pork is chopped not ground...
