  1. Place yellow onions, chorizo, green bell pepper, and garlic in a food processor; pulse until minced.
  2. Transfer onion mixture to a large bowl. Add ground beef, ground pork, bread crumbs, eggs, ketchup, cumin, salt, and black pepper; mix with your hands until well-blended.
  3. Form mixture into 12 patties.
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook patties in batches until browned and medium well done, about 5 minutes per side.
  5. Serve cooked patties on hamburger buns topped with shoestring potatoes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • This recipe makes great sliders (it'll make 24). And you won't be able to eat just one if you make them into slider size!
  • If you can't find shoestring potatoes, grate potatoes and fry them in vegetable or canola oil.
