Spanish Burgers with Caramelized Onion & Chile Relish and Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Whew, it is a mouthful, but so is this incredible, juicy, decadent burger. This is the burger to impress. Wanna shock the socks off your non-Paleo, skeptical friends? Make this immediately!!!


Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
1/2 cup of thickened coconut milk (the thick part of an unshaken can of coconut milk) or homemade mayo
12 oz. jar of roasted red peppers or roast 3 red peppers beforehand
1 ts. salt
1/2 ts. pepper


Scoop the thickened coconut milk or the homemade mayo into a blender. Add drained roasted red peppers, salt, and pepper. Process till smooth. Set aside in refrigerator for 30 min. to a few days so flavors can deepen.

Caramelized Onion Chile Relish
2 TB of olive oil
2 large sweet onions, finely diced
16oz of roasted/seeded green chiles
1/2 cup of coconut sugar>

salt and pepper to taste


Eat 2 TB of olive oil in a pan over low/medium heat. Add the diced onions, salt and pepper. Add green chiles and coconut sugar. Slowly cook for around 15-20 minutes until the onions are soft and are a deep, caramelized color. Set aside.

1 1/2lbs of ground beef
1/2lb of chorizo
1 TB of homemade taco seasoning
1 medium onion, finely diced
Portobello caps (optional for “bun”)
optional toppings: tomato, lettuce, ketchup, mustard, homemade mayo, avocado or guacamole, fried egg, pickles and cheese (if you do dairy)

Add all the ingredients to a big bowl. Get in there with your hands and mix everything up. Form into 5-6 patties. We  like to set the raw patties in the fridge to harden up for about 30 minutes before throwing on the grill. Place the burgers on a hot grill and cook to your desired doneness. However, since you are using chorizo, I recommend you cooking them to medium-well (8 minutes per side). If you are grilling the Portobello caps, throw them on and cook about 3-5 minutes per side.

Top the burger with caramelized onion relish, roasted red pepper sauce, and another toppings you would like! Put between Portobello caps or 2 big lettuce leaves! ENJOY and feel free to lick the plate!

    These look awesome! I might try to make sweet potato “pancakes” as a bun too!

    I am so happy to have some guidelines–just started ‘easing” into Paleo–so this is tremendously helpful! Tonight we are having spanish burgers…and the chicken is marinating for tomorrow night. Thanks so much for posting these–I look forward to more!
