DIRECTIONS:

In a large bowl, mix ground beef, chorizo, and shallots thoroughly.  Form into 6 equal patties, 1/2 – 3/4″ thick.  Cook on indirect heat on a medium-hot grill, about 7 minutes or until desired doneness (if cooking indoors, you can just use a pan or a griddle on your stove).  Top with the cheese, place on buns and top with roasted red peppers.  Add your other desired toppings and condiments and serve.
