- 1 lb Beyond Meat Beef Thawed
- 6 oz Vegan Chorizo We used Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo
- 1 Yellow Onion Sliced
- 4 Slices of Vegan Cheese We used Violife Mature Cheddar
- 4 Hamburger Buns We recommend pretzel buns

Russian Sauce Ingredients
- 1/4 Cup Vegan Mayo
- 2 tbsp Ketchup
- 2 tbsp Yellow Mustard

To make these amazing vegan Frita’s, turn on your grill (or stovetop) and combine 1 lb of Beyond Meat Beef with 6 oz of vegan Chorizo in a bowl.
Flatten out evenly in the bowl and divide into 4 parts to shape into burger patties. This will equate to quarter pounders once it cooks and releases the fat.
Cook the patties for 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until brown. We recommend cooking them over the grill for a lean and flavorful burger. However, we’ve also made this on the griddle/pan and it still is delicious. Just beware of the drippage!
While the patties are cooking, saute your onions until they are brown and caramelized (Trick: add a dash of maple syrup to caramelize the onions further).
Once you flip the patties for the first time, place a slice of cheese over each patty so that the cheese melts as the other side cooks. This will lead to ultimate cheesy goodness!
Remove from heat and assemble! Spread the Russian sauce on the pretzel buns and stack the caramelized onions and Pik-Nik sticks over your delicious Frita/Chorizo Burger!
