These beef chorizo burgers are stuffed with melty cheddar cheese and spicy jalapeños for a spicy kick. Serve them with a bowl of dressed greens, coleslaw or simple salads. It's a satisfying higher protein meal that will keep hunger at bay.

We're making large half-pound burgers but you can easily adjust this recipe and make 3 to 4 smaller burgers instead.

Remember, everyone has different dietary needs so it's only natural that you may need to adjust the macros in this recipe. Maybe you need less protein or you want to add a simple salad. You can make any adjustments directly in the KetoDiet App by cloning any of the recipes from my blog and customizing them to fit your macros and preferences.

Air Fryer to Oven Baking Conversion

If you don't have an air fryer, simply bake these in the oven. When converting an air fryer recipe to oven, you will need to bake it at a higher temperature for a few minutes longer.

To bake these Low-Carb Italian Stuffed Chicken Burgers in the oven, preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted), or 220 °C/ 425 °F (conventional). Once preheated, place the burgers in a tray lined with parchment paper and place in the middle rack of your oven. Bake for 6 minutes. Remove and top with cheddar cheese and jalapenos. Place bake in the oven and bake for another 7 to 8 minutes.

I used a large half-pound burger press to make these stuffed burgers. If you use a quarter-pound burger press to create 4 small burgers instead, reduce the cooking time by about 20 %.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

OMG this is soooooo good! I'm amazed this escaped my attention the first time it was published, but I'm so glad I've finally had a chance to make this. We had this for an easy dinner today and it was deeeeeelicious. We don't have an air fryer so we used the oven and the guidance for oven cooking times is spot on. We didn't change anything in the recipe and it was perfect! Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe, we will definitely be making this often 😊

This must be my most delayed reply! I think I may need to "hire" ChatGPT to approve my comments and notify me which ones to reply to! :-D I'm glad you enjoyed, Anu!
