Knock Your Boots Off Tex-Mex Burgers


Welcome to TSRI's Summer Grilling CelebrationWe are enjoying a whole month of grilling and summer dishes.  Today, we are talking serious burgers, seriously!  This burger is a FIESTA of southwestern flavors, some of my favorites wrapped up into one amazing burger.  Believe me when I say, I ate the whole thing!!  I could not stop myself it is so good.

This burger is incredibly moist with a nice little kick. Served with Grilled Sweet Potato Fries, this burger is a member of the clean plate club.  I tell you there was not even a crumb remaining on my plate!

Knock Your Boots Off Tex-Mex Burgers
2 pounds ground 93% lean beef, portioned in 8 ounce servings
2 teaspoons Tex-Mex seasoning (or your favorite, Mrs Dash SW Chipotle Seasoning is fantastic, remember to add salt)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup Guacamole (or your favorite store bought, I love Wholly Guacamole Pico de Gallo Guacamole here)
1 cup Pico de Gallo (or your favorite fresh salsa)
4 large hamburger buns
butter, room temperature

Preheat your grill to high.  These burgers are fantastic on any grill from stove top to charcoal and everywhere in between.

Form beef into 1/2" patties, making a slight indentation in the center of the burger to prevent it from doming up in the center.  The indentation will rise as your burger cooks.  Sprinkle each patty with 1/2 teaspoon Tex-Mex seasoning.  Gently rub seasoning into meat.

Grill until golden brown and slightly charred (about 5 minutes), turning once (cook for 4 minutes on the other side for medium). Avoid pressing with a spatula, you don't want the juices to escape! Add cheese for the last minute of cooking.

Butter buns and place on grill (inside down) for about 1 minute, until they are golden brown with grill marks.  Remove buns and prepare with 1/4 cup guacamole on the bottom bun.  Place burger on top and 1/4 cup pico de gallo on top.  Serve with Grilled Sweet Potato Fries!

    1. Thank you Tricia. So, you are not a 'big burger' fan or a big fan of burgers? I love burgers at home. I can't get enough some times I appreciate the compliment.

    1. One bite is a bit of an issue, thank goodness we are out of the ingredients now this burger is soooo good it is hard to put down. Maybe I will make a slider version next time.

  5. I always go by the old adage 'never eat anything bigger than your head', but for this burger I'll make an exception!

  6. 93/7 ground beef? Won't a higher fat content make a juicier burger?

    1. DB, I completely agree. I would recommend 80% for the best burger. I am trying to cut back a little and made these last time with the 93%, but both are absolutely amazing!!!
