To me, burgers are synonymous with summer. I wanted to put a fun little spin on a burger. With my Mexican Burger, I'm challenging Taco Bell's "Think Outside the Bun" slogan by putting Mexican cuisine right back on the bun! This is really easy to whip up, and you can put your favorite taco toppings on it too. I like mine pretty simple, which is why I only used salsa and sour cream.
Ingredients (yields 3 burgers)
-1 pound ground beef
-1 packet taco seasoning (I used Ortega for these, but I prefer Old El Paso)
-3 slices sharp cheddar cheese
-3 tablespoons mild salsa
-3 teaspoons sour cream
-3 toasted burger buns
1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef with the entire contents of the taco seasoning packet. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Form 3 burger patties.
2. On the grill over medium-high heat, grill patties 5 minutes each side, flipping once. Our until desired cook temperature is reached.
3. Remove patties from grill and place one slice of cheddar cheese on each. Place burgers on baking sheet and place under the oven broiler for 3 minutes, until cheese is fully melted.
4. Top with a tablespoon of salsa and a teaspoon of the sour cream and serve on a toasted bun. Make it unique by adding your favorite taco toppings!
