Mexican Inspired Nacho Cheeseburgers

Mexican Inspired Nacho Cheeseburgers

09 Sep 2019

September is a month of foodie celebrations with Guacamole Day and Cheeseburger Day falling within just a few days of each other. So, to show our appreciation, we’ve combined the two to make these lip-smacking Mexican inspired nacho cheeseburgers. Buen Provecho! 

What You’ll Need

  • 500g good quality beef mince
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped) 
  • 2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese 
  • 4 tbsp guacamole 
  • 4 tbsp chipotle 
  • 4 tbsp salsa 
  • Handful of salted nachos 
  • ½ small bunch of coriander, torn 

Method

  1. For the burgers: place the beef mince, chopped onion and garlic into a bowl. Season with black pepper and a pinch of salt. Cover and chill in the fridge for approx. 1 hour.
  2. When chilled, divide the mixture into 4 even balls – be careful not to pack them too tightly or your burgers will be tough. 
  3. Use the palm of your hand to flatten the beef mixture into patties and then use your thumb to make a small indentation in the centre of each one. 
  4. Place the burger patties on a baking sheet and then grill for approx. 5-8 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. 
  5. Meanwhile, lightly toast the seeded buns. 
  6. For the last minute of grilling, top each burger with a slice of cheddar and grill until melted. 
  7. To construct your burgers, divide the guacamole, burgers, chipotle, salsa and nachos between each bun and garnish with coriander.
