One day a week is burger night at our house so I am always on the lookout for new burger recipes. Usually I just copy what I see on restaurant menus. This week I got a new cookbook ~ 1,000 Easy Recipes; Super Fun Food for Every Day ~ that is put out by the Food Network and found this recipe in it. It IS easy and Mr. Meat Eater and I both enjoyed the burgers.
The burgers really taste like tacos in a bun. The next time I make these, I might mix the spice in the burger instead of just sprinkling it.
1 1/2 lbs ground chuck
1/2 tsp kosher salt
White cheddar slices
Sour cream, optional
Tortilla chips, optional
Mix the ground beef with the kosher salt and form into 4 patties. Don’t forget to make the indentation so they don’t puff up during grilling.
Sprinkle one side with cumin, oregano, and chili powder to taste.
Grill until they are done to your likeness. Place a slice of cheese on the burger and let melt while still on the grill.
Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.
Makes 4 burgers.
