How to Make a Burger Patty – Grilled Tex-Mex Burger

Here’s a nice variation on your everyday burger!  It is tasty and quite easy to make.  Enjoy it with some tortilla chips on the side. This is what you are going to need for this recipe:

1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
1 teaspoon cumin
¼ cup finely chopped cilantro
Salt and Pepper
4 slices Monterrey Jack cheese (or Pepper Jack if you want more spice)
4 burger rolls

1 large tomato sliced
Red onion rings
4 iceberg lettuce leaves
1 avocado, sliced
Jalapeño slices
½ cup spicy salsa
2 tablespoons mayo

Turn on the grill on high for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium.

In a bowl mix the beef with the garlic, minced jalapeño, cumin, cilantro, salt and pepper.

Form the meat into 4 patties.

Place the patties into a bowl of ice water for 30 seconds.

Take the patties out of the water and place on the grill. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes and flip.

Cook for an extra 2 minutes and cover with a slice of cheese. Cook for another 3 minutes, until cheese melts.

As soon as you flip the patty, place the hamburger bun on the grill and toast for a few minutes.

Mix the salsa and mayo in a small bowl.

Smear both sides of the hamburger bun with the sauce. Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom bun. Place the cooked hamburger on the lettuce and top with the tomato, onion, avocado and jalapeño slices. Cover with the remaining bun.

Serve.
