This post is part of a kick-butt burger grill giveaway hosted by GirlCarnivore but the Cinco de Mayo burger epicness is all my own.
I have always loved Mexican food and cheese hamburgers. For National Burger Month, I combined my two favorite foods, cheeseburger and Mexican food.
Ingredients and Preparation:
Season meat with cumin, garlic salt and pepper and grill to your liking.
Sauté onion slices in a pan with a pat of butter and a teaspoon of sugar to caramelize them. The caramelized onions add a sweet taste. Keep warm.
Grill poblano pepper until charred. Place pepper in a plastic bag to steam skin. Remove most of charred outside. I like to leave some char on the pepper. Cut open and remove seeds and cut into pieces to fit on your burger. This grilled pepper adds a delicious smoky taste.
Add your pepper jack cheese and watch it melt. Assemble your burger with the toppings.
Add a dollup of your favorite refried beans. I can’t enjoy Mexican without them. Yum!
Put a generous spoonful of fresh pico de gallo. This replaces all of your condiments.
