Nacho Cheeseburger- Burger Month

Nacho Burger-1

It’s the weekend!!!

It’s time to rock it. It’s time to get shhh done. It’s time to actually cook.

Nacho Burger-2

We’re going to be busy this weekend as we’re on vacation next weekend. So we really need to focus and try to tackle this weekend’s to do list, as well as much as possible of next weekend’s to do list. Here’s just a few things… laundry, mop the first floor, get the kitchen rug back down, clean Bunny’s cage, get to the post office, make SRC recipe, work on refinishing dinning chairs. Plus, I have a fun brunch to go to on Sunday while Price is visiting his sister and dad in NH. Oh yeah, and I have 4 hrs of work to do as well to make up time from always leaving early to get miss Autumn from daycare.

At least Price and I are ah-maze at tackling the to do list. I’m just hoping we ca pull it off this weekend. #Fingerscrossed.

While we’re talking to-do lists, I’m giving you this burger to add to your to-do list.

These Nacho Burgers are the perfect mash up of a great dinner and a great appetizer. But if we’re truthful here, I’ll just admit that we eat nachos for dinner a lot. Anyway, these are so great because of all the yummy toppings. AND the tortillas chips. The tortilla chips add the best crunch to the burgers. Don’t skimp on them.

You know how they say not to mess with things when grilling, well don’t mess with these burgers while you are grilling them. They are a little delicate since they are filled with a mixture of beef, beans, and cheese. So just put the burgers down and let them be until they are ready to be flipped once. Grab a beer and just relax.

Nacho Burger-4

I’ve made these burgers two times in like 9 days since I wanted to tweak things and since I enjoyed them so much I had to have them again ASAP. I first had taco seasoning in the burger mix. While it was good we were remarking that it was more like a ‘Taco Burger’ than a ‘Nacho Burger’. I guess they are similar so no foul there but I decided I wanted to mellow that flavor out so I took it out. Feel free to add it in if you would like. As well, one we ate these burgers with jarred salsa and another with pico de gallo. Both ways are really good and I’d say just go with your personal preference.

You can’t go wrong here. I swear since I picked these black olives off of mine the moment I was done taking pictures (we just aren’t friends) and still enjoyed it so just do what you want, just make sure you have a lot of tortilla chips on there. You need that crunch!!!!!!

Nacho Cheeseburger

Makes 4 burgers

Ingredients

  • 24 ounces of ground beef (80/20)
  • 10 oz of canned blacked beans
  • 12 oz of shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 burger buns (I suggest Kaiser rolls)
  • salsa, such as pico de gallo
  • tortilla chips
  • 1 avocado, pit removed, thinly sliced/guacamole
  • aproximately 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • sliced black olives
  • pickled jalapenos slices

Process

  1. Combine the ground beef, black beans, 1/2 of the cheese, and salt and pepper. Form 4 equally sized patties as round as your buns.
  2. Prepare the grill by cleaning the grill grates and preheating to ‘medium’ heat. Just prior to putting the burgers on the grill, spray the grates with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Grill the burgers over medium heat until they are half way done prior to flipping. Once you flip them put the remaining shredded cheese on the burgers and put a lid on the grill.
  4. While the burgers are cooking, grill the buns as well to toast them.
  5. When the burgers are cooked through and the cheese has melted, remove from grill and place on the toasted buns.
  6. Top the burgers with the salsa, tortilla chips, avocado, sour cream, olives, and jalapeno slices.

    Oh wow! This looks so good. Nachos are one of my favorites too! I don’t do the grilling in our household but I’m gonna try to influence it with this recipe!

    I had nachos last night (I’m obsessed with jalapenos) and I think I’m going through the Taco Bell drive thru for nachos when I go pick Penelope up from day in a few. I could totally go for a nacho burger!

    Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
