Mexican Burger Bar


2 pounds (80% lean) ground beef
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
8 slices (1 ounce each) Colby & Monterey Jack cheese blend
8 Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split

Mexican Sandwich Spread

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons Pantry Southwestern Seasoning Mix

Mexican Toppers

2 medium tomatoes, sliced
1 large avocado, peeled and sliced
1 cup pickled jalapeno pepper slices, drained

For burgers, crumble ground beef into a bowl. Finely chop onion. Add onion, Worcesteshire sauce, salt and black pepper to ground beef; mix gently but thoroughly. Form mixture into 8 round patties, 1/2 inch thick. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to grill.

For Mexican sandwich spread, combine mayonnaise, sour cream and seasoning mix in a bowl; mix until well blended. Cover and refrigerate.

For Mexican toppers, slice tomatoes. Slice avocado. Place toppers in individual serving bowls; cover and refrigerate.

When ready to grill, prepare grill for direct cooking over medium coals. Place patties on grid of grill. Grill, uncovered, 11-13 minutes or until centers are no longer pink, turning once. About 1 minute before burgers are done, place cheese slices on top.

Meanwhile, place roll halves, cut side down, on grid of grill. Grill 1-2 minutes or until rolls are lightly toasted. Place burgers in rolls. Serve with spread and toppers.

Cook’s Tips: Ground beef patties should be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 160°F (medium doneness). The meat thermometer is a helpful tool in determining meat doneness. Insert the thermometer into the side of the burgers about 2 inches to get an accurate temperature reading.

For juicy burgers, avoid pressing or flattening ground beef patties with barbecue turner while grilling.
