Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs Ground Beef (80% lean)
  • 5 tsp Tex Mex or Taco Seasoning (use this blend)
  • 3/4 tsp Salt (see note)
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Cooking Oil (like grape seed, vegetable, or avocado oil)
  • 4 slices Cheese (pepper jack, mild cheddar, or Colby jack)
  • 4 Hamburger Buns
  • 1/2 cup Guacamole
  • Other burger toppings like sliced red onions, tomatoes, lettuce

Instructions

  • Combine beef, seasoning, salt (if using), and black pepper.
  • Gently mix them together (using your hands works best) just until everything is blended.
  • Form into 4 even patties.
  • Gently press the center of each patty so that there is a slight indent in the middle (this will help the burgers to stay flat as they cook).
  • Prepare an outdoor grill or, if cooking inside, heat a grill pan or skillet over medium heat.
  • Brush grill or pan with cooking oil and add burger patties.
  • Sear on both sides until burgers are cooked to your liking. In the last minute of cooking, top each burger patty with a slice of cheese.
  • Set burger patties aside and cover to keep warm.
  • Toast hamburger buns.
  • Assemble burgers by filling hamburger buns with guacamole, burger patties, and other toppings.

Notes

Only add additional salt if there is no salt included in the Tex Mex / taco seasoning you use to flavor the burgers.
Hamburger patties freeze well. Just form the patties, and freeze them flat on a piece of parchment or wax paper. Once frozen, transfer the burger patties to a plastic freezer bag, pressing out as much air as possible. Freeze for up to 6 months. Defrost completely before cooking.
