If you love guacamole, you’ll love these Mexican Guacamole Burgers. They’ve got Mexican seasoning baked inside and homemade guacamole on top!
You know how we’re crazy for burgers. We load them with bacon, stuff them with cheese and wrap them around butter (say what??!).
But we also love Mexican food. Any time I get to put two favorites together? It’s a win! Today we’re sharing one of our favorite summer grilling recipes. There’s just nothing like burgers on the grill. Juicy, tender beef loaded with just about any kind of toppings.
Have you ever had the guacamole burger at Red Robin or Steak & Shake? They’re one of my favorite things to order. But they are always better made at home.
These Mexican Guacamole Burgers are a simple recipe. It’s based on another of my favorite grilling recipes, Mexican Steak & Avocado Salsa. We took that Mexican seasoning and mixed it with ground beef, then loaded the burgers with a lot of homemade guacamole.
It’s easy to pull these burgers together.
Burgers need to be cooked until the internal center is 160 degrees. Use an internal thermometer and be sure to test your burgers for doneness.
While the burgers are cooking, you can make the homemade guacamole. Guacamole is fairly easy to make, but does take a few minutes to chop up the veggies. This is our favorite guacamole recipe.
Guacamole is best done the same day you want to eat it. If you need to make it in advance, try this trick for keeping your guacamole from turning brown found at the kitchn!
By the way…Do you know how to choose a ripe avocado? We just started eating them regularly last year, and I’ll admit that I had no idea how to know if an avocado was ripe.
Here’s some hints for you from Hass Avocados:
After you have the guacamole made up, just add some Pepper Jack cheese slices to the burgers, slice up some tomatoes and throw lettuce leaves on a burger.
And if you’ve never tried pretzel buns with burgers, you need to. I surprised the kids by buying these pretzel buns and I definitely got the “Mom of the Day” award. There’s just something about soft pretzels that makes my kids’ eyes go wide, and when you get a soft pretzel in a bun? Good times are ahead.
If you have leftover burgers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You’ll want to eat them within 3-4 days of cooking.
With Mexican burgers, you’ll definitely want to add some tortilla chips and homemade salsa. Even a side of pico de gallo would be delicious.
Or you can always go the traditional route with baked beans, potato salad and broccoli salad.
This is my kind of burger! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!
