Great recipe for a chili burger with all the chili flavor right in the patty. Top it off like nachos and you have a truly delicious burger. I also have this original posted on

Top Review by French Tart

Malcolm says these are TEN star Shadows - and I think I agree with him! What an AWSOME burger!! The combo of the chilli and beer with the beef was nothing short of a miracle........and the cumin was the finishing touch. We ate this with a tossed green salad and had jalapenos and grated cheddar cheese as a topping.......with toasted ciabatta bread buns - delicious! We cooked the burgers in a griddle pan on top of the woodburning stove, as the weather was very windy outside. I will be making these again SOON and hope to take photos next time! Wonderful recipe - 10 star! FT:-)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ground beef, onion, chili powder, cumin, lime juice, beer or Sangria, garlic and oregano together in a bowl.
  2. Shape into 12 patties.
  3. Grill over hardwood coals (I use lump charcoal, better flavor than if you use smoke chips) until done to your preference.
  4. Serve on hamburger buns or hard rolls with your choice of toppings.
