Mexican Burgers With Avocado & Fried Eggs

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

These are savory, spicy burgers that are made even tastier with spicy mayo, avocado slices, a fried egg and pico de gallo. Add cheese if you like, or maybe even bacon. I'm sure these would taste great if cooked on a grill, but I pan-fry them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the first 10 ingredients (cumin through onion) in a food processor and puree. Add half of the ground beef, and pulse to combine everything well.
  2. Put the rest of the ground beef and one tablespoon of cilantro in a large bowl. Add the beef-spice mixture and stir to combine well. Form this mixture into four burger patties.
  3. Mix the remaining cilantro with mayo, hot sauce, and lime juice. Add salt & pepper if desired- I usually don't. Set aside.
  4. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties, flipping once, for about 12-15 minutes, or until desired doneness.
  5. Just before the meat is done, melt butter in a separate pan, then crack the eggs into it and cook until whites are firm and yolks are runny, about 3-5 minutes.
  6. Spread the mayo on both inner sides of the buns, then place down avocado slices, meat, fried egg, and pico de gallo. Serve!

This burger is really filled with flavor. I didn't use the fried eggs but everything else went in. I must say that it very filling but you'll love every bite. I especially loved the avocado. Nwxt time I'll use a couple of tooth picks stuck in the finished burger as all that good stuff made it kind of hard to hold together (and don't forget the napkins). :D

This is a great Mexican-style burger! Loved the avocado, pico de gallo, the cilantro mayo and the Mexican seasonings -- all are necessities for a great Tex-Mex burger. The fried egg was a good addition; however, I would probably leave it out next time. I had forgotten how much I love homemade burgers -- this recipe will definitely be on my go-to list. Made for the PRMR tag, June, 2013.
