    Bergy's Note:

    This is a very tasty burger! You have to be careful when cooking them - without egg and fill they are delicate. Add whatever other toppings you want. You need good sized buns for these burgers to hold all the condiments

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef, more if you want larger burgers
    • 6 tablespoons refried beans
    • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded, deveined and finely chopped (or milder)
    • 4 tablespoons sweet onions, chopped
    • 4 tablespoons hot salsa
    • 4 slices mozzarella cheese (or other cheese)
    • 8 mushrooms, cleaned & sliced
    • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced

    • 1 medium tomato, washed and chopped
    • 4 slices crisp fried bacon, crumbled
    • 4 long Italian rolls (or regular hamburger buns)
    • salt & pepper


    1. 1
      Divide the hamburger into 4 equal portions and make two patties from each portion (if using Italian buns make the patties oblong to fit the bun) On 4 of the 8 patties put a tbsp of refied beans, sprinkle on some jalapeno pepper and a tbsp of onions, salt& pepper Place the second pattie on top and firmly seal.
    2. 2
      Really pat them so they won't fall apart while cooking.
    3. 3
      If BBQing I recommend that you use a stir fry pan or use a solid grill to cook them in/on to ensure they do not end up as the fuel for the BBQ.
    4. 4
      These burgers are delicate because there is no filler in them.
    5. 5
      Or pan fry When the burgers are cooked on one side (apprx 6 minutes) flip and.
    6. 6
      add mushrooms, cover with a lid and finish cooking.
    7. 7
      Slit the buns and start toasting one side, when browned slightly add cheese and continue heating until the cheese has melted Assemble the Burger, Butter the bun if you wish, put in the bacon& mushrooms then the burger, top with the salsa, avacado& sour cream.

      This was pretty good, but quite a bit of work for Tom, he thought. Next time, we might try mixing the center mixture into the meat, still this was amazingly good and I refuse to look at the fat/calorie count. *laugh*

      We were in the mood for Tex-Mex, but wanted to grill out, and this recipe worked for both! Great twist on a burger. I used a grill plate to keep the burgers together, and it worked well. I served mine on jalapeno-sourdough buns and added just a hint of taco seasoning to the meat because I was using lean beef and I wanted to give it a bit of flavor. I made sure to make the 2 patties very thin and consistent in thickness so they would cook through evenly, and it worked. These were fantastic! The beens in the center really make for a messy, fun to eat burger. Thanks Bergy!
