Mexican Burgers With Avocado & Fried Eggs

"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."

Ready In:
4 burgers




  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Mix the remaining cilantro with mayo, hot sauce, and lime juice. Add salt & pepper if desired- I usually don't. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties, flipping once, for about 12-15 minutes, or until desired doneness.
  • 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.
  • Spread the mayo on both inner sides of the buns, then place down avocado slices, meat, fried egg, and pico de gallo. Serve!

  1. 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
  2. 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.
