Tex-Mex Burgers Texotic-Mexotic Burgers created by Chilicat

These were created by the Exotic Epicureans for Zaar World Tour 03. A team of 9, we each picked one ingredient from 1 region of the US our the Southwest. Making an all American Burger using these ingredients. Kumquat the Cat's friend-lime that brings freshness, JanetC-KY-pepper jack cheese or Queso blanco a creaminess and richness, Alskann-Texas sweet onion made smoky, lucid501-beef just ask any Texan, Anme-corn for sweetness and lightens the burgers, free-free-avocado a rich creaminess, acerast-refried beans for health and to help hold the burger to the chips, Midwest Maven-tortilla chips and myself-chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for heat and smokiness. We stepped out of the box and went for these cute, spicy, smoky, sweet, mini-mini burgers that we placed on tortilla chips adhered with just a tad of refried beans topped with a tad of sour cream, tomato and avocado salsa and chipotle Caramelized onions. Oh as for the burgers they are filled with cheese, corn, chipolte peppers and cumin both give a great smokiness creating this Finger Licking Treats. You can use TVP (Texturized Vegetable Protein (TVP), also known as Textured Soy Protein (TSP) is a meat substitute made from defatted soy flour, a by-product of making soybean oil. It is quick to cook, high in protein, and low in fat.)in place of the beef! To rehydrate, 1 2/3 TVP add 1 1/3 cup boiling water. For the COOKING equivalent of 1 pound of hamburger meat, but equals 89 grams of protein or 12.7 protein blocks. By comparrison: 1 pound of hamburger has: 10.7 blocks in regular ground beef 11.2 block in lean ground beef 12 blocks of protein in extra lean ground beef

    I cannot begin to tell you how amazingly good these are!! I have had this recipe saved forever and I have always eyed it to make. I finally got all the ingredients to make it and OMG it is just amazing in flavor and such a yummy finger food. It is rather time consuming, but oh so worth it! I used the scoop style tortilla chips and went exactly by the recipe except for the salsa, I didn't use the tequila and I adding chopped onion and 2-3 cloves of minced garlic, salt and pepper, the way I like it. I did cook the mini burgers for 10 min. then set the oven on broil for 5 more minutes to get the tops toasty and drained off the fat. I do recommend to let the burgers cool a little first before assembling because when you place them on the tortillas while they are hot and juicy, the tortilla chips get soggy fast. I had leftovers the next day, and wanted to assemble them fast and left off the refried beans, and they were still delicious this way and you didn't miss them. So next time I may skip the step of the beans since it added so much extra time during assembling. I think this recipe would be an amazing recipe for regular burgers as well! Thank you so much for the recipe! It is an absolute favorite that I will make again and again!

    Tried this recipe last night and it was a huge hit!! Super yummy!! Although I love Mexican-inspired flavors, this was my first time using adobo sauce....and I have to say, I didn't know what I was missing. Those onions were pretty much the best part and I can't wait to incorporate them in other dishes. Instead of chips, I sliced some hard rolls into about 1/2 think slices then used a circular cookie cutter close to the size of the hamburgers and did a nice little stack. Definitely try this recipe, you don't be disappointed.
