The Kitchen Tourists' Best Tex-Mex Burger!

The Kitchen Tourists' Best Tex-Mex Burger! created by Shelby Jo

Sizzling with flavour! This Tex-Mex Burger has a lot of taste appeal and the visual isn't half-bad, either. Your mouth will explode with the flavours of spicy-hot Tex-Mex cuisine, tempered with a guacamole dressing. Members of the Kitchen Tourists suggested ingredients suitable for this delectable treat and so: Ed&Theresa - avocado; Muffin Goddess - lime; MA HIKER - hot sauce; fluffernutter - chipotle in adobo; Melody Ashcraft - tomato; Mandy from Oz - scallions; Laffer - cilantro; ms.susan - chili powder; TansGram - monterey jack cheese; and I provided the pickled jalapeno rings as per Recipe #170474. I'm sure you'll agree that these ingredients all came together sublimely to make the best burger ever. I would also like to thank Rita L, without whom this burger would just not have been possible. If Rita hadn't sent me a tin of chipotle in adobo last Fall, and if I hadn't frozen what I hadn't used then, this burger would just not have been possible! THANK YOU RITA!!!

  • Top with cheese slices and cook, covered, for 1 minute, to melt cheese.

    Good burger, just served with cheese and chilies, no bun and Texas caviar.

    Fabulous says it all. We only used the hamburger and the guacamole (both exactly as prescribed) and it was plenty spicy enough for us. Served the hamburger on the plate with a simple spinach salad and let each person add the guacamole sauce as desired. By leaving out the bun and cheese, we saved some calories and the mess of the guacamole squeezing out.

    This was a great burger. I didn't have monterey jack cheese so just used American instead. I also added more chipotle peppers than the recipe called for. This was a great way to start the grillin' season off! I will definitely make these again!

    Great burger. As others have said, the dressing makes this. I used less chili powder to cater for our heat sufferers. Chipotle chiles do not exist in Australia, so I followed Jewelies hint. Made and enjoyed for Zaar World Tour.
