Ingredients

  • Burger:
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 medium yellow onion finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves grated or pressed
  • 2 Tbsp minced cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • Salt
  • Toppings:
  • 4 small flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese mix
  • 1/4 cup canned corn drained
  • 1 large jalapeno pepper seeded and sliced
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Chipotle Mayo:
  • 2 Tbsp mayo
  • Salt
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • Dash of paprika

Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients for the burger in a medium mixing bowl and mix very well, until all ingredients are incorporated throughout.
  2. Preheat skillet over medium heat and add a little bit of vegetable oil.
  3. Form two burger patties and try to get them wide so they fit on the tortillas. (Remember that beef will shrink as it cooks.)
  4. Cook on both sides util burgers reach desired temperature. (Prepare your toppings while burgers are cooking.) Take out the patties and set aside.
  5. Drain burger juice out of the pan and add four flour tortillas. (Or do two at a time if they don't all fit in the pan. Prepare bottoms and then tops.) Divide cheese among all four tortillas, evenly. Cook over medium-high heat until tortillas are crispy and cheese is melted. Take off heat.
  6. Add corn to two of the tortillas. These are the bottoms.
  7. Take bottom tortillas and place them on the serving dishes. Place burgers on top and then top off with jalapeno peppers, tomato slices and avocado slices.
  8. Mix chipotle mayo in a small bowl and add it to either a squeeze bottle or a small zip-lock bag. Drizzle mayo mixture over the burger.
  9. Top off with the other tortillas.
  10. (It's easier to eat this awesome, juicy burger if you cut it in half.)
