Southwestern Taco Burger

Southwestern Taco Burger - Loaded with southwestern seasonings and topped with corn salsa, this Southwestern Taco Burger is a fun way to mix up burger night!


For the Burgers:
1 pound ground beef
1 egg
1 clove garlic, diced
2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup bread crumbs, or finely crumbled saltine crackers
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
pinch of cayenne pepper
For the Toppings:
4 hamburger buns
1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup salsa
4 slices pepper jack cheese
pickled jalapeños
1 avocado, sliced

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
In a medium bowl, combine all of the Burger ingredients (ground beef, egg, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, breadcrumbs, chili powder, paprika, onion powder, cumin, pepper, salt and cayenne pepper). Mix until well combined.
Shape mixture into 4 patties. (Tip: Make the patties slightly thinner in the center. This will give the burger a better shape once grilled.)
Grill burgers on medium-high heat until fully cooked, flipping once after 4-5 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the corn and salsa. Stir until well combined.
Assemble the burgers with pepper jack cheese, corn salsa, pickled jalapenos and sliced avocado.
