Fajita Burgers from Good Cheap Eats

Burgers are a huge hit at our house. I know that I can get instant approval from everyone at the table when I make hamburgers.

They’re good with eating them at restaurants, too. Honestly, I can count on two hands all the great restaurants in our area that serve delicious and creative burgers. I’m thinking San Diego might be a sanctuary for folks who love burgers and small craft beers.

Anyway…. back to delicious and creative burgers. I love when burgers are fancy. I’m a little partial to certain ingredients like bleu, gorgonzola, swiss, cheddar, and pepper jack. Basically all the fancy and unfancy cheeses.

However, could I make a delicious and creative burger without the cheese?

Why yes, yes I could. Meet the Fajita Burger!

The Fajita Burger is just what it sounds like: a Mexican-spiced burger topped with fajita vegetables, and a trio of toppings to choose from: guacamole, salsa, or spicy. It’s flavorful and fun, a great way to spice up your backyard barbecues this summer.

One of the great things about this burger recipe is that all the toppings fit a Whole 30, paleo, or dairy-free diet. Be sure to serve it bunless, and you’re good to go.

    These sound delicious and I will be trying them. 2 questions. Would it be better to mix the taco seasoning in the meat so that flavor is through the whole burger rather than just sprinkling on top? I’ve never seen chipotle mayo. Is this something I can mix myself? Thanks.

    I just wanted to take a minute and say “thanks” for all of the inspiration you have given me over the years. I don’t have a blog, but I wrote a guest post for my Sister-in-Law, and referenced you and your Eat the Pantry challenge. http://themerrillproject.blogspot.com/2016/04/what-to-do-when-ends-dont-meet-part-2.html
    You have really helped me as I have tried to become a better and more wise home cook. Thanks!

    I made these burgers over the past Easter weekend. HUGE hit! Even my picky eater loved them. It was a fishmama weekend from burgers to chicken & green beans to empty tomb cake. We think you are THE BEST! Thank you!!!
