Hi Friends!!

I made us Mexican burgers! 

We love mexican, so much so that we eat ot weekly and I am celebrating my 30th at a mexican restaurant.

These burgers came of Marc wanting a burger and me wanting mexican so I figured why not combine both?

The chilli I made for these is really different to chilli I usually make simply because I didn’t have the ingredients I usually use so I worked with what I had and the end result is much fresher than my normal chilli.

Marc doesn’t like things super spicy so I make my chilli quite mild feel free to add extra chilli if you like it hot. I added some fresh sliced jalepeno to my bruger to amp up the heat.

These are my favourite burger until I find my new favourite! Ha!

What’s your favourite burger? Is there a burger joint you love? I am always on the look out for new burgers to try!

Patties

Place the mince, salt, pepper and cheese in a bowl and mix well to combine. Divide into 4 and shape the patties. Note: these will be quite flat. Place them in the fridge while you make the chili.

Chili

Place a medium saucepan on medium high heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil, add the onion and cook stirring 2-3 minutes or until translucent. Add the garlic and the mince cook stirring until the mince is browned. Add the cumin, coriander, paprika, chili and salt and cook stirring until fragrant add the capsicum and tomatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes stirring occasionally. Pour in the tomato and Worcestershire sauces, stir well and reduce to a simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes or until thickened, remove from heat and set aside. NOTE: This recipe will make more chili than you will need for these burgers

Heat a fry pan over high heat, add 1 tablespoon oil and cook the patties for 2 minutes on each side.

Toast the brioche buns on one side. Place the base of the bun on a plate, top with lettuce leaves, sliced tomato, pattie, slice of cheese, a spoonful of chili, sliced avocado and a spoon of sour cream, add the top of the bun.
