Nacho Burger

Something about the cold weather makes me want a burger more often than normal! Last night I made a nacho burger! It’s just a traditional burger with a little twist.

Ingredients:

馃敼8-10oz of lean ground beef

馃敼2 buns

馃敼1 jalape帽o

馃敼2 oz light cream

馃敼2 Russet potatoes

馃敼2 oz shredded cheddar

馃敼2 tbsp taco seasoning

馃敼1 oz tortilla strips

馃敼1 egg

Recipe:

Heat oven to 450 degrees

Cut potatoes into wedges and place on a prepared baking sheet. Brush with olive oil. Season with 1tbsp taco seasoning and salt and pepper. Place in oven and cook for 23-25 minutes or until lightly browned

In a mixing bowl combine beef, egg, 1 tbsp taco seasoning and half the cheese. Form into two patties.

Dice jalape帽o into rounds or smaller if you prefer and set aside

Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to non stick pan. Cook patties until desired temp. 4-6 minutes each side.

Wipe pan clean used to cook burgers. Pour in cream and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove from burner and mix in remaining cheese.

Plate burger with cheese on top of patty then top with jalape帽o and tortilla strips.

I like to mix up ketchup and sriracha as a spicy dipping sauce for the potato wedges

Enjoy! 馃嵈
