Enchilada Burger Recipe
If you love burgers and like spicy, this Enchilada Burger Recipe will be your new favorite. I used Certified Angus Beef® brand beef and seasoned it with taco seasoning (homemade recipe below). I further enhanced the Enchilada essence by smothering it with spicy enchilada sauce (homemade recipe below) and creamy cheese.
Fresh pico de gallo (homemade recipe below), lettuce, and avocado slices round out the toppings on this creative burger. It’s fresh and filling and the perfect grilled summer burger!
I personally live the different flavors and textures of this Enchilada Burger Recipe. It would be perfect for entertaining this summer. You can make the burgers up a few days in advance and freeze them. Take them out of the freezer the morning of your cookout and allow them to thaw.
