Servings: 4

Recipe

Ingredients

1 Pound Black Canyon® Angus Ground Beef
1/4 Cup finely chopped onion
1 Jalapeño pepper, minced
2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 Cup shredded Chihuahua cheese, divided
4 Small tortillas, warmed or hamburger buns, split, toasted
Thinly sliced lettuce, chopped tomato, avocado slices, salsa, sour cream, guacamole (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine ground beef, onion, jalapeño, cilantro and 1/4 cup cheese in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.
  2. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 10 to 12 minutes turning occasionally, until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. About 3 minutes before burgers are done, top evenly with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
  3. Place burgers in tortillas or buns; season with salt and black pepper, as desired. Top with desired toppings.

    Cook's Tip:

    To grill, place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes), until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.
