Queso Burger

I am all about a yummy burger and this Queso Burger is everything!

It all starts with the queso

What makes this burger super special is the combo of your favorite mexican inspired yummies and a traditional burger.  the star for me is the Queso.  Growing up in Texas I have been blessed with amazing Mexican/Tex Mex food my whole life.  One of the staples of tex max is queso, aka cheese dip.  After many attempts I have found one that I love and I can make at home in no time.

This queso blanco is so good and perfect on this burger or at your next party!

Now let’s talk burger!

For this burger I went with a 80/20 blend of ground chuck.  If you wanted to use a 90/10 blend or 70/30 blend go for it, just make sure to adjust cooking time as needed.  The leaner the meat the faster it will cook.  

I used 1 1/2 pounds of meat and made 4 patties out of the meat.  When I made these I did not make a side dish, so this was the whole meal.  If you were going to have some sides, such as a salad or this Mexican Cauliflower Rice, then you could make them smaller.

Now for the toppings!

First I topped the burger with bacon…I always have bacon in my refrigerator cooked and ready to go so I just added a slice to each burger (after I reheated it a bit).  

Next came the queso.   Then I added a little sour cream, some guacamole and some chopped tomatoes.  Not only was it pretty but is was SO GOOD!

The beef was seasoned perfectly and so juicy (I only cook mine to medium rare) and then you add in all the amazing flavors from the toppings and you get a bite that everyone is sure to LOVE.  I have been craving this burger ever since I made it…and it will be back on the menu this week.
