Green Salsa Burger


This week has been a crazy one.  Both my kids have been getting over being sick, I have not been sleeping well and the hubby has been working crazy hours.  So, getting dinner on the table has needed to be quick for me this week.

These burgers are so easy and super yummy.  Who doesn’t love a burger?!  It’s a classic.  I had some salsa and spiced onion made from a previous dish and it worked so nice as an additive for this share.

This one is spicy! 😉

What You Will Need:

  • olive oil
  • 1-1 1/2 lb of ground beef
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • Chihuahua Cheese
  • sliced avocado
  • 4 hamburger buns

Green Salsa

  • 6 tomatillos
  • 1/4 of an onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 4 Serrano peppers or jalapeno
  • Juice of a lime
  • salt

Spiced Peppers (Previously used in my Pork Tortas Recipe)

  • 1/2 Onion, sliced
  • Habanero pepper, minced, ribs and seeds removed
  • Juice of a lime
  • Salt

First, prepare the spiced onion.  Add sliced onions and minced Habanero to a bowl. Add the juice of the lime and a pinch of salt to taste and stir.  Refrigerate.

Then prepare the Green Salsa.  Peel and clean the tomatillos.  Add them to a small pot, cover with water and boil to they burst about 8-10 minutes.  Add them to a blender with onion, garlic, Serranos (I like the heat so I leave the seeds in but go ahead and remove them to get rid of the extra heat) lime juice and a heavy pinch of salt and blend.

Now, take your ground beef and add to a bowl, season with salt & pepper and Worcestershire sauce.  Combine and separate into 4 parts.  Work each portion into paddies with a pinch in the center, season both sides again with salt & pepper.  Heat a frying pan with a light coat of oil.  Add meat and cook for 5 minutes, flip, cook an additional 2-3 minutes, add cheese and cook 3 minutes more. Remove.

Note:  this makes a medium well to well burger, if you like them more medium shave off a couple minutes 🙂
