Southwestern Burger

Prep Time 15 mins

Serves 4-6

Spice up your regular burger routine with earthy spices like chipotle, cumin and garlic and top with avocado for a southwestern twist on an American classic. 


For the burger

• 1 tsp ground cumin

• 1 tsp chipotle chli powder

• 1 tsp salt

• 2 cloves garlic

• 1/2 cup finely chopped onion

• 1 and 1/2 pounds ground beef 


• avocado

• tomato slices (Try our local hydroponic tomatoes from Tomato King!)

• monterey jack or pepper jack cheese

• leaf lettuce

• pickled jalepeños (optional) 

• store-bought cortido (optional)

Don't forget the buns! Rudi's hamburger buns are on sale through memorial day weekend!


• Combine cumin, chipotle, salt, garlic, onion and ground beef in large mixing bowl. Shape in to 4 patties.

• Grill patties over high heat for 5 minutes. Flip over and grill for 2 to 3 minutes on the other side. 

• If desired, place cheese slices on burger to melt chees. This is a great time to toast the buns on the grill as well. 

• When burgers are finished, put patties on buns and top with assorted toppings.
