The Gringo Southwest Burger is my version of what would traditionally be called a South of the Border Burger. Most of the major ingredients are inspired by Southwest and Mexican dishes but I incorporated a few non-traditional flavors to create the Gringo Southwest Burger!
In a bowl, mix together a pound of 80/20 ground chuck and a pound of ground sirloin. Then add 3 tablespoons of Weber's Smokey Onion Burger season and 1/4 cup of chipotle mustard. Make sure all the ingredients are mixed in and evenly dispersed. Form your patties and make them as flat as you can since they are going to be stacked. Make them about 1/2 inch thick.
Guacamole (that's a hard G)
– 1 mashed giant Florida avocado
– 1/4 cup of diced tomatoes
– 1/4 cup of diced red onions
– 1/4 cup of diced green bell pepper
– 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
– 1 teaspoon of onion powder
– 1 teaspoon of chipotle powder
– 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
Mix all these ingredients together and put it in the refrigerator until you're ready to use it.
– 1 cup of diced tomatoes
– 1/4 cup of diced sweet onions
– 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro leaves
– one diced jalapeno
– two tablespoons of fresh lime juice
Set you grill up for direct grilling. Place your patties on the grill and close the lid. Grill for about 3 minutes on each side (depending on how you like it and the thickness of your patty). Before you take them off, melt a slice of pepper jack cheese on the patties and toast your buns.
Spread Guacamole on the bottom bun and add your first patty. Spoon some on pico and add another patty. Spread more guacamole on the second patty and top with another patty. Spoon more pico on top of the third patty. Then top with a fried sunny side up over medium egg. Finally, spread chipotle mustard on the top bun. You should now have a 6 to 8 inch burger tower that you're going to have to figure out how to eat!!
