Hunk of Meat Monday: Fajita Burgers

If you are looking for a way to use onions and peppers you have growing in your garden, this burger is a must make. We love our a fajita burger! And I am sure you are shocked to hear we love something with Mexican flavors.

When I saw these Southwestern Grill Burgers from a Southern Belle Dishes on Decor, I remembered I had made something similar this summer.

Start with a pound of ground beef. Get it thawed out if it is frozen.

Get a one once package of fajita seasoning mix and put one tablespoon on the beef. Mix together with your hands and make four patties from the beef.

Get your burgers ready to hit the grill and start on your toppings.

Slice up one onion and get them carmelizing in a half a stick of butter.

Slice up one bell pepper and add to the onions when they have begun to brown.

Add the remaining fajita seasoning to the peppers and onions when you add the peppers to the mix.

Get your burgers on the grill at this point. Once you have flipped the burgers and they are a minute or two from done, add cheese.

I recommend adding pepper jack cheese:)

Get your burgers on the buns of your choice and then add the onions and peppers. I also spread a garlic aioli my on the buns. Since I made the aioli, I figure I might as well bake up some sweet potato fries too.

The burgers are killer!!
