This is the ultimate burger experience in my opinion. It’s a mashed up version of two glorious eatables, the cheeseburger and the burrito. I love to keep this simple but truly anything goes. I like making this as a ground beef cheeseburger because I think it is a better taste experience. If you are going to make a burger it should be about the burger.
This is also easier to prepare and will accommodate those who need a well done burger, something that annihilates a burger in my opinion. I make this in my cast iron skillet, which makes for a super delicious juicy meat mixture. I add a bit of heat, with some chipotle chili powder, but I keep the integrity of the all American burger. I top the meat with some pico de gallo, the tomato component and the onion, along with some sliced jalapenos and dill pickle, as well as my chipotle ketcupaise and this is a thing that could catch on. The merging of two great cultures!
If you are looking for something fun, this is a nice change to Taco Tuesday! I urge you to give this a try!
Cheeseburger Stuffed Burritos
The ultimate mash-up cheeseburger and burrito, that is simple to prepare and tastes truly amazing
The onions are from the homemade pico de gallo. See recipe link below. There is plenty of cheese in here, it doesn’t look cheesy but I promise this is cheesy goodness right there.
