Cowboy Cheeseburgers

September 18, 2013

Instead of celebrating National Cheeseburger Day with a classic burger, try these cowboy cheeseburgers.  A richly seasoned beef patty is topped with mozzarella cheese and wrapped into a tortilla with fresh cilantro sprigs, tomatoes and taco sauce.

Cowboy Cheeseburger


1 pound Extra-lean ground beef
1 small Onion, chopped fine
1 tablespoon Fresh jalapeno chile, minced
1 teaspoon Ground coriander
1 teaspoon Ground cumin
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Pepper, fresh ground
1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
4 Tortillas
4 Tomato slices
Cliantro sprigs
1/4 cup Commerical taco sauce

In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, onion, jalapeno, coriander, cumin, salt, and pepper; form into burgers of equal size about 1/4 inch thick without compacting the meat. Grill or broil, 4" from source of heat, for 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare patties. Place the mozzarella cheese on the top center of each patty. Cook for another minute and until cheese melts. Serve each patty on a warmed 8" flour tortilla, topped with a tomato slice, cilantro sprigs, and taco sauce.
