Inspired by a leftover jar of our sweet and robust Black Bean & Corn Salsa, my mission was set, to incorporate the leftover salsa and create a burger recipe that would send our taste buds into overload. Mission accomplished! This burger was a huge hit with our family! Are you salivating yet? Hang in there!
Aside from the tasty toppings, one key to this delicious burger is no-doubt, the freshly ground meat. A few years back, our friends introduced us to the idea of homemade ground meat, and it has truly taken our burgers to the next level. Ask your grocery store butcher to grind the meat for you, or grind it at home. We purchased a food grinder attachment for our mixer, but there are plenty of other meat grinding options if you don't have a mixer.
Seriously consider adding this palate-tantalizing recipe to your favorites. You will not be disappointed and your family will thank you! These would also make rockin' sliders for your next Game Day menu, everything the same, except smaller.
Serve these burgers with our Cilantro Lime Corn on the Cob or our Herbed Sweet Potato Fries and our Best Darn Colesalw for a complete meal.
If grinding your own meat, cut the meat into 1-inch strips or pieces. Grind the meat with a meat grinder into a large bowl (you can certainly use store-bought ground meat). Add the egg, Cherchies® Grilling Rub & Seasoning Blend, and Worcestershire sauce to the meat. Mix until just incorporated (meat tends to toughen up the more it is handled). Divide the meat into 4 equal portions (more if you would like smaller burgers).
Lightly oil the grill with cooking spray or oil. Turn the grill onto high, then low after a few minutes. Make an indent in the center of the burgers. This allows the burger to cook evenly.
