El Loco Taco Burger

So what do I put here? Hello? Hello? Okay well I guess I'll just tell you about my entry. This recipe was adapted from one of my stromboli recipes that my family of 7 loves. While this burger appears to be a rather plain, it only takes one bite to taste the explosion of flavor inside. The gas grill I use to create my burgers is a Brinkman Pro grill.

Ingredients 

Inside mixture:
1/2 c sliced black olives
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 TBSP cilantro, minced
1/4 C green onions, chopped
1/2 c roma tomatoes, chopped
Patties:
3 lbs Ground round
Taco Paste
mix:
12 tsp taco seasoning 
6 TBSP water
6 seeded hamburger buns
1/4 c Colavita olive oil
2 large foil squares.
Brinkman Pro grill preheated to 300 degrees.

Instructions 

Mix together black olives, shredded cheddar cheese, cilantro, green onion and roma tomatoes in a bowl. Set aside. Divide meat into 12 - 4 oz. balls. Flatten out each ball into patties. You will use two patties to make A burger. Take first patty, place on work space, add 4 TBSP of inside mixture on top. Take another patty and put it on top of 1st patty with mixture. Carefully but firmly pinch edges of burger all the way around to seal in mixture. Cook burger on a preheated 300 degree gas grill for 4 - 5 minutes per side until light grill marks are visible. While burgers are cooking mix together 12 tsp of taco seasoning mix with 6 TBSP of water to make a paste. Remove burgers from grill. Place them on large square of foil. Add 1 1/2 tsp of taco paste on top of burger, spread around with back of spoon until well coated. Flip burgers over on foil add 1 1/2 tsp of taco paste on this side of burgers. Add another foil square on top of burgers and crimp edges all the way around to form foil pocket. Put foil pocket back on grill and cook for another 10 - 12 minutes. While burgers are cooking brush bun tops and bottoms with olive oil. Cook on grill until lightly toasted. Remove burgers and buns from grill and assemble and enjoy.
