Nacho Mama’s Burger (The Smoky Spicy Creamy Crunchy Burger with Bacon)

This is the ultimate nacho burger...cheese, guacamole, bacon, and a super moist 1/2 pound sirloin patty. Need I say more.

Ingredients 

Smokin’ Hot Chipotle Cheese Spread
2 tablespoons pureed chipotle peppers with adobo sauce
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
½ cup shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
Cool & Creamy Guacamole
2 avocados, peeled and diced
1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
2 Roma tomato, seeded and finely chopped
¼ teaspoon Red Pepper Season Salt
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 ½ tablespoons fresh-squeezed lime juice
Grilled Bacon & Sautéed Onions, Peppers, Corn and Garlic
6 slices lean thick cut hickory smoked bacon, cut in half
1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
½ red pepper, finely chopped
1 ear raw fresh sweet corn, cut from the cob
2 cloves garlic, minced
Patties
3 pounds ground sirloin
Prepared Sautéed Onions, Peppers, Corn and Garlic
¼ teaspoon Red Pepper Season Salt
6 hearty wheat buns
24 Cool Ranch chips

Instructions 

Preheat a gas grill to medium heat. To make the Smokin’ Hot Cheese Spread, combine pureed chipotle peppers with adobo sauce, cream cheese, and shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese in a small mixing bowl. Mix until thoroughly blended. Cover and refrigerate. To make Cool & Creamy Guacamole, mash the flesh of two ripe avocados with a fork in a medium size bowl. Add the red onion, Roma tomato, sour cream, Red Pepper Season Salt, and lime juice. Stir in all ingredients until combined. Cover and refrigerate. To make Grilled Bacon & Sautéed Onions, Peppers, Corn and Garlic, place bacon in a 10” fire-proof skillet, and place on grill rack. Turn and rearrange bacon as needed to prevent burning and cook evenly. The bacon will be crisp in about 20 minutes. Remove the bacon from the grill, cover with aluminum foil and set aside. Remove all but 2 tablespoons of bacon grease from the skillet. Add the red pepper, red onion, corn and garlic to the pan; sauté for about 5 minutes, until the vegetables soften and start to brown. Remove skillet from grill set aside. To make the patties, place ground sirloin in to a large mixing bowl. Add prepared sautéed vegetables. Mix with hands just until combined and form 6 patties about ¾ inches thick. Grill for about 8 minutes on each side. At last minute toast buns cut side down, and reheat bacon on grill. Remove burgers, buns, and bacon from grill. To assemble burger, spread Smokin’ Hot Chipotle Cheese Spread on bottom bun. Stack bacon, burger patty, and 4 Cool Ranchchips on top. Spread a generous amount of Cool & Creamy Guacamole on top bun. Place top bun on burger. Pair with Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon. Eat, drink and enjoy!
