Taquitos Supreme Burgers w/ Caramba Sauce
I started making these last year, because I enjoy Mexican food so much. Seemed ideal, my two favorite foods, Burgers and Mexican. I now pronounce you, Taquitos Supreme Burgers.
3 Tb. oil
2 c. onion, sliced in thin slivers
2 c. bell pepper, sliced in thin slivers
3 jalapenos, sliced in thin slivers
3 Tb. mayonnaise
1/2 tsp hot sauce
3 Tb. taco sauce
4 oz. can diced green chiles
1 1/2 lbs. ground sirloin
3/4 tsp. sea salt
3/4 tsp. ground pepper
3/4 tsp. chili powder
3/4 tsp. ground cumin
3/4 c. jack or jalapeno jack cheese, grated
3 oz. cheddar cheese (1/2 oz. per burger)
6 large flour tortillas, warmed in foil
Preheat grill to medium high heat.
Saute oil, onion, bell peppers & jalapeno in grill proof pan stirring often until softened and starting to caramelize. Keep warm in foil.
In small bowl mix with a wisk, mayo, hot sauce, taco sauce and green chiles. Set aside for flavors to marry. Refrigerate any leftovers or if the outside temperature is too hot.
Separate meat into 6 portions. Flatten out to about 1/2 inch on waxed paper. Sprinkle each with sea salt, pepper, chile powder and cumin. Spread down the middle of each, 2 Tb. of grated jack cheese. Pull ends and sides together and roll and secure well into a "tubular" or sausage shape. You don't want the cheese to sneak out.
Cook on medium high heat on all sides, about 7 to 8 minutes total. Towards the end of the cooking time place 1/2 oz. of cheddar cheese on each. Set off direct heat, to let cheese melt and meat rest.
Evenly spread the tortillas with a couple Tbs. of Caramba sauce and sauted vegetable mixture, Place meat in the middle and roll up burrito style.
These are great just the way they are.
All you need is a great glass of Sutter Home wine!
