Queso Bacon Burgers with Avocado Salsa

Queso Bacon Burgers with Avocado Salsa

Burgers are awesome.

These burgers are even awesomer.  (Awesomer is my new word that is not actually a word)

Burgers encased with bacon & roasted jalapenos, dripping with a queso cheese sauce & loaded with an avocado salsa.  

Can I offer you a napkin to wipe the drool from your chin?

In a skillet (cast iron if you have one), cook the jalapenos in a little bit of oil until softened & charred.  Transfer to a bowl, cover, & let cool slightly. Remove & discard the skin, stem, & seeds – and finely chop the chiles.

Fry the bacon until crispy & reserve 1 tablespoon of bacon fat.


  • In a large bowl, combine the reserved bacon fat, half of the chopped chiles, & crumbled bacon.  Then mix in the ground beef.  Form into 6 patties & season with salt & pepper.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the crumbled queso fresco, mayo, buttermilk, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, & the remaining chiles.  Season with salt & pepper – refrigerate.
