Fajita Burgers take all the flavors of fajitas that you love and combine them into a delicious burger that’s perfect for any backyard barbecue!
Can I just tell you that I LOVE this burger? It is juicy, messy, tender, and full of flavor. Carl’s Jr. isn’t messing around when they say if it doesn’t get all over the place it doesn’t belong in your face.
Fajita burgers are faster than making regular burgers, and I swear they taste better. The first time I made this recipe I had meant to use regular ground beef and then forgot to buy it at the store. I had some nice flank steak and decided to give it a go. Oh baby! My eyes were opened to a whole new burger world of possibility!
I prefer to cook this on the grill because it adds a nice smoky flavor, but you can also cook this indoors in a heavy skillet. I’ve also tried a vegetarian version of this recipe using black bean burgers instead of beef. Once again, it’s also delicious. I’m in love with these things! You can also make these using regular grilled ground beef burgers and just topping them with the pepper and onion mixture. Consider adding some of the fajita spices to your ground beef mixture for an extra flavorful touch.
Are you a cheese lover? Consider the cheese option where you add some slices of pepperjack cheese. The heat from the pepper mixture should be enough to melt the cheese a bit. The key there is to do a double layer of cheese to hold all your fixins together.
Don’t let the long ingredient list fool you, this really is easy to make. Most of the ingredients are duplicates! I have you seasoning the meat in a quick marinade, as well as seasoning the veggies with some fajita flavorings. The list may seem long, but it’s really not bad at all.
