Thanks to the Hard Rock Cafe for today’s recipe!  It’s that time of year again and this is a fun way to spice things up.  Be Creative!

o   8 oz.                 Beef Burger

o   1 tsp                 Seasoning Salt

o   2 Tbsp.            Jalapeno Salsa

o   2 slices            Monterey Jack Cheese

o   1                        Hamburger Bun

o   1 Tbsp.            Fresh Guacamole

o   1 Tbsp.            Pico de Gallo

o   2 leaves          Iceberg Lettuce

o   1 slice              Tomato


Shake half of seasoning on burger and place season side down on broiler, shake remaining seasoning over burger. Cook to desired temperature. After cooking, spread jalapeno salsa over the patty and place cheese slices. Top with iceberg lettuce, tomato, guacamole and pico de gallo.

  • The grill should be in the 550 degree range to sear meat well – the time it takes to cook will depend on the temperature of the grill and thickness of the burger
  • You can flip the burger a few times, but no more than three. Don’t press the burger to make it cook faster because you want the juices to seal in
