FOR THE FAJITA SEASONING

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

FOR THE BURGERS

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • < salt & pepper
  • 1 onion, sliced into ¼” slices
  • 1 green pepper, stemmed, seeded and sliced

  • 1/4 cup homemade guacamole
  • < lettuce and tomato

Directions

Step 1 Of 8
1
Preheat one side of your grill to 400°F, leaving the other side off for indirect grilling.
2
Combine chili powder, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and garlic powder in a small bowl. Set aside.
3
Meanwhile, mix 2 tablespoons of fajita seasoning into the ground beef. Form the ground beef into 6 patties. Make a dimple in the center of each with your thumb and season with salt and pepper.
4
Toss the onion slices and peppers in olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Arrange the veggies in a grill basket and place on the cooler side of the grill over indirect heat, tossing occasionally until veggies are charred and softened, 7-10 minutes.
5
Arrange the patties on the hot side of the grill and close the lid. Grill 4-5 minutes per side until internal temperature reaches 160°F, flipping once halfway through for even cooking.
6
Place the buns on the cool side of the grill to toast.
7
When the burgers are almost done, place a slice of Manchego cheese on each burger. Close the lid to allow the cheese to melt. Remove from grill and rest the burgers.
8
Arrange the buns with lettuce and tomato on the bottom bun. Top with a burger, a dollop of guacamole and a healthy pile of fresh grilled onions and peppers.
