Give your supper a little spice with this easy recipe for nacho cheeseburgers. Juicy burgers and melty cheese with a little zing!
As I mentioned in my last post, the Southern husband and I are back from a fabulous vacation in sunny Mexico, where we had a TERRIBLE TIME.
Don’t we look miserable?
I am reminiscing about all the boat drinks…
…all the glorious sunsets…
…and dreaming of all the delectable, just the right amount of spicy lunches and suppers we had (we went with my little brother and his lovely wife, and they were fabulous at helping me figure out how to navigate towards the right amount of spicy, as I am a spice chicken).
Which leads me to this recipe for nacho cheeseburgers, which swaps out the usual American cheese for a melty Velveeta sauce that is jazzed up with a little chili powder and some salsa.
And for me, the beauty part is that you control the amount of sauce by the type of salsa you have. If you are a chicken when it comes to spices (raises hand) you can use mild salsa.
If you are my mom or my sister, you use the hottest salsa you can find. You be you!
Here’s how you make nacho cheeseburgers!
Grab yourself some ground beef, season it up with salt and pepper, and form it into loose piles. I use my tried and true method of cooking diner style burgers for this recipe, so they have lots of nooks and crannies to hold the cheese sauce.
Place the piles on a buttered griddle or skillet and let them cook for 2 minutes without moving them. Flip carefully and cook for one minute more, and then let them rest while you make the sauce.
Give your supper a little spice with this easy recipe for nacho cheeseburgers. Juicy burgers and melty cheese with a little zing! Put some cubed Velveeta (yes, you MUST use Velveeta for this) and microwave it until it is melted. Stir in some chili powder and salsa.
Now pop the burgers on a hamburger roll and dollop on a generous amount of that cheesy zippy sauce, and you are ready to dig in!
And as soon as I can button my jeans again, this is going right to the top of my menu list. Until then, you can find me eating carrot sticks and dreaming of that glorious sunset up there. Happy sigh…Print
