Mexican Burgers Recipe--The Peaceful Mom


Mexican Burgers Recipe

We recently tired of our usual cheeseburgers and decided to try something a little different–Mexican Burgers. We made our burgers flavorful, but not too spicy, but of course you can adjust the recipe to suit your tastes!

Mexican Burgers Recipe

Yield: 8 burgers

A flavorful twist on burgers from The Peaceful Mom!


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 large red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons dried onions
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • Toppings: Cheddar or Monterrey Jack Cheese, red onion slices, salsa


  1. In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat for about 1 minute.
  2. Add diced red pepper to skillet and saute for two minutes until the pepper is just starting to soften.
  3. Add minced garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes more, stirring often so that the garlic does not burn.
  4. Allow pepper and garlic mixture to cool.
  5. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, egg, cooled pepper and garlic mixture, dried onions and spices.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Grill or broil burgers.
  8. Top with cheese, onion slice and salsa according to taste.


If you need to make these quickly, substitute 1 small can of green chilis and 1 teaspoon dried minced garlic for the sauteed pepper and garlic mixture. To make these gluten free, simply use a gluten free bun or serve burgers without a bun.

      That’s funny Willow, because I have never thought of making a Mexican-style meatloaf before. :) I’m glad you are enjoying the website. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
