Big juicy burgers filled with chilies, cheese and mushrooms, then grilled and basted with steak sauce. Use any type of cheese you like. When I have a cook out, and I'm making burgers, this is what my wife asks for all the time!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, 1/4 cup of the steak sauce, fajita seasoning, and dried onion until well blended. Form the mixture into 8 patties. Set aside 4 of the patties. On the other 4 patties, place one slice of cheese, some of the green chilies, and some mushrooms. Place the other 4 patties over the top, press down, and seal the edges so the goodies do not escape.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for low heat. Lightly oil grate.

  • Place patties on the grill, and let them brown on both sides. Once they begin to brown, brush the tops with remaining steak sauce. Continue to grill for about 30 minutes, basting frequently with steak sauce, until meat is no longer pink, and the juices run clear. When the meat is ready to come off the grill, place the remaining 4 slices of cheese over the tops of the patties. Serve on buns, or just by themselves.

Wow. Wow wow wow. My husband and I actually just finished these and he told me he just ate the best burger he's ever had and he's had a lot of burgers! I'm so proud. I halved the recipe and the burgers were enormous. I didn't have fajita seasoning so I used some Mexican chili powder garlic powder and season salt. I also used fresh minced white onion instead of dry. I didn't measure the spices but I was careful not to over season. Since I halved it I used 1/8 cup A1 in the beef and then just a little more for basting at the end. I didn't have canned mushroom so I sauteed some fresh ones with garlic butter and onion. I did use the green chiles and they were fantastic. They were canned serranos and I seeded them first because they were a bit too hot. I also used a bit of lightly beaten egg to help bind the meat but still it was difficult getting the patties to stay together. I grilled them on higher heat to sort of give them some char and then I switched to a lower heat to ensure they were cooked through. Enjoy these are great! Thanks to the poster! Read More

These were very good...and a buper hearty burger. I made a half recipe but I'm not sure about the fajita seasoning. I think next time I may skip it all together. I found that and the steak sauce to be a little much. The chiles and mushrooms were exceptional. Read More

Excellent. I didn't have any cheese but blue cheese on hand and didn't want to go to the store it was great. The blue cheese just gave it more zing. I have also done just as directions said and the whole family loves it... Read More
