  • 1 LB Ground Beef
  • 2 Tbsp Carne Asada Dry Rub (See Description for the Link)
  • Pickled Jalapenos
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Jar White Nacho Cheese or Regular Nacho Cheese
  • 1 Tomato
  • 4 Leafs Romaine Lettuce
  • 4 Hamburger Buns


  • Preheat your grill for high heat, or direct heat grilling. I like a good crust on these
  • Form the ground beef into 3 to 4 patties depending on how thick you like them. Season each patty with the carne asada dry rub.
  • Let the rub soak into the patties for a couple of minutes.
  • Grill the burgers on direct heat until they reach your desired doneness. I like my burgers fully cooked, so I usually go to somewhere around 160 degrees F.
  • Let the burger rest under a tent of foil for a couple of minutes.
  • Toast the buns. To assemble the burgers, place lettuce on the bottom bun, followed by a slice of tomato.
  • Place a burger patty on top of the tomato. Place thin slices of avocado on top of the patty. Using a spoon, put a generous portion of nacho cheese sauce on top of the avocado slices. I like to heat mine up in the microwave for a bit so it's hot.
  • Finish topping the burger with a few rings of pickled jalapenos. Feel free to skip this if you don't like a bit of spice. Top the burger with the top bun, and enjoy!

Have you ever had one of those days where you just need to eat that messy, delicious, juicy burger? In the mood for a touch of spice? Looking for a new way to enjoy nacho flavors? This is the recipe for you! Sometimes I’m just in the mood for one of those amazing burgers where you just can’t keep your hands clean. It’s good stuff!

Sure, you could throw some nacho cheese sauce on a burger and call it a nacho burger, but the seasoning is what takes this one to the next level. Every good plate of nachos has some kind of meat or bean mixture with great taco seasoning. My Carne Asada Dry Rub is the perfect recipe to drive those flavors home.

So, what else can you do to make this burger even more nacho? More nacho toppings! I like topping my nachos with tomatoes, avocado, and pickled jalapenos. This burger drives all of those points home. To finish things off, make sure and flood this guy with a warm fountain of beautiful nacho cheese. We like the white queso at our house, but normal nacho cheese will work just fine too.

This is a burger that might just become the ultimate comfort food in your life. With all these flavors, you’ll be sure to have a great dinner! Enjoy!
