What do you do when you’re craving a burrito and a cheeseburger? You have both of course. You take a nice, juicy cheeseburger and wrap it up in a soft burrito, then place more cheese on top. You know that one friend that eats everything with a knife and fork? Well for this burger you get to be that friend. This is very fork worthy trust me. I am thinking that next time I make this I might add some guacamole on top. I might even shake things up a bit and bring it more to the burger level and add ketchup, mustard and maybe even a pickle or two inside the burrito. I mean with this burrito burger, you can let your imagination go and who knows what you might come up with.
Here’s what you need to get started:
*soft style burrito tortillas
*1 LB or more ground beef, preferable an 80% to 20% fat ratio.
*1 tsp. garlic powder
*1tsp. onion powder
*1/2 tsp. salt
*cracked pepper to taste
*1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
*sliced cheese; I used cheddar and Colby Jack
Preheat oven to 400°
Place ground beef in a large bowl and add all of the ingredients except for the tortillas and sliced cheeses.
Mix until well blended.
Form into 4 equal patties.
Heat a cast iron pan to medium high heat. When the pan is very hot, add the patties.
Cook for about 5 minutes, then flip them over.
Cook for another 3 minutes for medium rare burgers or for 5 minutes for medium burgers.
Place patties on a plate lined with a paper towel.
This drains some of the grease off of the burgers. If the burgers are too juicy, the bottom of the tortilla will become soggy….and no one likes a soggy bottom. I’m just sayin.
Lay a tortilla on a baking sheet, then one slice of cheese in the center of the tortilla.
I used cheddar for this.
Place a patty on top of the cheese.
Fold in the two sides of the tortilla.
I could never be a hand model.
Next, fold the top and the bottom of the tortilla over the sides.
Then flip it over.
Place a slice of cheese on top of the burrito. I used the Colby Jack for this.
Repeat with remaining tortillas. Place in the oven and cook for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve on plates and add any topping you might like.
