Superbowl Burgers!

So. The Superbowl is happening. To be honest, I didn't even know it was this weekend until like Thursday. I certainly don't know who's playing. All that aside, this burger has some great stuff, and if we're all being honest, I'm pretty sure food is the best part of a Superbowl party. So make these.

What's that in there? Thanks for asking. It's southwest flavored butter. Where did this idea come from? Well.....I've been watching a lot of Diners Drive-Ins & Dives lately. It's always on while I'm making dinner. Turns out there's a restaurant somewhere out there that makes burgers stuffed with butter. I thought this seemed cool, and decided to give it a southwest twist. So I flavored the butter and topped them with queso, crushed tortilla chips, and guacamole. What could be wrong with that?

I highly recommend these for game day. Or any other day, to be honest.

Southwest Butter Burgers
hamburger buns
1 lb ground beef
tortilla chips, crushed
I used How Sweet's recipe, which is here
use my recipe, and add about 1/2 cup black beans (canned)
southwest butter
1 stick salted butter, softened
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
juice of 1/2 a lime

  1. Using a fork, mash the other ingredients into the butter. Remove about 3/4 from the bowl, place onto plastic wrap. Gently roll into a log shape, then put into fridge. The rest can remain in the bowl at room temperature.
  2. Make the queso and guac.
  3. Shape the patties. Form a well in the center of each. Slice a medallion from the chilled butter log, and place in the well, like in the picture above. Reform the patty around the butter.
  4. Heat a pan over medium heat. Spread southwest butter on either half of a bun. Toast butter side down for about a minute or two, until the bun is toasted to your liking, then remove.
  5. Add the patties to the pan, cook about 5 minutes on the first side, flip, then 3 minutes on the second. Place on the bun.
  6. Top with queso, then guacamole. Crush some tortilla chips, then add to the top of the burger. Close the bun and enjoy.
