This was a pretty awesome burger! Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate...we've been getting crazy amounts of rain lately - but we weren't about to let that stop us from having a burger this weekend.

This will cure your burger fix for sure! (:

How to Make Big Tex Burger

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large bowl, mix all ingredients for your patties. Don't overwork the meat- just make sure spices are all evenly distributed.
  • 2Separate into patties and set aside while you get your grill ready.
  • 3Place bacon sprinkled with brown sugar, in 350 degree oven until done about 10 - 15 minutes. Watch carefully so your bacon doesn't burn.
  • 4In a small bowl combine peppers and onions. Drizzle with oil and then sprinkle with fajita seasoning. Set aside.
  • 5Combine all ingredients for mayo in another small bowl. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to build your burger.
  • 6In a medium skillet cook peppers and onion until done about 10 minutes. Keep warm on stove top.
  • 7Place burgers and jalapenos on the grill. Cook until done about 5 minutes on each side. Turn peppers as needed until softened and cooked through.
  • 8Bring burgers and peppers in. Place pepper jack cheese on burger and allow them to rest while making your guac.
  • 9Combine ingredients for guac in another small bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until you build your burger.
  • 10Take the buns and place them buttered side down on the grill to toast them slightly.
  • 11Spread mayo equally over buns.
  • 12Top bottom bun with lettuce, patty, bacon, peppers and onions, guac, then sliced fire roasted peppers. Top with top bun and enjoy!
