Macho Nacho Burger Recipe Brings the Caliente this Cinco de Mayo

29 Apr

Behold the Macho Nacho Burger in all its glory! Pic from Robin Selden of Marcia Selden Catering.

It’s pretty standard to throw in some loaded nachos, tacos, and margaritas when you celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but we’ve got another idea for you. Woooahhh, hold up: we’re not saying to stop serving those, we’re just saying think about adding this bad boy recipe too: Macho Nacho Burgers. It’s all the things that we love about Mexican food: chili and spices, jalapeno, cheese, and cilantro! Plus, it’s super easy to make.

Thanks again to Marcia Selden Catering for this great recipe. When you make these, shoot us an e-mail or tag us on Instagram. It’s always great to see!

  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh Cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 2 teaspoons seeded Jalapeño pepper, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ½ cup finely shredded Jack/Cheddar Cheese
  • ¼ cup mild Salsa (drain out excess liquid)
  • 4 thick slices Monterey Jack or Cheddar Cheese
  • ¼ cup Sour Cream
  • ¼ cup Guacamole
  • ¼ cup Mild Salsa
  • ½ cup pickled Jalapenos
  • 4 Hamburger Buns


Combine first 8 ingredients in a bowl; stir well to incorporate.

Divide into 4 equal sized burger patties.

Preheat grill. Place burgers on grill and cook approximately 5 minutes on each side. Place 1 cheese slice on top of each and grill an additional minute or until cheese melts.
