Touch-Down Beef Burger with Grilled Onion and Toasty BunThis burger says 'Olé' from the burger right through to the bun!
Barbecoa-style BurgersThis burger recipe was inspired by a team of Mexican chefs that were hosted at the Canadian Beef Centre of Excellence. We recommend using Medium Ground Beef for best flavour. If using Lean or Extra Lean, add in a tablespoon or so of butter, cream or minced bacon to enhance flavour. Sauté the onion and garlic to incorporate into the patty better than if added uncooked. If you can find Ancho Sauce in the grocery store, that can substitute for the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.
