Tortas Hamburguesas

This was a burger that became a patty melt that is amazing no matter what roll you put it on. Between the bacon loaded patty and the sauce, this may be heaven.


  • 4 slices bacon cut into 1/4" pieces
  • 1/4 onion minced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 1/4 lbs ground beef
  • handful snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 teas salt
  • 1/2 teas black pepper
  • Monterey Jack cheese with pepper sliced
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbs smoked paprika
  • bread or rolls split and toasted
  • avocados sliced
  • tomatoes sliced
  • shredded lettuce
  • cilantro pickled jalapeno, hot sauce as toppings


  • In a small bowl, combine the mayo, ketchup, and paprika. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  • Cook the bacon, onion, and garlic in a skillet over medium heat. Set aside to cool (reserve the bacon fat). When cooled, combine ground beef, bacon, drippings, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper. Form into 1/4" thick patties, cover, and place in fridge for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Preheat a skillet or griddle to medium-high heat. Cook patties 5 to 7 minutes, flipping once. Lay sliced cheese over patty when almost done and cover to steam and melt.
  • Serve on toasted bread with mayo-ketchup sauce, avocado, lettuce, tomato and other desired toppings.
