My fiancé is a huge meat eater and loves a burger every now and then. Recently we decided to try Smashburger's because I saw that they had a black bean burger I could eat. I
After assembling my ingredients I got to work prepping everything. I used my Food Network Chopper to crush the blue corn chips and dice the onion. It seems like with my contacts in I have even more issues with dicing onions than I do with my glasses on. Therefore, to make it easy on myself I'll use the chopper.
After mixing everything up and getting my hands really dirty I then formed the mix into 12 small patties. I made my patties pretty thin so that is why I ended up with so many. If you like your patties thicker you'll probably get about 8 out of this recipe.
I normally like my burgers best on the grill, but I decided to try it on my frying pan. My husband just got a new grill and he doesn't have anything I can use to cook my burgers on it without pieces falling through the slots. I was happily not disappointed. You want to cook them about 3-5 minutes per side on medium heat. I wanted to make them like the ones you get at Smashburgers so I "smashed" mine while they were cooking.
The smell was divine as they were cooking. My stomach kept growling so I was sneaking bites off my cooked patties as I cooked the rest. It was so good!
Now you can try them!
Enjoy! They are a great alternative for non-meat eaters or even for meat eaters. My fiancé loved them. I had to slow him down or he would've eaten 4 whole burgers in one sitting. I think the secret to these delicious patties is the blue corn tortilla chips and the chipotle mayo. If you make these you have got to buy Kraft Chipotle Mayo. I love love love this stuff!
