Queso-Dip Hamburger

Anna Monette Roberts, POPSUGAR Food


This recipe only makes one burger, but it can easily be re-created for a crowd. Plan on purchasing 1/2 pound of ground beef for each guest.

Queso Hamburger Recipe


  1. Burger
    1/2 pound ground beef
    Kosher salt
    Hamburger bun, insides buttered
  1. Garnishes:
    Queso dip [1]
    Jalapeño slices
    Shredded red cabbage, dressed with fresh lime juice and salt


  1. Preheat your grill, grill pan, or panini press. Take a look at your hamburger bun, and with the ground beef, form a hamburger patty that is slightly larger than the bun (the meat shrinks as it cooks). Liberally salt the patty.
  2. Once the grill is hot, grill the hamburger patty 4 minutes (for medium rare) and up to 5-6 minutes (medium well). Once the juices pool on the top of the patty, flip and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Meanwhile, toast the buttered buns facedown on the grill for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Place the bun open-faced on a plate. On the bottom half, spoon a few tablespoons of queso, followed by the burger, cabbage, and jalapeño slices.
