Chili's Nacho Burger

Chili's Nacho Burger


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 4 large sesame seed buns
  • 2 cups iceberg lettuce, shredded or chopped thin
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 16-20 tortilla chips
  • 2-3 fresh jalapenos, sliced

Pico de Gallo:

  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced 1/2 cup diced Spanish onion
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and de-ribbed
  • 2 teaspoons finely minced fresh cilantro
  • Pinch of salt


  • 2 small or 1 large Haas avocado
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/4 cup diced tomato
  • 1/2 teaspoon diced jalapeno
  • 1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Chili Queso:

  • 3 ounces ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of ground black pepper
  • 16-ounce bottle Cheez Whiz
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika


  1. First make the Pico de Gallo. Just combine all of the ingredients for the Pico in a small bowl and mix well. Cover bowl and chill in the refrigerator.
  2. Now make the guacamole: In a small bowl, smash up most of the avocado, but be sure to leave several un-smashed chunks. Add the remaining ingredients for the guacamole to the avocado and mix well. Cover bowl and chill in the refrigerator, next to the pico.
  3. Next make the chili queso: In yet another small bowl, mix together ground beef, flour, a pinch of salt, a pinch of black pepper, and a pinch of chili powder. Use your hands to work the dry ingredients into the ground beef.
  4. Brown the beef in a small skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Use a spoon or spatula to crumble the beef as it cooks. Cook until it's brown, then set aside.
  5. Melt the Cheez Whiz with 2 tablespoons of milk over low heat. When milk and cheese has been combined, add the remaining queso ingredients. Heat while stirring often until cheese is smooth and creamy, then cover saucepan and remove it from the heat.
  6. Pre-heat a griddle or large frying pan over medium heat. Lightly butter the face of each bun and brown the buns face-down on the heat.
  7. Separate the ground beef into four 1/2-pound portions. Roll each portion of meat into a ball and then pat the meat down into a circular patty slightly larger in diameter than the hamburger buns. Cook the hamburger patties for 5-10 minutes per side, until done. Lightly salt and pepper each burger patty.
  8. Build the burger open-faced in the following order starting with the bottom bun:
  9. On Bottom Bun: 1/2 cup shredded lettuce hamburger patty 2 tablespoons chili queso 4 or 5 crumbled tortilla chips 2 teaspoons green onion
  10. On Top Bun: 1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise 2 tablespoons Pico de Gallo 2 tablespoons guacamole 4 jalapeno slices
  11. Serve burger with extra queso and guacamole. May also serve french fries on the side and use the chili queso for dipping.
