Mexican Chilli Beef Burger

cook 30 mins
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 40 g (1 1/2 oz) Mexican spice mix (such as fajita seasoning)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 400 g (13 oz) minced beef
  • soft tortilla wraps or toasted burger buns
  • grated Cheddar cheese (optional)
  • spicy salsa (optional)
  • Iceberg lettuce (optional)
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a frying pan and cook the onion and red pepper over a medium heat for 10 minutes until really soft and golden. Scrape into a large bowl and set aside to cool for 2–3 minutes before adding the remaining ingredients. Mix really well with your hands, then shape into 4 patties.
  • Return the pan to the heat with the remaining oil and cook the burgers over a medium heat for 4–5 minutes on each side until cooked but still juicy.
  • Serve the chilli beef burgers in folded tortillas or toasted burger buns with fillings such as grated Cheddar cheese, salsa and shredded Iceberg lettuce, if desired.
