Fiesta Burger

I am really excited to share this delicious burger recipe featuring VG Meats ground beef! I was lucky enough to be part of VG Meats #50BurgerDays and in round one my Fiesta Burger was the winner and will be off to the semifinals! So to celebrate I wanted to share this great burger recipe with you. Packed with your favourite “taco” flavours and seasonings this burger is a fiesta in your mouth! It is perfect for your summer bbq’s, including upcoming Canada Day celebrations.
  • 400g VG Meats Ground Beef (Lean or Extra Lean – whichever is your preference)
  • 1/4 cup finely diced yellow pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely diced orange pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • For the Fiesta Burger spice blend: 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt, 1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp ground cumin, 1/8 tsp paprika, and a pinch of ground cayenne
  • 1 tsp Tabasco Sauce


  1. Saute peppers and onions in a small saute pan on medium heat in 1 tsp oil for 5 minutes, until softened. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  2. Place ground beef in a large bowl.
  3. Stir Fiesta spice blend together, and pour over beef.
  4. Add cooled cooked peppers and onions and Tabasco to beef mixture.
  5. Combine ingredients with your hands until everything is incorporated.
  6. Form into 4 equal patties (100g-120g each) and chill until ready to cook . . . (You can freeze them also at this point!).
  7. Grill burgers on bbq or stovetop to desired doneness.
  8. Serve on your favourite bun, topped with spicy cheese, salsa, tomato, lettuce and guacamole.
Suggested Toppings/Sauces:
  • Some great Canadian or local cheese with a kick! I found Bothwell Red Hot Chili Pepper Jack at my local Longo’s which also stocks VG Meats
  • Neal Brothers Salsa (also found at VG Meats and Longo’s)
  • Fresh Tomato and Lettuce
  • Homemade or store bought guacamole
