Queso Smothered Burgers

Yum

Let's great right to this week's Burger Quest installment.
A burger SMOTHERED in Queso!
Now that's what I am talking about!


This summer, the weekend has been all about burgers!  In order to keep up with the quest, one must be taste testing various burger options 'cuz it's all about the research!  So, why should queso be reserved for chips only?  It shouldn't!  Let's smother a burger in it!
An easy to make home-made queso can be be in a snap while your burgers are out on the grill.


Ingredients to make slider size Queso Smothered Burgers:
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
salt and pepper to taste
1 8 ounce block of white cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 tsp each of salt, fresh ground pepper, chili powder and cumin
1/4 cup chopped red pepper
slices of red pepper and banana pepper
pretzel slider buns
Directions:
Get your grill going.  Shape ground beef into patties the size of your pretzel slider buns.  Season with salt and pepper. 
Grill over medium high heat until cooked to desired doneness.  While the burgers are grilling, in a saucepan, place shredded white cheddar cheese and heavy cream.  Stir over medium heat until melted.  Add all the seasonings and chopped red pepper.  Place cooked burger on the bun and smother in Queso sauce.  Top with additional red pepper and banana pepper slices.


Smothering a burger in cheese is heavenly!  The cumin gives the Queso that smoky flavor.  I think this burger needs a fork!  YUM!
