Queso Blanco Cinco De Mayo Burger // What better way to celebrate National Hamburger Month AND Cinco De Mayo than with this Queso Blanco Burger? It's everything you want in a Mexican style burger. You won't be disappointed! | Tried and TastyDid you know that May is National Hamburger Month? I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Cinco De Mayo than with this fantastic Queso Blanco Burger! I’ve teamed up with my sweet friend Jesseca from One Sweet Appetite to bring you delicious burgers all week long. Over the last four days I’ve brought you the buns, now it’s time to bring you the burgers! So back to this amazing burger. What is Cinco De Mayo anyway? “Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, [note 1] where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).”

The more common party foods are things like Seven Layer Dip  (I also really LOVE my Taco Dip!), guacamole, Homemade Salsa, stuffed peppers (like my Poblanos Stuffed with Cheddar & Chicken!) or Quick & Easy Chicken Tostadas… to name a few. Basically, pick any of your favorite Mexican foods for a delicious celebration. I wanted to somehow incorporate Cinco De Mayo with my burger. After some thought, the Queso Blanco burger was born. It’s the best of both worlds. A creamy cheesy delicious dip spooned over a well-seasoned juicy hamburger. How can you go wrong?

You won't be disappointed! | Tried and TastyI’ve been showing you a handful of different options for hamburger buns made-at-home. For these I decided to use my Homemade Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns. They were FANTASTIC! Of course, if you don’t have all the time in the world (not that I do), store bought buns work just fine as well.

For the Burgers
  1. 1 lb. ground hamburger
  2. Garlic salt, to taste
  3. Onion powder, to taste
  4. Seasoned salt, to taste
For the Queso Dip
  1. 1 tbsp. olive oil
  2. 1/2 c. diced white onion
  3. 1 medium jalapeño, deseeded & diced
  4. 2 medium poblano pepper, roasted and diced
  5. 10 oz. white American cheese, shredded (find this cheese at the deli counter)
  6. 6 oz. Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
  7. 1/2 c. milk
  8. 1/2 c. freshly chopped cilantro
  9. 2 roma tomatoes, seeds removed and diced
Optional Toppings
  1. Lettuce
  2. Chopped tomatoes
  3. Chopped Onion
For the burgers
  1. Heat grill to medium-high. Divide hamburger in to eight equal balls. Flatten and season both sides. Grill to desired doneness. Remove from heat. Top with lettuce, tomato, onion & Queso Blanco dip.
For the Queso Blanco dip
  1. Heat oil in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion and jalapeño pepper until softened, about 3-5 minutes; reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in the roasted poblano pepper. Add the shredded cheese and milk. Stir until mostly melted. Stir in the tomatoes and chopped cilantro. Serve with chips immediately or transfer to a crockpot to keep warm.
Notes
  1. You'll find your white American cheese at the deli counter. I bought both the white American and the pepperjack at the counter in chunks (instead of slices). Then, when I got home I just ran the chunks through my food processor and quickly shredded it.

  1. Amber @ Dessert Now, Dinner Later!

    I’m ready to dig in right now! Can I have one for breakfast?!

  2. Laurie

    Mmm, looks like burgers will be on the menu for this weekend. Do you think queso fresco would work in place of the white American or is it the wrong texture?. Melting it so it will probably work.

    1. Yvonne

      You know, I’ve only used queso fresco once before and I didn’t melt it down. As long as you still get a smooth velvety consistency after it is melted I don’t see why it wouldn’t work!

  3. Jesseca Hallows

    Seriously. This looks so good. I’m excited for our burger series and can’t wait to try out this recipe. Anything smothered in queso has to be delicious!

  4. thepinningmama

    Oh yum! That is the way to make a burger! Visiting from One Sweet Appetite!

    1. Yvonne

      I wish I could make you one…or better yet, you could make it and I could snuggle that adorable little baby you’ve got!! Ha!

  5. Leah

    My family will love these! We have hamburgers on the menu later this week so I will definitely be surprising everyone with this new recipe. Thanks!

    1. Yvonne

      Awesome! That will be a fun surprise and DELICIOUS at that – hope they fall in love with them. Buy chips too for the leftover queso, then you’ll have a side dish or appetizer too!

  6. Kristy

    YUM!! I don’t know if my personal trainer would want me to eat this but I’m making this for my cheat day this week!! I showed Mike and he said we have to make these! Thanks for all your delicious recipes. 🙂

    1. Yvonne

      This is definitely cheat day worthy! For sure!! You’re welcome friend – thanks for being such an awesome supporter!

    1. Yvonne

      Doesn’t it though?!? Yay! I’m glad you love it – I love it too! I’d say it’s time to get the grill goin!
