Fajita Burgers

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 4 burger patties (approximately 1/3 pound each)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 red bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 4 burger buns
  • 4 slices PepperJack Cheese
  • 4 pieces of lettuce
  • Guacamole
  • Pico de Gallo


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high and side burner* to medium heat.
  2. Mix together spices (chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano) in a small bowl. Coat burger patties in spice blend.
  3. Grill burgers to desired doneness. One minute before they are done, top each burger with a slice of cheese and allow to melt.
  4. Meanwhile, drizzle sliced peppers and onions with oil and season generously with Kosher salt. Cook, stirring occasionally to avoid burning, until peppers and onions are softened and charred in spots.
  5. Place cheeseburgers on buns and top with lettuce, grilled peppers and onions, guacamole, and pico de gallo. Devour immediately.


*if you don’t have a griddle side burner, feel free to grill peppers and onions in a cast-iron skillet on the grill or just cook in a skillet inside on the stove.
