Chili Con Carne Burger

Posted on 18 Apr 2013

In being experimental with flavours in the kitchen –usually to good result– I devised this chili con carne burger recipe. Which is simply an adaptation of my chili recipe to burger form.


Amount Ingredient
500 g (1 lb) ground beef
250 g (½ lb) ground pork
1 onion, grated
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 jalapeño peppers, finely chopped
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon ancho chili powder (optional)
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1 egg


My preferred to cook burgers (if it’s not outdoor-grill-season) is to use a heavy cast-iron skillet (preheating over medium-high heat, prior to adding butter (yes) and the patties) then searing/browning the patties for about 4-5 minutes a side.
