Can you guess what my husband ate for Father’s Day? It just isn’t a day for a dad without a big piece of meat, so I lovingly obliged with this here Tex Mex Burger with Avocado Corn Relish.
If you live in South Texas, you’re probably used to the rain already. The seemingly never-ending deluge of storm after storm after storm after storm. In fact, some of the storms were strong enough to make Tropical Storm Bill seem like a toddler going down for a nap. But all that rain doesn’t stop us Texans from grilling what we want, when we want. Like my Blackened Pepper Cheeseburger, Spicy Guacamole Burger, and Ranch Stuffed Burger, this Tex Mex Burger with Avocado Corn Relish is exactly what my Texan ordered!
If you love flavor, and I mean love love flavor, then this Tex Mex Burger with Avocado Corn Relish is right up your alley. My secret ingredient (well, not so secret anymore, ha) is El Yucateco. It provides some amazing heat without being overwhelming, or sacrificing flavor, which is super important to me when it comes to cooking spicy. I like using El Yucateco Red Habañero Hot Sauce for this burger because it contains far less vinegar than other hot sauces so you get more of the true flavor of the peppers. I essentially marinated my burgers in the Red Sauce before grilling, to really sear in the flavor and the heat, producing a most deliciously appetizing burger.

- In a medium sized bowl, add the corn, tomato, red onion, avocado, and 1 Tbsp hot sauce. Mix gently, then set aside.
- Place the beef in a large bowl and add 2 Tbsp of the hot sauce then mix until fully incorporated. Separate the beef into 4 balls of equal size, then press down gently with your hand to flatten out the patties. Sprinkle each side with the salt and pepper, then use the back of a spoon to spread the remaining hot sauce onto the burger.
- Prepare a grill at high heat, brush the grate down with oil and grill each burger for 3 minutes on one side before flipping, then another 3 minutes for medium rare, and around 6-8 minutes for well done.
- Place each burger on a hot bun, then top with queso fresco, a heaping scoop of the avocado corn relish, and a couple slices of serrano pepper. Serve immediately.
