What do you call a cheese that isn't yours?? NACHO CHEESE!!! Baaahahahahaah....ok now that we got that out of the way.
Every now and then I have one of those culinary moments where I make something that just absolutely blows my mind. Not trying to sound cocky...more like just having a good day. This burger definitely created one of those moments, dare I say the best burger I have ever made?
I was going over my twitter feed one night when I saw Bobby Flay tweet about a nacho burger he was featuring at Bobby's Burger Palace and I thought that it sounded delicious. So, I figured I would just make my own Bobby Flay inspired Nacho Burger. I also remembered seeing somebody at some point (I know real specific) puree bacon and then add it into the burger patties. Figured since I had some left over bacon, I would kill two birds with one stone and incorporate it into the Nacho Burger. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be using this technique when making burgers for now on, the bacon just added sooo much flavor to the final product.
So why not give this burger a try, maybe make it for a few friends...maybe sit around and TACO 'bout it.....
PS I figured I would break up each component of the burger into individual recipes, just to make it a little easier. It may look like a lot, but each recipe is very simple. Also worth noting, the cheese sauce can be used for a variety of things (Nachos, cheese fries, etc) as well as the Salsa.
