The Ingredients

What a super simple and cheap keto recipe to make. Perfect for all families or budget conscious keto lifetsyle followers.

  • Beef mince (ground beef) – Honestly I buy the cheapest variety with the most amount of fat.  If you have a mincer and can find cheaper beef go for. Also the recipe does work with any other ground meats.
  • Spices – I use the basics. Onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, ground cumin, and ground coriander. If you want to pimp your keto Mexican beef burgers then feel free to add things like fresh chilli, fresh coriander, Mexican oregano, annatto spice or more.
  • Chipotles in adobo – I love the smokiness it adds to a lot of my recipes. Found on most supermarket shelves in the Mexican Food section, it is for more flavour and smoke than heat.

Recipe FAQs

How long do they take to cook?

Depending on whether you like a burger rare to well done this will affect cooking times. I do 3 minutes each side over an open flame on the Kamado Joe. I set to steakhouse -searing temperature and cook lid down for the 3 minutes each side. Finally I do a final flip for 2 minutes to cook any proteins that have been released within the patty.

Can I use other meats?

Of course! I have used many different proteins for keto burger recipes. For vegetarians or vegans, minced mushrooms with black soy beans make a great burger or seitan or tofu for our soy and gluten crowd.

Are the Keto Mexican Beef Burgers spicy? Will my kids eat them?

Of course you would have a fairer idea of what the kids will eat than me. In saying that this recipe is far from spicy. Use cayenne with caution if you cannot handle the heat or just use a little sweet paprika for added spice, without the heat.
