Cajun Cook Out Faves + Bayou Boogie

Here's a great burger recipe with a Caj-Mex twist that is perfect for your Memorial Day cookout or anytime you want a spicy, scrumptious burger. I had one at a recent family gathering and just had to make them. Out of this world, cher! I am also including a few links to other items that are on the menu. Bon appetit!

Spicy Caj-Mex Burgers

2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 tbs. Cajun seasoning
1 tbs. chili powder
2 tbs.'s Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs. chipotle sauce
1 (4 oz.) can green chilies
1 tbs. minced garlic
1 tbs. fresh cilantro, chopped
1 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
1 cup Doritos, crushed

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and shape into 6 patties. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Grill on medium hot grill for 10 to 12 minutes on each side for medium well.  Brush buns with butter and grill for 5 minutes on indirect heat before serving. Garnish with lettuce, tomato, onions, salsa, and sour cream! Sinfully good!

I've learned to open your blog after we've eaten or else I'd drool to death. Everything looks delicious, but it's the potato salad I want to dive into. Love that stuff!

I think I need doritos in my next burger. And chipotle AND green chilies? Well, be still my heart. There is so much good stuffed into one place.

Hope you are enjoying the summer so far (and really, who wouldn't with this burger?).
Thanks for linking!

I think that every single item looks good. Out of all of it, at this moment I want the potato salad. We have several PS recipes we love. We may try this one tomorrow. Thanks!
