Grilled Bourbon Bacon Burgers will be the star of your next outdoor summer barbecue party.
Jun 8, 2018


  • 1 lb (500 g) lean ground beef
  • 1 can (127 mL) Old El Paso™ Chopped Green Chilies
  • 2 tablespoon bacon bits
  • 4 teaspoon bourbon
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 4 thick slices aged white cheddar cheese (or more if you're cutting narrow slices)
  • 4 onion buns
  • 8 slices romaine lettuce, sliced into equal pieces for each burger
  • 1 pinch coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  • 1
    In a large bowl combine the beef, chilies, bourbon, bacon bits, a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix with your hands until well combined, then form four equal patties. You can either marinate these in the fridge for a few hours, or start grilling immediately.
  • 2
    Preheat the grill to a medium-high and grill burgers until cooked through, or your desired doneness. Once you flip the burgers, add the cheese so that it melts in the grilling process.
  • 3
    Grill the buns as well until you get good grill marks.
  • 4
    In the meantime, render your bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat until nice and crisp. Transfer to a plate and pat dry. Break in half so that you have a few pieces for each burger.
  • 5
    Serve burgers garnished with bacon and crisp romaine lettuce!
