  • 3 pounds ground lamb
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt and same amount of coarse black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cumin

Filling: (optional)

  • 4 jalapeno’s thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese packed

Toppings and Sides:

  • Classic Mexican guacamole
  • Restaurant style Mexican Salsa
  • Sliced jalapeños
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Onion Rings
  • Tomato Slices
  • Crushed Chips (your choice)
  • Burger buns (your choice)
  • French Fries
  • Apple Kale Pomegranate Slaw (substitute Peach for the apples)


  1. Season the lamb with all the spice and gently mix it to incorporate all the flavors without overworking the meat.
  2. Divide the lamb into 8 large patties—the size is your choice, I made large patties about 3 inch diameter and 1 inch thickness, and set the patties on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Take one patty at a time and make a small dent in the centre and widen it so it can take the stuffing. Place about 4 slices of jalapeños and 2 tablespoons of cheddar cheese into each patty (more or less to your taste) and gently seal the patty back to its’ original shape.
  4. Preheat your BBQ to medium high and place the burgers on the grill. Grill for 6-8 minutes and then flip to the burger. Cover the grill and let the burger continue to cook for another 8 mins (depending not he size of your patties). Keep the grill covered until your lamb burgers are ready.
  5. Assemble the lamb burger: on the bottom burger bun, spread a teaspoon of guacamole, top with salsa, jalapenos, onions, tomatoes, the lamb burger, cheddar cheese, more salsa, guacamole, crushed chips and the top burger bun.
  6. Serve right away with a side of slaw, french fries, extra guacamole, salsa and chips! Enjoy :)
