Serving Size

4 to 8


  • 2 lbs. of teXga Farms 80/20 Ground Beef
  • 2 cups of French’s Fried Onions
  • 1 jar of chunky salsa
  • 1.5 cups of sharp cheddar cheese
  • Salt, Pepper and Granulated Garlic to taste before forming patties


When you start with our premium ground beef blend, all you really need is some salt, pepper, and granulated garlic for a fantastic burger. Every now and then, though, we like to mix it up and do something a little over the top. My mom came across a variation of this recipe when I was in elementary school and it became a staple in our house growing up. The combination of the moistness from the chunky salsa and cheese paired with the crunch and texture of the fried onions was always a hit. We made these again at my parent’s house this past weekend for Father’s Day and wanted to share it with y’all.

Happy Grilling!

Step 1
Combine the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and make sure you incorporate and distribute the fried onions evenly. These onions serve two purposes: 1) they are a great binder, holding the burgers together, and 2) they also add a great texture with a little crunch when eating your burgers.
Step 2
Now form your patties into approximately 1/4 lb. patties and place back in the refrigerator for a minimum of an hour. This allows the burger to firm back up in the fridge before going on the grill. Please don’t skip this step, as you may end up with the patties breaking apart on the grill which would be a travesty!
