Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp Big Green Egg Ancho Chile & Coffee Seasoning
  • 1 can black beans, strained
  • 1 cup roasted corn kernels
  • 4 oz chipotles in adobo, diced
  • 1 package sangria tomatoes (mix of grape tomatoes)
  • 1 container queso
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • Large tortillas
  • Tostadas
  • Olive oil

Whole-y Guacamole Ingredients

  • 2 avocados
  • ¼ cup roasted corn kernels
  • Sangria tomatoes, diced
  • ½ of a small red onion, finely diced
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 lime

Whole-y Guacamole Instructions

Set the EGG up for direct cooking at 450°F/232°C with a Plancha Griddle, flat side up.

Reserve several tomatoes for the guacamole. Place the remaining tomatoes in a large bowl and toss with some olive oil, salt, and pepper, then roast them on the plancha just until they burst, about 5 minutes. Remove the tomatoes from the plancha and wipe the plancha with a paper towel. Chop the tomatoes into smaller pieces and return them to the bowl with the chuck, seasoning, corn, black beans and chipotles and mix until well combined. Form 4 8-oz patties or 8 4-oz patties. Grill the burgers on the plancha for 5-8 minutes per side (depending on what size patty you choose).

To make the guacamole, slice the avocado in half, remove the pit and dice the avocado into ¼ to ½ inch cubes. Fold together the remaining guacamole ingredients until evenly mixed. Cover tightly and refrigerate until used.

Add a dollop of the queso to the middle of a tortilla. Next, add a tostada, then a burger, followed by some guacamole and a second tostada. On top of the second tostada place cheddar cheese and fold the tortilla around it. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the griddle; add the burgers seam-side down and “fry” the tortilla shut (the cheese will melt and keep the seam sealed), about 1-2 minutes. Flip the burgers and cook another minute until the tortilla is golden brown.
