What better way to start off UTC football and tailgate season for Moc's football than with a recipe for a MASSIVE tailgate burgerl. I'm kicking things off with a Seasoned Corn Tortilla Burger topped with Corn Salsa and a spicy mayo! So here we go, get ready for some football and enjoy this kickoff tailgate recipe. Go Mocs!

Scrappy's Corn Salsa Burgers

First - make a bunch of hamburgers from ground beef, salt, and pepper. Grill them up and top them with the following.

For the Salsa

  • 1 can whole corn drained
  • 1 can black beans drained, rinsed
  • 1/3 cup chopped purple onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon cilantro
  • Cilantro to taste
  • Chili powder to taste
  • Parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoons fine chopped jalapeno
  • Dash of salt & pepper
  • Tablespoon of ketchup
  • Dash of hot sauce

Combine all of the ingredients, cover and chill before using.

For the Mayo

  • Mayo with a dash, or twelve, of hot sauce
  • Black pepper
  • Dash of chili powder
  • Dash of minced garlic

Combine, cover and chill.

Directions For Burger Topping: Make your burgers as you normally do but toss in some fine ground corn tortilla chips, about two handfuls to four to six burgers. Season as you normally would. Grill up the burgers; serve on a nice bun with the spicy mayo and corn salsa. Add more of your favorite toppings as desired. The salsa also works great as a topping for brawts, sausages and dawgs.
