Bold seasonings – coriander, jalapeño and chilli powder – keep the flavour level of these deconstructed burgers high, while the classic taco accompaniments of lettuce, salsa, avocado and sour cream balance the heat and add freshness. Great for a Mexican themed barbecue.
Not all supermarkets sell burghul If yours doesn't, try your local health-food store. * For the best-quality mince, buy a good cut of meat, such as sirloin, and mince it yourself or ask the butcher to do it for you. * Look in the aisle that stocks Mexican foods for the pickled jalapeños. These are very fiery, so use your discretion when adding them to the burger mixture. * The recipe can be prepared in advance up to the end of step 2, then the patties kept in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. * Serve the patties with lightly grilled flour tortillas or pita breads.
