For the Elote topping

  • 3 Cups fresh corn kernels (from about 4 ears of corn)
  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • kosher salt to taste
  • ½ Cup mayonnaise
  • 1 4 Ounce can green chiles
  • 3 Tablespoons cotija cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ¼ Teaspoon ancho chile powder
  • 2 Green onions green parts only, thinly sliced

For the Burgers

  • 4 Original BUBBA Burgers frozen
  • 4 Burger buns
  • 8 Slices Brick, Chihuahua, or Monterey Jack cheese
  • Avocado (optional)

  • Make the elote topping. Heat the avocado oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add the corn, season with salt, and cook until softened and well charred; about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the corn to a large mixing bowl and add the mayo, green chiles, cheese, lime juice, green onions and chili powder. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking.
  • Add the BUBBA burgers to the same cast iron pan and season with coarse salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes on the first side or until juices start to form on the patties. Flip the burgers and top with two slices of cheese each, cook for an additional 5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160F.
  • Place the burgers on the buns and pile on the elote topping.
  • Serve immediately. Enjoy!
