Oklahoma Onion Burger Smoked Queso

Oklahoma Onion Burger Smoked Queso

The Oklahoma Onion Burger is a staple in Oklahoma. This recipe combines those classic flavors with a smoked queso, for a unique and delicious treat for your next party!

This is a guest recipe by Rick from Cocktails and Q. Make sure to show this recipe some love - we definitely loved it!

You Will Need

  • 1.5 lbs 80/20 ground beef
  • 1 block of Velveeta cheese
  • 2 whole White Onions (sliced thin)
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cans rotel, drained
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup of pickled jalapeños
  • Kosmo's Q Cow Cover Hot rub
  • Kosmo's Q The Best Garlic Jalapeño Rub

The Prep

First up, as with any recipe, you will want to get all the hard work out of the way. Slice your onions as thin as you can get them. Then sautee the sliced onions in a large , cast iron pan/skillet, until they are softened and slightly translucent.

Next up, add the ground beef to the same pan, and season liberally with both Cow Cover Hot and The Best Garlic Jalapeño rubs. Of course, this is what we use - feel free to use your favorite spice blend instead.

Cook the beef with the onions, breaking large chunks up and stirring to get all of it to a nice brown color.

The Cook

Time to move this party to the smoker!

Have your pit preheated to 300ºF (149ºC). Add the cream of mushroom and the drained rotel, as well as the cheese blend and pickled jalapeño to the pan. Then move it to the smoker over indirect heat.

Let everything cook for 45 minutes. Remove the skillet, stir everything together, then place it back on the heat. Cook for 15 more minutes, until everything melts together.

The Payoff

Once ready, remove from the heat again and garnish how you want! We used fresh sliced jalapeño, pickled hot peppers, Mexican crema, tomatoes and green onion.

Serve immediately with some tortilla chips or whatever you like delicious gooey cheese on!

Thank you once again Rick for this awesome recipe! We're looking forward to seeing photos of everyone who made this on their smoker, as well as feedback in the comments below.

Catch you on the next recipe!
