Method
1
 Place the mince, shallot, cumin seeds and a shake of Tabasco in a bowl, and mix well together. Divide the mixture into quarters and shape into 1cm thick patties. Chill until ready to cook.

2 To make the salsa, stir together the tomatoes, chilli, red onion, coriander, olive oil, lime juice and a good shake of Tabasco.

3 Cook the burgers on a barbecue or in a griddle pan for 5 minutes on each side until thoroughly cooked through with no pink meat.

4 Meanwhile, toast the buns. Place a burger on the base of each bun and lay a slice of cheese on each. Spoon over the salsa, pop the lids on top and serve with extra salsa on the side.
 
Cook’s tip
A dollop of soured cream on top would add a cooling, creamy balance to the mild spice in the burgers.
