Start by turning on your BBQ and pre-heating it to 500F. (As we have a small lightweight BBQ we just cranked the heat all the way and let it go as we continued on.) As the BBQ heats up, wash and dry the produce, then core and cut the bell pepper into small half-inch pieces. Cut the corn kernels off the raw cob if using fresh corn and set aside. Chop the cilantro, and thinly slice the green onion. Set all the prep aside in small bowls for easy use.
Mix the mayo and cilantro in a small bowl, season with salt and pepper and set aside. In a medium bowl mix together the corn kernels, diced bell pepper, half the Mexican seasoning and 1 tbsp of oil.
Cut out 2 pieces of aluminum foil roughly 18 x 12 inches in size. Spread the corn mixture on the foil, and fold up the edges of the foil making them meet in the center on top. Pinch the edges together to seal the pouch. Set aside.
Using the medium bowl you mixed the corn in, combine the ground beef and remaining Mexican seasoning. Season with some pepper, and mix well. Form the mixture into 4 evenly sized burger patties about the diameter of your buns. Set aside.
Once all the prep is done, turn the BBQ to medium-high heat, and place the veggie foil pouches on the grill. Cook until tender, about 12-14 minutes.
Halfway through cooking the corn pouches, add the burger patties to the grill. Grill the patties 3-4 minutes per side, flipping once. When the patties are almost done sprinkle them with cheese. If you have room in the grill or a second shelf, place the burger buns on the grill to gently warm and toast them as the burger patties finish cooking.
Once the patties are cooked and the cheese has melted, open the foil pouches and sprinkle with the sliced green onion. Spread the cilantro mayo on the toasted buns, top the bottom with the mixed greens and then the patties. Divide the burgers and grilled veggies on separate plates and serve immediately!
Note: A few things are not included in the ingredients and are assumed you have them at home such as oil, salt, and pepper. You will also need aluminum foil to make the veggie pouches.
