We have alot of fresh vegetables growing in our garden this year, and we're enjoying coming up with new ways to eat them. This was something we came up with after having leftover pico de gallo from fajitas the night before. We mixed the pico with the ground beef and it was very tasty, but the burgers were falling apart because the tomato chunks were too big and not sticking in the paties. But the flavor was all there so we gave it another try with a plan in mind, mince those veggies as small as possible. The results were fantastic, I can't even imagine why we didnt try this before now! plain burgers will never be enough in this house again!!
Cut up the tomatoes and onions, chop the cilantro.
I used my mixer to make the burger mixture with the ground beef, onions, tomatoes, cumin, peppers, hot sauce, cilantro and garlic. Then formed into patties.
Hubby grilled them for 7 to 10 minutes on each side then topped them with the monterey jack cheese.
We put them on burger rolls and topped them with the avocado and sour cream.
Hubby topped his with diced fresh jalapenos from the garden.
I put a little salsa on mine.
