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!!

For those that like food with a Mexican flavor this one is for you!  The cilantro in the burger was a great addition. These burgers were not for the faint of heart but the sour cream and the avocado did tone the temp down. These would be great for a tailgate! The Test Kitchen
