Tex-Mex Burger

Even though I regularly follow about a dozen food blogs, there are really only a handful of bloggers that I consistently turn to when I want ideas for certain things. Need a cupcake recipe? Annie’s Eats is the way to go. Margaritas? Definitely Confections of a Foodie Bride. Bars and brownies? Hello, Pinch of Yum. But, I’ve discovered that some bloggers have more than one forte. For example, not only is the Foodie Bride a margarita master, she also makes a mean burger. Seriously, there are like 10 completely different but equally mouth-watering burger recipes on her blog. So, when Dan wanted something beefy for lunch today, I knew where to turn for inspiration. 

Normally, when we make burgers I just slap some seasoned ground beef on the grill, throw on some bacon and cheese, and call it a day. But, after perusing the Foodie Bride’s beef selection, I was inspired to branch out and get creative. This Tex-Mex burger is a slight adaptation of her Texican burger, and is so, so good. Wrap your mind around this: a sturdy bun slathered with zesty guacamole, topped with a juicy beef patty, smothered in spicy homemade queso, and dressed up with crisp jalapeno slices and pico de gallo. Mmmm, right? This is a burger that requires at least 5 napkins. Maybe more. It’s hard to keep track when you’re busy trying to cram every last gooey bite as fast as you can into your mouth.

    You’re right – this burger looks to die for! I’m a fan of avocado on most anything, but this burger has every thing I could ever hope for… I’m featuring this post in today’s Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution as always). Thanks for continuing to inspire me with your creations…
