Throughout the next few posts, I will write about what we ate, starting with the Tex Mex Burger. I got this recipe from a blog called Mennonite Girls Can Cook.
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup fine bread crumbs
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 cup grated onion
1 1/2 tablespoon dry taco seasoning
Mexican cheese blend, shredded
Mix all ingredients EXCEPT cheese with your hands. Form into 4 patties. Place on a hot grill and cook to your liking. Once nearly done, top with shredded cheese and heat until cheese melts.
For Pico de Gallo topping:
3 Roma tomatoes, diced
3/4 cup yellow & red bell pepper combined, diced
1/2 cup red onion, diced (I didn't use)
1/2 small jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1 teaspoon sugar
juice of 1 lime
Mix all ingredients together in a non metallic bowl. Cover and refrigerate for up to one day in advance.
1/2 cup mayo
Mix mayo with hot sauce to your taste.
1 avacado, sliced
4 Kaiser rolls
Place burger on roll, top with pico de gallo, slather spicy mayo on top part of bun and add sliced avacado.
Eventhough it was Bec's bday, she still took food pix for me! Thank you!
