I don't have a long post for y'all today .... but what I do have is one super yummy burger!! I have been craving some Southwest-inspired flavors, but not necessarily Mexican food. If that makes sense?! This burger really hit the spot! We served this with chips and salsa, with fresh fruit on the side for an easy and fuss-free weeknight meal! Enjoy!



Southwest Cheeseburger
Printable recipe
Yield: 4 burgers

1½ lb. ground beef
Salt and pepper, to taste
1½ tbsp. oil
½ cup salsa
½ cup homemade guacamole
4 slices Pepper Jack cheese
4 good-quality hamburger buns

Preheat a gas grill over high heat or a charcoal grill until it glows bright orange and ashes over.

Divide and shape the ground beef into 4 patties. Season the burgers with salt and pepper. Brush the burgers with oil. Grill the burgers until browned and slightly charred on the first side (about 3-4 minutes). Flip the burgers over and continue to cook until desired doneness - about 4 minutes for medium rare, longer for a more done burger. 

To assemble the sandwich, place 2 tbsp. of salsa on one cut half of each sandwich (I prefer it on the top half). Place 2 tbsp. of guacamole on the other cut half of each sandwich (I prefer this on the bottom). Top the bottom bun with a hamburger patty. Top with cheese, then the top bun.

Creamy Pea Salad - This salad is a nice change from the typical potato or pasta salads. It requires very little cooking and a little bit of chopping - it could easily be a no cook recipe if you buy precooked bacon! It doesn't get much easier than that!
