fajita burgers

I love summer because of the barbecue season. Sinking my teeth into a burger on a nice hot day is pretty damn nice. (Don't forget the beer too!) We eat a lot of burgers because of all the get togethers we have with friends and family but we like to change it up every once in a while.

I found this recipe for fajita burgers. You're supposed to top it with avocado and salsa (hence making it more fajita-ish) but didn't have avocado kicking around thus wasn't gonna put salsa on top. But I'm sure it would have been really tasty that way too. I would probably put a dollop of sour cream too. Hey, why not?
