May is National Burger Month and Cinco de Mayo is as good a reason as any to partake in south of the border flavors this weekend. Roasted Green Chili Burgers seemed like the ideal recipe to celebrate both and light the grill. Smoky chilies and cheese mixed right in the burger, topped with salsa mayonnaise and grilled sweet onions for a flavor explosion in every single bite. I can almost imagine the aroma of those chilies roasting right now. Oh, and you can bet we’ll be enjoying the Sprouted Wheat Burger Buns stashed in the freezer!
The warm spring weather has whispered invitations of dining outside—according to my husband, everything tastes better outdoors—and this weekend looks like the perfect time to pull out the wintering chair cushions. What could be better than a massive bowl of guacamole, friends around the table, warm weather, and Roasted Green Chili Burgers on the grill? Okay, maybe a pitcher of margaritas and a salted glass … no blenders, please, only rocks will do.
Holidays and food themes do inspire, but around here, any day that ends in “y” is a good day to share good food.
