I love these burgers, which feature guacamole and juicy southwestern flavored burgers with pepper jack cheese. Treat yourself and your guests to these "salsa" burgers, along with something good like skillet fries with onions and a black bean and corn salad.

Very tasty! Loved the avocado-mayo with the cheese and well-seasoned burgers. I halved the recipe and made 4 burgers which we did not eat on buns because we are reducing our carb intake. We'll definitely have again. Thanks for posting.
Delicious and easy meal. I used ground turkey breast in substitution for the ground beef, and light sour cream instead of mayo in the salsa. We grilled the burgers and enjoyed a lovely outdoor meal. Thanks!
