Guadalajara Burger With Tequila-Spiked Salsa

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 5 mins

The salsa that goes with this burger is a refreshing step away from your typical tomatoes and lettuce. The recipe makes more salsa than you need, so serve the extra on the side with tortilla chips. You can make the salsa ahead of time. Originally from my favorite cookbook Cooking Light 2004.
