Southwest spices are rubbed on the burgers and it is topped with salsa mayonnaise, lettuce and avocado slices. Pretty simple stuff here, especially if you use premade frozen burgers!

Easy flavor booster for frozen burgers in the bag. We especially enjoyed the mayo-salsa topping.

Quite possibly the most amazing burger I've ever had. We used red pepper flakes instead of ground red pepper, but it was still pretty spectacular.

Nice combination of seasonings! I did use chipotle powder instead of red pepper, which worked out fine. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
