    Beautiful BC's Note:

    The best thing about BBQ Season is heating up the grill and inviting friends over for a relaxed and care free afternoon under the hot sun. The best thing about a buffet is the chef gets to enjoy the day too. So send out the invitations, ice up the Corona's and whip up some ice cold margarita's. Then kick back and enjoy these fabulous open faced burgers created especially for you by Z-Best Chefs for ZWT III.

      We were really able to tweek this to our own taste -- hubby with everything, me with guac and swiss cheese (instead of pepper jack), and the toddler just ate some of the chicken plain... Used onion buns instead of bread and it was good :)
