Texican Burger

This was one of the burgers featured in 'Emerils Best Burger Ever Challenge' on GMA. I have made it several times and my family loves it. Its like eating a taco on a bun. I have 'lightned it up' to fit into my families healther eating habits but it is even better in the full fat version.

    Of course - I love it! This was my recipe from Emeril's Best Burger in America contest on Good Morning America several years ago. Great idea to lighten it up, as long as you don't scimp on the sliced avocado. A dollop of store bought or homemade guacamole is an easy alternative, too. I made these at the end of the summer for a group of boys heading back to college and they said these burgers were THE BEST they'd ever tasted! Ha!
