Santa Fe Burger


On Friday, the kiddos and I were at the grocery store, as I needed to pick something up for dinner. I was going to make a taco salad with one of those roasted chickens, when all of a sudden, our oldest requested burgers. I thought about it, and said ok, but then I was too lazy to put everything back, so I decided to make Santa Fe Burgers, and boy were they tasty! The burgers had a salsa mayo, roasted poblanos, caramelized onions, and guacamole…I forgot to add the pepperjack cheese, but we didn’t miss the cheese!
