Fajita Burgers

I was never really a fan of home made hamburgers, until I tried this recipe. I like to smoosh up some ripe avocado and smear it all over the top bun before layering on the lettuce and onion, or sometimes a bit of spicy salsa as well. They are really, really delicious.

Adapted from Canadian Living

1 egg
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 lb lean ground beef
1 sweet red pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp chili powder

Mix the egg, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, red pepper garlic, lemon juice and chili powder together in a large bowl. Mix in the ground beef. Shape into four patties and grill over medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until thermometer inserted into the center of the patty reads 160 F. I often cook these on the stove top instead of the BBQ and they are just as good.

Slip into buns (or try tortillas) and top with salsa and slices of avocado. Sometimes we have tried various kinds of salsa or spicy cheese too, and those are tasty.

Makes 4 burgers.
