I was in the mood to fire up the grill and these Ranchero Onion Burgers looked pretty good. This is a simple recipe that mixes salsa and shredded cheese into the burger before it is formed into patties resulting in a good juicy burger. I didn’t toast the buns for this recipe but I think that would be a nice added touch.
If you’re looking for a grilled burger recipe that’s a little different give this one a try; they’re really good.
