“I couldn't find quite the right burger for tonight so I made this one up and thought it turned out rather well -Hope you try it. I did not include possible garnishs' to the ingredient list because it is up to you what you enjoy on a burger. Avocado would go will on this one. I added 2 cheese slices, raw sweet onion sliced 1/4" thick, sliced tomatoes and my choice of Salsa was Habanero/ Mango Salsa. I used "El Mexicano" prepared Carne Asado powder however there are recipes on Zaar if you wish to make your own spice powder. For this burger I like a full 6 ozs of meat. Make as many burgers as you wish just keep repeating the recipe”
