South of the Border Burger

Cast your vote for South of the Border Burger

Some days, the ordinary hamburger just isn't satisfying enough. Ground beef patties and the regular toppings just seem blah, especially after the fifth summer barbecue. On those days, kick your burger up a notch with flavors inspired by tacos.

The taco seasoning adds a zesty flavor. Even the sauce can change things up each time by switching between mild and hot.

To allow different people to make their own choices on toppings, provide a "toppings bar" with the various toppings, sauces and even other condiments family and friends may choose to put on tacos.
