Burgers are great to grill this time of year. It is fun to jazz them up with different toppings.
It takes them from that plain old backyard burger to something you can have at a party.
For this burger I added bacon, chipotle sauce and if that is not enough guacamole to finish it off.
Lets have more fun with our burgers! What toppings do you like to add to your burgers?
