Sharing is caring!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BUBBA burger. All opinions are 100% mine.

This Fajita Lettuce Burger uses BUBBA angus beef burgers that are topped with your favorite fajita style bell peppers and onions and served on a lettuce wrap. You will love this low carb option that is still flavorful and filling!

There is something so good about the bell peppers and onions that are used in fajitas that is so good.

I love how tender the bell peppers and onions get and the rich flavors from the taco seasoning that are added. 

One night when I was making fajitas I had a realization that the bell peppers and onions would be a great topping for a burger. 

Today’s Fajita Lettuce Burger is in partnership with BUBBA burger.

You might remember when I shared this Tex Mex Burger last month that is topped with guacamole and pic de gallo. Or this Easy Avocado Burger which used a creamy guacamole to top your favorite BUBBA burger. 

And then a mouthwatering Greek Burger Recipe which topped the burger with a creamy tzatziki sauce.

And lastly I shared this Easy Blue Cheese Burger which mixed two of my favorite ingredients together, beef and blue cheese.  

There have been so many delicious ways to make BUBBA burgers and I hope you have found a few you like!

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THESE FAJITA LETTUCE BURGERS?

HOW DO YOU MAKE A FAJITA LETTUCE BURGER?

TO GRILL THE BURGERS: Heat the grill to medium high heat.

Cook your Angus BUBBA burgers on the grill straight from the freezer (no thawing required). Grill for 5-6 minutes on each side.

When the juices begin to rise to the top of the burger it is time to flip them. Burgers are done when they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.

FOR THE FAJITA TOPPING: Thinly slice the bell peppers and onion . Heat 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium hight heat. 

Add the bell peppers and onion along with 2 teaspoons of taco seasoning. Sauce for about 10 minutes or until the bell peppers and onion are soft. Taste and adjust seasoning and add salt and pepper. 

TO ASSEMBLE YOUR BURGERS: Place a large iceberg lettuce leaf on a plate.

Top with a slice of tomato, the burger and then your fajita bell peppers and onions.  Enjoy!

WHY I LOVE BUBBA BURGERS?

There are many reasons to love BUBBA burgers.

First, I love how convenient they are for those busy nights.

The nice thing with these burgers is that you can take them from the freezer and put them straight on the grill or skillet.

They are ready in 10 minutes – juicy, flavorful and perfect to add all your favorite toppings to. 

They are a life-saver on those nights you are scrambling to get dinner on the table. 

Second, I really like that there is only ONE ingredient in BUBBA angus burgers – 100% USDA Angus Beef.

No additives or preservatives which makes me happy. 

Another thing I love about BUBBA burger is the variety they offer- from beef, to turkey, to plant-based, they have options for everyone available nationwide. All varieties are also Gluten-Free!

WHAT SHOULD I SERVE WITH THESE LETTUCE BURGERS?

POTATOES: Potatoes are almost always served next to my burgers. I love these Air Fryer Twice Baked Potatoes, Gouda Smashed Potatoes or these Spicy Lebanese Potatoes

VEGETABLES: When I make burgers I like to serve a vegetable with it. I especially like these Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables, Simple Garlic Parmesan Green Beans or Turmeric Cauliflower

SALADS: I love salads so I often serve at least two with my burgers. Some that I love are this Summer Orzo Pasta Salad, Mediterranean Bean Salad, Mexican Street Corn Salador this Lemon Arugula Salad with Pine Nuts
