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

This Tex Mex Burger is perfect for grilling season or can be made year-round in a skillet on the stove. BUBBA beef burgers are topped with sliced jalapeños, creamy guacamole and pico de gallo. You will love the fresh, festive toppings on your burgers!

TEX MEX BURGER 

There is something so good about a grilled burger topped with your favorite tex mex toppings.

Today’s Tex Mex Burger is inspired by my two favorite tex mex ingredients- guacamole and pico de gallo. 

I just love both of those so much and eat them weekly. 

Today’s burger is topped with a fresh pico de gallo and a creamy guacamole along with sliced jalapeños.

It is such a simple burger but so delicious. 

Today’s Tex Mex Burger is in partnership with BUBBA burger.

You might remember when I shared 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.

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

BUBBA burgers are such a great option to have in your freezer for a busy night. 

They are also so convenient. 

You can pull them straight out of the freezer and put them on the grill or in a skillet and they will be ready to eat in under 10 minutes.

They are gluten-free and use one ingredient, beef! No additives or preservatives.

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!

HOW DO YOU MAKE A TEX MEX BURGER?

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

Cook your Original 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 GUACAMOLE: Mix the avocado, lime juice, salt, tomatoes and cilantro {optional} in a medium mixing bowl until a creamy guacamole is created.

Combine the ingredients for the pico de gallo and mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning.

TO ASSEMBLE YOUR BURGERS: Place the bottom of the bun on a plate. 

Top with jalapenos, a couple spoonfuls of guacamole, pico de gallo and the top of the bun. Enjoy!

WHAT MODIFICATIONS CAN I MAKE TO THIS TEX MEX BURGER?

CHEESE: Cheese is always a nice addition to a burger. I love pepper jack, sharp cheddar or cotija cheese on this burger. 

VEGETABLES: I love topping burgers with vegetables, especially grilled ones. If you have bell peppers, poblanos or sweet baby peppers on hand you should grill those up and add them to the burger. Other ideas are sliced radish, lettuce or tomato.

GREENS: Greens are always a nice addition. I especially like romaine lettuce, arugula or a mixture of greens. 

SALSA: Salsa is my favorite addition to this Tex Mex Burger. I love adding this Homemade Salsa, Mango and Black Bean Salsa, Avocado Tomatillo Salsa or this Easy Homemade Salsa Verde

WHAT SHOULD I SERVE WITH THIS TEX MEX BURGER RECIPE?

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 Salad or this Lemon Arugula Salad with Pine Nuts
