Hamburger Fiesta

Fiesta Burger
Create a fiesta in your mouth with an old fashion hamburger topped with monterey jack cheese and pico de gallo.

I love monterey jack cheese and freshly made pico de gallo. Even better a hamburger topped with my two fave ingredients. Cooking for a large family is a challenge especially in this economy. Day after day making the same meals can become boring, and the food becomes tasteless. So here I was, faced with making dinner,and not feeling the old hamburger thing. Then the light bulb went off in my head. So I decided to spice thing up. Here’s how I did it. Before cooking up the hamburgers make your pico de gallo.

Pico de gallo:

This zesty salsa treat is a delicious topping for just about anything. It’s easy to make and a great party dish.

1 pckage of yellow and red cherry tomatoes


Red or white onion

Lemon juice

all season salt

Thai peppers (or any type of chili pepper you prefer)

The recipe does not have measurement because this is the kind of thing that i based more on the chef preference. Slice everything up to into small pieces because remember you will need to put this on top of the hamburger. I used a mortar and pestle to crush the peepers because it really brings out the heat in the pepper Thai Pepper. Now you can cook up your burgers and melt the monterey jack cheese just before the hamburger finishes cooking. You can top the burger with your usual toppings, such as lettuce, and condiments that make you want to say…mmmmmmm. Until next time bon appetite!

The vibrant red is appealing to the eye and the smaller tomatoes have a sweeter taste.
Use the tomatoes for flavor and coloring. the look of food is just as important as the flavor.
