Sizzling with flavour! This Tex-Mex Burger has a lot of taste appeal and the visual isn't half-bad, either. Your mouth will explode with the flavours of spicy-hot Tex-Mex cuisine, tempered with a guacamole dressing. Members of the Kitchen Tourists suggested ingredients suitable for this delectable treat and so: Ed&Theresa - avocado; Muffin Goddess - lime; MA HIKER - hot sauce; fluffernutter - chipotle in adobo; Melody Ashcraft - tomato; Mandy from Oz - scallions; Laffer - cilantro; ms.susan - chili powder; TansGram - monterey jack cheese; and I provided the pickled jalapeno rings as per Pickled Jalapeno Rings. I'm sure you'll agree that these ingredients all came together sublimely to make the best burger ever. I would also like to thank Rita L, without whom this burger would just not have been possible. If Rita hadn't sent me a tin of chipotle in adobo last Fall, and if I hadn't frozen what I hadn't used then, this burger would just not have been possible! THANK YOU RITA!!! (this recipe is based on one I have already posted but seriously adapted)
