Everyone loves burgers. I sure do. From traditional beef burgers to black bean burgers, I've never had a burger I didn't like.
And these were fantastic. The only way they would have been better if my guacamole had been actual guacamole. The avocados weren't ripe yet, and they didn't mash very well. So instead of smooth & creamy guacamole, I ended up with a chunky avocado salsa.
This burger does have a lot of cilantro going on. I know cilantro is one of those herbs where you either love it or hate it. It doesn't seem like there is very much middle ground. I love it, my husband hates it. But he loved these burgers. It gives it a little something, but there isn't an overwhelming cilantro flavor. So even if you hate it, don't omit it from these.
Anyways. This burger is perfect and I can not wait to make these again!
