Fajita Burgers

These fajita burgers are topped with grilled veggies, avocado, cheese, and a dollop of sour cream! Perfect for summer grilling.

The other day my kids asked me if I could maybe bake them something. Like in the oven.

Y’all, I think they done lost their minds.

It is summer. It is hot. We have a grill. We will use the grill.

It’s possible I’ve overdone it on the brats and dogs the past few weeks, though. Maybe they’re rebelling against tubular shaped meats? Weird.

Anyway, the Fourth of July is coming up and I knew I’d be grilling out for that. I mean, I’m an American, aren’t I? Grilled meat and the Fourth of July go hand in hand.

We love these steak fajita burgers! Juicy and perfect for grilling!

I’d done enough tubular meat, so I knew I was going to focus on a summery burger recipe. Maybe a fajita burger? Topped with some avocado and plenty of grilled veggies? Yes. Sign me up for that.

Y’all are not going to believe how good this is. And yes, I just snuck Mexican food into a burger. I can stop with the Mexican food any time I want. It’s not a problem.

These fajita burgers are topped with grilled veggies, avocado, cheese, and a dollop of sour cream! Perfect for summer grilling.

Anyway, I grilled up some burgers, seasoned ’em with taco seasoning, topped ’em with grilled peppers and onions, some cheddar, a bit of avocado, and some fresh cilantro. Then I grilled the buns and spread on some sour cream.

Burger perfection, you guys.

I’m kinda thinking that next time I might drown the whole thing in queso. What do you guys think?

What are you planning on grilling this Fourth of July?

I topped these steak fajita burgers with cheddar, avocado, cilantro, and sour cream! Don't forget the grilled peppers and onions!
