That salsa looks like it would be great with something like a cinnamon crisp made from baked tortillas brushed with butter, cinnamon and sugar. The burgers also look fabulous. Do they come out very spicy? My hubby doesn’t like the heat in food as much as I do. Thanks for sharing and I love your pictures! – Amy

I didn’t think they were very spicy but you could always omit the pickled jalapeño peppers! I love your idea of serving them with Cinnamon crips made from baked tortillas!
