Queso Burgers

We had a little farewell BBQ right before I left North Carolina. I decided to make these amazing queso burgers. We love queso and we love burgers… queso+burgers= mind blown!

This was my hardest challenge to face not being able to eat one of these amazing burgers. The cheesey queso dripping down a freshly grilled burger? So yummy! I was able to get through and resist and eat a salad. Life is hard sometimes. But in the words of my husband, “These burgers are like a fiesta queso explosion in your mouth and are amazing!” I should have him start writing the blog! 🙂
