Special Touch
Keep up the southwestern flavor theme with some veggies on the side. Give these a try: radishes, jicama sticks, cherry tomatoes, green or ripe olives.
Want the Texas taste but afraid of the heat? Tame these tasty burgers by using half the chopped chilies for the burgers. Stir the remaining chopped chilies into half a jar of mild salsa, and serve chips with your own versions of hot and mild salsas.
