Mexican Chili-Cheese Burgers


If this burger could talk that's what it would say.

But it can't.  Because I cooked it up all Mexican style for Cinco de Mayo and you know something?  I have no regrets.  It was good.  Not just good, I mean REALLY good.  Like, "why didn't I ever think of this before?" good.
