The Guadalajara

Yield 4 servings
"I was in Guadalajara and had a burger similar to this one," Assistant Food Stylist Kathleen Kanen reports. The salsa that topped the burger was a welcome change from the usual tomato and onion slices, and Kathleen added tequila to her version. The recipe makes more salsa than you'll need for the burgers; serve the extra on the side with baked tortilla chips.
