Guacamole Taco Burgers

I have a confession to make.

I'm done with the summer. Done. I need cooler weather, homework for the kids, and soup on my stovetop. Right now, more than anything, I need my routine back.

As much as I love the summer, sometimes there really can be too much of a good thing.  After almost three straight months of playing, swimming, packing, flying, moving, beaching, eating (a lot), and road tripping, I'm EXHAUSTED!  I love you summer, but it's time to slow down.

 Fortunately, just because summer is coming to an end, doesn't mean that we have to hibernate in the kitchen.  There is still plenty of time to enjoy fresh summer food and outdoor grilling.  And while you still have time, might I recommend these killer burgers. Reeni, who has an amazing blog at Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice (seriously, I pin almost everything she posts), came up with these, and they are as delicious as they sound. A taco flavored burger, topped with cheese and guacamole, nestled in a homemade cornbread foccacia bun. Gooey, cheesy, heaven.

So when it does finally cool down and you're wishing you had your summer back, throw these on the grill. The bright flavors will satiate your summer appetite, for an evening at least.

I'll direct you to Reeni's page for the recipe because her pictures and descriptions do this burger way more justice. Enjoy!

I agree. I'm so ready for fall and the cooler weather. That is one good looking burger, but it's the cornbread focaccia that's stealing my heart right now. It looks so fluffy and soft.

I love Reeni's posts too. I'm not sure I'm ready for summer to end though.

I'm done also. This has been THE WORST. But dishes like this make it slightly not so bad. :)

I agree after this hot summer, fall is sounding mighty good. The burger looks really yummy!

I can handle the summer a few weeks more but we had some nice nights lately, down into the 50s. Nice.

The burger does look rocking! I saw those buns and thought, "Oh no she didn't!" What a great idea.
