We’ve made these before and like them very much, maybe even more than a traditional hamburger. The original calls for avocado, cilantro and tomatillo…my avocado got overripe, the store did not have the tomatillo and the hubby didn’t know there was cilantro in the fridge. We also had a bevy of condiments – ketchup, mayo, ranch, hot sauce.  I do however think that I would have liked this with a nice fresh tomato.
