Tex Mex Burgers and Memorial Day

We may earn money from the companies or products mentioned in this post.

Today we’re off to meet my parents at a cemetery. In honor of Memorial Day and our fallen Soldiers, we have a tradition to visit gravesides in remembrance of our fallen countrymen, as well as our ancestors. Originally called Decoration Day, my family uses Memorial Day to place flowers and flags (if the city hasn’t done it) on those graves. Thank you to all our current soldiers who place their life in danger to protect our freedoms.  You are truly Hero’s.

Memorial Day also is a great day to kick off the BBQ season. I have a great recipe from eMeals to share with you, as well as a giveaway!

Tex Mex Burgers


1½ teaspoons each chili powder
1½ teaspoons cumin
1½ teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1½ lbs ground chuck
4 slices pepper jack cheese
4 hamburger buns
1 avocado, pitted and sliced


Mix together chili powder, cumin, oregano and salt. Gently fold into ground chuck. Divide into 4 to 6 patties. Grill 6 minutes on each side. Top with cheese slices and cover for 1 minute to melt cheese. Let burgers sit off heat 3 minutes. Serve on toasted buns topped with avocado slices.
