Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tasting burger Loved this burger and it was a hit with my family and friends. Everyone said they loved how the sauce gave the burger a sweet and tangy taste. I personally don't like avocado at all but loved it mixed with Pico De Gallo to make the pineapple guacamole. Had to make these again for dinner the next day.
