Southwestern Beyond Burger


Total Time:



Even though we are technically in the home stretch of summer, I can’t quite wrap my mind around that fact. So I’m going to ignore it and continue grilling until I start getting rained on. That’s the only way forward as I see it. And today we’re grilling up these epic Southwestern Beyond Burgers to celebrate!

If you’re never had The Beyond Burger from the company, Beyond Meat, it’s the first plant-based burger that looks, cooks and tastes like beef, but is made entirely from plants without ANY gluten, soy or GMOs. I first heard about this through Matt and Adam, obviously! They had tasted it at a restaurant and called with intel that this couldn’t possibly be possible. Well, turns out, it’s totally the real deal! This revolutionary plant-based burger is good for you, it’s good for the planet and it’s freaking delish!

I’d say Thomas and I are like 85% plant based on a weekly basis so these Beyond Burgers are giving me LIFE! I can whip up any number of my burger concoctions and still feel fantastic! The Beyond Burgers are loaded with 20 grams of plant protein per patty, have absolutely no soy, gluten, or GMOs and they’re even sold in the meat case at over 10,000 grocery Beyond Burgers!

Being an Arizona girl turned California girl, I naturally gravitate towards burgers that have avocado and tons of flavor and this southwestern rendition does NOT disappoint! Tons of caramelized onions and poblanos, avocado, pico, toasted buns… it’s perfection. So, find yourself some Beyond Burgers, make this over the weekend and thank me later!! Xoxo
