It’s pretty standard to throw in some loaded nachos, tacos, and margaritas when you celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but we’ve got another idea for you. Woooahhh, hold up: we’re not saying to stop serving those, we’re just saying think about adding this bad boy recipe too: Macho Nacho Burgers. It’s all the things that we love about Mexican food: chili and spices, jalapeno, cheese, and cilantro! Plus, it’s super easy to make.
Thanks again to Marcia Selden Catering for this great recipe. When you make these, shoot us an e-mail or tag us on Instagram. It’s always great to see!
