I love how basically anything I’m crushing on becomes “my jam.”

For example:

“This burger is totally my jam!”

“Bourbon is totally my jam!”

” ‘N Syncs ‘Bye Bye Bye’ is still totally my jam!”

Ok, maybe lets leave out that last example. But really if this conversation was taking place in real life I would lean over and say “Just kidding! ‘N Sync really is still my jam.”

You know what else is still my jam? Sabra salsa. I don’t just talk about this stuff because I work with Sabra I talk about it because I really freaking love the stuff. The reason I love it? It doesn’t have that weird mushy salsa from the jar taste. This baby is fresh and packed full of chunky flavor. It comes in several different flavors but my favorite is the homestyle medium salsa.

What can I say – I’m a traditional homestyle kind of girl.

It’s almost Cinco de Mayo so I thought this salsa packed burger would be perfect for dinner. It’s not your normal ho-hum burger – this baby is packed full of shredded cheese, salsa and tons of spice. Then I grilled it up, covered it in cheese, topped it with salsa and avocado and called it a day.

Because I’m a nice wife I shared some burgers but if I’m being honest I wanted to eat all of them for lunch.

Yes, all of them.

Yes, this recipe makes 4-6 burgers. Stop judging me.

N'SYNC will always and forever be my jam. But I can make room in my heart for this salsa, too.

Ain't nothin' wrong with a good boy band. Love me some N Sync. I have been munching on Sabra's salsa nonstop. It's delicious-so fresh and spicy. Love this burger. Pinned.
