If you’re contemplating the Beyond Burgers as a meat substitute, let me be the first to tell you that they are amazing.  The patties are amazing and you can jazz them up with any number of toppings to make it reminiscent of your favorite burger. Southwestern Beyond Burger from (@whatsgabycookin)

If you’re never had The Beyond Meat 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.  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! My husband is convinced that the below recipe tastes exactly like the one he had at Carl’s Jr.

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 thousands of grocery stores.

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
