What to Serve with Cowboy Salsa

I love to add this cowboy salsa on top of Tex-Mex burgers. You can make your own or buy pre-seasoned burgers at the grocery store.

I like to use MorningStar Farms Tex-Mex Burgers, as they are delicious and are a 100% plant based protein from beans and rice. These quarter pound burgers are perfectly seasoned with green chiles, jalapeno peppers and red peppers. These vegan burgers pack 11 grams of protein from black beans, pinto beans, garbanzo beans and rice. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy these burgers!
