  1. 1/2 cup mayo
  2. 1/4 cup sour cream
  3. 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  4. Garlic & onion powder (about a teaspoon each)
  5. 2 tablespoons of milk
  6. 1/2 teaspoon of dill weed, cumin, paprika, dried parsley, and chili powder
  7. Couple splashes of sriracha or hot sauce
  8. Salt and pepper to taste if needed
  1. Season meat with the onion & garlic powders, Tony's, Accent, chili powder, cumin, and Worcestershire sauce.
  2. Add an egg and 1/3 cup of bread crumbs.
  3. Add the water. (Don't skip this! It makes the burgers super moist.)
  4. Mix well
  5. Cook the burgers to your desired level of doneness. (Is that a word? Looks funny. I think it's right tho.)
  6. Butter one side of a tortilla and place that side down into a skillet.
  7. Sprinkle on cheese. (Heat on low to give the cheese time to melt without burning the tortilla.)
  8. Sprinkle on bacon and add pico de gallo.
  9. Remove from the skillet. (Use a spatula! I wasn't that smart the first time. lol)
  10. Now, repeat all of that with the other tortilla.
  11. Add the meat, and spread on some mexi ranch (I'll share that recipe if you need it, but Kraft is fine.)
  12. Top it with lettuce
  13. Then the other tortilla
  14. Slice in half
  15. Enjoy!
  1. Guacamole is amazing with these burgers as well! Serve with fries or chips and salsa!
