Mexican Lettuce Wrap Burgers

Mexican Lettuce Wrap Burgers

Sharing is caring!

We wrap up #summergrilling week today. Sad day, I know. But just because it’s the end of this themed week doesn’t mean the grilling will end, right?! We’re just beginning to feel the faint stirrings of summertime (unless you also reside in Colorado. In that case, we haven’t even felt the beginnings of spring, much less summer!). I’m sure though, that these Mexican Lettuce Wrap Burgers will inspire you to dust off the grill and start cooking!

These Mexican Lettuce Wrap Burgers are sponsored by Spice House and BBQ Guys! #ad 

While every one of the recipes I’ve shared with you this week have been gluten free (and mostly dairy free as well), I’ve not shared a Paleo recipe with you yet. So guess what? This one fits the bill! They’re gluten free, grain free, dairy free, Paleo, and Whole30! Woohoo! No matter what dietary restrictions you might be limited to, these burgers are for you! Bursting with flavor, these burgers are topped with grilled pineapple and avocado to give you a great balance of sweet and savory.

Mexican Lettuce Wrapped Burgers 

I used Spice House’s Vulcan Fire spice blend to create these spicy (and delicious!) hamburgers. I also used BBQ Guys’ meat thermometer (I’m completely in love with this little gizmo!) to make sure my burgers came out perfectly! Tender and SO yummy, the Spice House seasoning blend gave it just the right amount of kick and the BBQ Guys’ meat thermometer made sure I pulled these hamburgers off the grill at just the right time! And you know what? You can win all of these products in our raffle below! Even though Summer Grilling week is official over today, you’ve still got another week to enter the giveaway. All you need to know about how to enter is below the recipe. Check it out! #ImaBBQGuy #thespicehouse
