Caribean Frita Burger

I came up with the idea of this burger thinking about my cultural roots. I am puertorrican and when saw your call for recipes I wanted to incorporate my culinary roots into something simple and special. The beef burger contains sofrito, a mixture of different vegetables that makes an unique special flavor. By using this, it is also my way to create a healthy delicious burger for my child,and a way for him to eat his veggies without knowing.I hope you consider this recipe and taste the blend of the flavors & enjoy a delicious and unique burger.
