RECIPE BACKSTORY
Cheesy tomato goodness! I love using Rotel in recipes and this recipe may top them all! I used a knife and fork to eat mine! The ooey gooey cheese running all thru the burger and I wanted to eat it lady like and not with a messy face and hands like my family! :) What a tasty burger! It didn't need any other toppings like lettuce, tomato, onion, etc. Toasting the bun is an important step in my opinion! Nice crispy bun with all the other goodness makes for the perfect burger! I use mild Rotel and it is still a tad spicy but that's what Rotel is famous for, right? Delicious-ness in a bun!
