This Fiesta Burgers recipe post is sponsored by Michelob ULTRA but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
There’s not much I love better than charcoal grilled burgers in the summertime, and I’m so glad I can still fit my favorite fiesta burgers into my healthier lifestyle this year. I’m extremely conscious of what I eat and drink, and I’ve been a heck of a lot more active so I don’t have to make unreasonable sacrifices either.
Life is good.
And these burgers are amazing.
The best way to wash down fiesta burgers is with your favorite beer. We love the pure, refreshing taste of Michelob ULTRA Gold. It’s made with organic grains, is triple-filtered and is free of artificial colors and flavors. Best of all, it fits perfectly in a healthy lifestyle with a mere 85 calories and 2.5 carbs.
It’s NEW so you have to go on the hunt for it. Check this product locator to find it near you.
And it perches nicely on the side of the grill making ice-cold refreshment for the grill master easy. 😉
If you spend the rest of the day outdoors with the family (like I do) playing badminton, watching the sun go down and making s’mores, it’s nice to know you’re making a better choice with Michelob Ultra.
