We all love a good burger, especially one with a little spice and Latin flare. These are perfect to make on Sunday prep day for lunches throughout the week or to store in the freezer for a quick dinner option. They are a excellent balance of protein, carbs, and fat to keep your blood sugar balanced and keep you satisfied.

To make these gluten-free, wrap the burgers in lettuce or use gluten-free buns.  If you choose to wrap them in lettuce, serve them with some sweet potato carrot fries or a fruit for healthy dose of carbohydrates to keep it balanced.
