Chimichurri Burgers with Avocado & Monterey Jack and Cabbage Slaw

As you know I got to try HelloFresh, a meal delivery subscription service that delivers farm fresh ready to make meals to your door. I absolutely loved it, so I thought I would share with you a few of the recipes I got to try. This meal box also came with grass-fed Angus beef. Everything you need is in the box for each meal you have pre-selected.

I hope you try this recipe, I wasn’t a fan of cilantro until I made this. I was a little skeptical because I have never liked cilantro but I wanted to try the full experience so I followed the recipe. Guess what?! I loved it! I hope you do too!
