The natural fit is to put the Chef's Line Black Bean Burger on the
new Hilltop Hearth Greek Yogurt Wheat Bun and finish it with the
Chef's Line Greek Yogurt Tzatziki.
It will give you a nice kick from the burger and cool down with
the creamy tzatziki.
But if you want to try something a bit more adventurous...
