Combine all burger ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix very well, and form into six patties, about 1/2 inch thick. Cook on a griddle, or in a large skillet, over medium-high heat about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Meanwhile toast muffins as desired.

Drain salsa of any accumulated juices, and mix again. Top each muffin half with a burger. Top each burger with a tablespoon of salsa. Serve open faced with other muffin half. Garnish the plates as desired, and pass the remaining salsa.
