I agree -- I think it's also called "beetberry" ?

Welcome! I know it as strawberry blite, Chenopodium capitatum. It grows wild here. Same plant as Daniel and Sandy mentioned, different common names. I assume strawberry blite is the most common common name since it's the primary one in the database.
