Stuffed Taco Burgers
These burgers are great for a festive outdoor barbecue! Wear a sombrero and chili apron while grilling. Serve these burgers along with salsa and chips, guacamole, corn on the cob, margaritas and other Mexican delights. Throw in a pinata and a little Mexican music!
2 lb. lean ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 c. plain bread crumbs
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
1 small can chopped green chilis (drained)
grated sharp cheddar cheese
large hamburger buns
Mix ground beef with taco seasoning, bread crumbs, eggs and chilis. With clean hands, flatten 1/2 c. hamburger mixture on a piece of waxed paper. Place a piece of waxed paper on top and, using a rolling pin, flatten to about 1/4 in. thick and 5-6" in diameter. Do the same with another patty. Remove paper and put 1 tbsp. DRAINED chunky salsa in the middle of 1 of the flattened patties and sprinkle with 1 tbsp. grated cheese. Remove the paper from the top of the other patty and carefully place it on top of the patty with cheese/salsa and remove paper. Carefully seal the edges of the burgers to hold in the stuffing and place aside. Continue until all burgers are completed. Grill over low coals about 7 min. on each side, turning only once, carefully removing. Serve on a grilled hamburger bun and garnish with sour cream, more cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomato.
Yields approx. 6-8 stuffed burgers.
