Chips & Salsa Burgers

>> Thursday, July 7, 2011

Combining one of my favorite appetizers - chips and salsa - with a burger? Yes, please! The recipe sounded just weird enough that I knew I had to try it out. And I'm glad I did! There are very few ingredients in this recipe, but it was surprisingly flavorful. The salsa kept the meat moist and the chips added a nice little crunch. This is probably in my top three favorite burger recipes. Really simple, really good!

Chips & Salsa Burger
adapted from Sargento (I originally saw the recipe on another blog - unfortunately I can't remember which one! My apologies to the original blogger!)

1 lb ground beef
1/3 cup salsa (I used a cilantro salsa)
1/3 cup tortilla chips, crushed
1/3 c shredded Mexican cheese blend
1 t chili powder
1/2 t onion powder
1/4 t garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
4 hamburger buns, split open and toasted
Suggested toppings: extra cheese, shredded lettuce, sliced avocado, sliced tomato, pickled jalapenos, crushed tortilla chips, an extra dollop of salsa

In a large bowl, combine beef, salsa, chips, cheese, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Shape into 4 patties.

Grill patties on a medium-hot grill. Grill 5 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in the center. Serve on hamburger buns with desired toppings.
