Mexican Chili-Cheese Burgers

Recommended Posts

Hi Buddies ~


Made this one for dinner tonight, and it was a nice twise on regular old ham-or-turkey burgers. The sour cream is a great idea, which I might try on other burgers!

Serves: 4

Points per Serving: 8



1 pound ground round

1 cup chopped seeded plum tomato

1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons minced seeded jalapeno pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Cooking spray

4 (3/4-ounce) slices reduced-fat Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese

1/4 cup fat-free sour cream

4 (1-1/2-ounce) hamburger buns

4 iceberg lettuce leaves

8 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato

Grilled onions (optional)




Combine first 9 ingredients in a bowl; stir well. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping into 1/2-inch-thick patties.


Prepare grill. Place patties on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes on each side or until done. Place 1 cheese slice on top of each patty; cover and grill an additional minute or until cheese melts.


Spread 1 tablespoon of sour cream over top half of each bun, and set aside. Place patties on bottom halves of buns; top each with lettuce, tomato, onions (if desired), and top half of bun.
