momma's munchies!

it's monday again, so you know what that means. time to go to the grocery store. not my most favorite thing. but that means i get to eat. which IS my favorite thing.

in the spirit of the season (that being summer) and the upcoming holiday (that being independence day) i thought i'd share a little grill loveliness. plus it's the theme for momma's munchies over at waking up williams.

so here is a yummy burger recipe that i like to claim is from joel's repertoire. but really it's on the back of a bag of sargento cheese.

Zesty Chipotle Cheddar Burgers



Combine ground beef, 1 cup salsa, 1/2 cup green onions, 1/2 cup tortilla chips, garlic salt and chili powder in large bowl. Shape beef mixture into 8 patties, 4 inches in diameter and 1/2-inch thick. Preheat grill or broiler.

Grill patties, 5 minutes each side or until no longer pink in center (see below). Grill or lightly toast hamburger buns. Top patties with 1 slice cheese before removing from grill or broiler; let melt.

Place patties on buns. Top with remaining salsa, tortilla chips and green onions.

that's it! wonderful yumminess on the grill. seriously, these are some of the best burgers ever. hope you enjoy!!

they actually aren't TOO bad. i like a little heat, but we have made these several times, and they are pretty tame. but i do have a tolerance, so, maybe i am

hope you enjoy them!!
