CHA CHA CHA Charcoal Burgers
2 lbs. lean ground beef
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup finely crushed tortilla chips
2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
8 hamburger buns, split
1 cup (4 oz.) Sargento® Fancy Nacho & Taco Shredded Cheese
3/4 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
3/4 cup shredded lettuce
Chopped banana peppers or pepperoncini (optional)
Combine ground beef, salsa, tortilla chips, chili powder and salt in medium bowl; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 8 patties.
Place hamburger bun tops, cut-side up, in pan large enough to hold one layer. Divide cheese evenly over buns; cover with foil. Place on edge of preheated charcoal grill 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Grill patties on preheated medium-hot grill; grill 5 minutes each side or until no longer pink in center. Serve on hamburger bun bottoms; top with tomatoes, lettuce and, if desired, peppers. Cover with bun tops, cheese-side down.
