Sassy Southwestern Burgers

Serves 4

1 lb lean ground beef
6 Tbsp salsa
2 Tbsp taco seasoning mix (from 1.25 oz pkg)
4 burger buns, split
4 (1-oz) slices hot pepper Mont Jack cheese

Heat grill. In medium bowl, combine ground beef, 2 Tbsp of the salsa and the taco seasoning mix; mix well. Shape mixture into 4 patties, 1/2 inch thick.

When ready to grill, place patties on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4-6 inches from medium coals. Cook 11-13 minutes or until patties are thoroughly cooked, turning once.

Meanwhile, place buns, cut side down, on grill. Cook 1-2 minutes or until buns are lightly toasted. Place 1 slice of cheese on each patty; cook an additional 1 minute or until cheese is melted.

Place patties on bottom halves of buns. Top each with 1 Tbsp salsa and top half of bun.
