Ingredient List

  • 1 1/2 lb (750 g) ground beef
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Old El Paso* Thick 'N Chunky Salsa
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 burger buns, split, toasted
  • 6 tomato slices
  • 6 avocado slices
  • 6 tbsp (90 mL) sour cream

Preparation

  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In medium bowl, mix beef, salsa and bread crumbs. Shape mixture into 12 (4-inch) patties, 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle rounded tablespoon cheese in centre of 6 patties, spreading slightly. Top with remaining patties; press edges together firmly to seal.
  2. Place patties on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 11 to 13 minutes, turning once, until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 165ºF.
  3. Place burgers on bottom halves of buns. Top each with tomato and avocado slice and 1 tablespoon sour cream. If desired, top with additional salsa. Cover with top halves of buns.

Expert Tips

  • To broil patties, place on broiler pan. Broil with tops about 4 inches from heat for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once, until meat thermometer inserted in centre of patties reads 165ºF.
