- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 1 large egg
- 0.5 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
- 4 slices Monterey jack pepper or cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 2 teaspoons chipotle hot sauce
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
- 4 hamburger buns, any kind
- 4 tomato slices
- 4 red onion slices
In a large bowl, mix together the beef, salsa, egg and the 1/2 packet of taco seasoning. Shape into 4 burgers patties. On a greased grill or large frying pan up to high heat, cook the burgers for 5-6 minutes on each side, turning once, or until desired doneness. Add cheese to melt 2 minutes before burgers are finished cooking.
Place the mayonnaise, sour cream, chipotle hot sauce and cilantro in a small bowl; mix thoroughly. Serve burgers on buns spread with chipotle sauce and topped with tomato and onion slices.
