Double Salsa Burgers
- For salsa, in a bowl combine tomato, green sweet pepper, onion, jalapeno peppers, garlic, cilantro, and salt. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the salsa. Cover and chill remaining salsa until serving time.
- In another bowl combine ground beef and the 2 tablespoons of salsa; mix well. Shape mixture into six 1/2-inch-thick oval patties. Grill patties on an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 13 to 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in side of patty registers 160 degrees F., turning patties once halfway through grilling time. Arrange shredded lettuce on individual plates. Top with burgers, remaining salsa, and cheddar cheese. Serve with sour cream and/or guacamole. Makes 6 servings.
