Taco Burgers

Love the ease of burgers but the flavor of tacos? This combines the two in a flavor explosion that screams summer fun! The best part - you probably have all the ingredients on hand.

1 1/2 lbs. ground chuck ($2.69)
1 small yellow onion, minced ($.10)
2 cloves garlic, minced ($.05)
1 tsp. cumin ($.05)
1/2 tsp. black pepper ($.05)
1/2 tsp. chili powder ($.05)
3/4 tsp. season salt ($.05)
1 T. cilantro, chopped fine ($.05)
1/4 C. Mexican Chile and Lime marinade (free after coupons)
6 thin slices sharp cheddar ($.65)
6 hamburger buns ($.59)
3/4 C. salsa ($.50)

Mix together all ingredient except cheddar. Divide meat into 6 equal sized portions, form into patties. Fry or grill over medium high heat for 3-5 minutes, or until browned on each side. Top with cheese and serve on a bun. Top with salsa.

Yields = 6 burgers
Cost: $4.83
Cost per burger: $.81

Appetizer Variation:
For a little twist on this recipe, divide the meat into 18 large meatballs. Flatten slightly and make according to directions. Serve on dinner rolls for some tasty sliders! Serve with salsa for dipping.
