Week 29: Mexican Beef Patties

The Recipe
A pinch of salt teaspoon salt
1/2 pound ground beef
30gr canned diced green chilies
3/4 tablespoon taco seasoning
2 tablespoons shredded cheese

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, green chilies, taco seasoning mix and salt; blend well. Divide mixture into 1/2-inch patties. Coat a skillet with cooking spray over medium heat; add beef patties and cook for 6 minutes per side. Top each patty evenly with cheese and cook for 2 minutes or until burgers are done and cheese has melted.

The Verdict
Since DH was eating this as well, I only used half the amount of chili, as 30grams sounded rather overwhelming - even when talking about canned chilies. Also, I'd forgotten to buy taco seasoning, so I used half-and-half of paprika and basil instead. But even with those alterations it ended up tasting really good, and a nice alternative to the boring plain beef patties.
