Double Salsa Burgers


1 large tomato, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped green sweet pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
2 finely chopped, seeded jalapeno peppers
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon snipped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
2 cups shredded lettuce
1/3 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup dairy sour cream and/or guacamole


For salsa, in a bowl combine tomato, green sweet pepper, onion, jalapeno peppers, garlic, cilantro, and salt. Set aside two tablespoons of the salsa. Cover and chill remaining salsa until serving time.

In another bowl combine ground beef and the two 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.
