Mexican Recipe Hambuger

Mexican Recipe Hambuger

  • Cover recipe: It's best to use plum tomatoes inside the burger as they're less watery than other varieties. If you prefer to use fat-free cheese, you'll save about 4 grams of fat per burger.
1 pound  ground round
1 cup  chopped seeded plum tomato
1/4 cup  minced fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon  chili powder
2 teaspoons  minced seeded jalapeƱo pepper
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/2 teaspoon  dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon  ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon  pepper
Cooking spray
4 (3/4-ounce) slices reduced-fat Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese
1/4  cup  fat-free sour cream
4 (1 1/2-ounce) hamburger buns
4 iceberg lettuce leaves
8 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
Grilled onions (optional)


  • Combine first 9 ingredients in a bowl; stir well. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping into 1/2-inch-thick patties.
  • Prepare grill. Place patties on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes on each side or until done. Place 1 cheese slice on top of each patty; cover and grill an additional minute or until cheese melts.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon of sour cream over top half of each bun, and set aside. Place patties on bottom halves of buns; top each with lettuce, tomato, onions (if desired), and top half of bun.
