5
large tortilla chips, crushed (about 1/4 cup)
1/4
cup Old El Paso® taco sauce
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2
lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
6
slices (1 oz each) pepper Jack cheese
6
burger buns, split
Olive oil cooking spray
3/4
cup shredded lettuce
1
medium tomato, coarsely chopped
  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In medium bowl, mix crushed chips, taco sauce, salt, pepper and beef. Shape mixture into 6 patties, about 5 inches in diameter. Press thumb in center of each patty, creating a slight indentation, until bottom of patty is about 1/2 inch thick.
  2. Place patties on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 5 minutes. Turn patties; cook about 5 minutes longer or until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F. Top each patty with cheese slice; cook 1 minute or until cheese begins to melt.
  3. Meanwhile, spray cut sides of buns with cooking spray. Place buns, cut sides down, on grill; cook about 2 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. To serve, place cheese-topped patties on bottom halves of buns. Top with lettuce, tomato and top halves of buns.
