Southwestern Grilled Burgers

I love for Mr. Dumpling to grill! That's not to say Mr. Dumpling loves grilling...but he will. I find the recipes and he cranks up the grill!

Our latest endeavor is a recipe from Taste of Home. I do love a good Taste of Home recipe. This is a scrumdiliumptious hamburger!

Southwestern Grilled Hamburgers

1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilis
4 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 lbs lean ground beef
3/4 (I used l lb) bulk pork sausage
8 slices Monterey Jack cheese
8 hamburger buns
1 to 2 ripe avocados, sliced

1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Add beef and sausage, mix well. Shape into 8 patties. (This makes 8 nice size patties).

2. Grill, covered, over medium heat for at least 5 min on each side. Top each patty with cheese and grill a few more minutes until cheese melts.

3. This is a MESSY hamburger with the avocado. I ate mine two ways...with a fork and then again with the avocado on the side. I think I preferred on the side...but you must have the avocado!!

I forgot to take a pic. (blush) but I found one that looked like it on Flickr on Creative Commons. Have you heard of Creative Commons. (Be sure to take a look after you finish here!)

Wow, great pics there. Just look to the side for their copyright preference. Most are free (I love FREE)  to use uncropped and credited. Bookmarking this for future use. Once you sign in to Flickr, you can add the pic straight to your blogger post.
