Cheddar Chili Burgers

Big, bold chili and french-fried onions are a fun alternative to the classic burger fixings of ketchup and mustard. The patties are easy to assemble, making this a great weeknight sandwich. —Sue Ross, Casa Grande, Arizona

    We enjoyed these burgers as they are nice and versatile. My son added bbq sauce to his and my husband topped his with jalapenos.

    I thought it was different putting in the chili powder in the ground beef. It really was a great taste. The onion rings on the burger also gave it an interesting taste. We liked it. We didn't serve it with the chili but it would be good. We served with pickles, onions, ketchup and mustard.
