I love to grill these sandwiches for quick summer meals or impromptu get-togethers around the pool. They're a snap to prepare, and no one ever guesses that they're low fat. —Joan Hallford of North Richland Hills, Texas

Nutritional Facts

1 sandwich equals 304 calories, 12 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 52 mg cholesterol, 694 mg sodium, 22 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 25 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 1-1/2 starch, 1 vegetable, 1/2 fat.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the beans, 2 tablespoons green chilies, onion and salt. Crumble the beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight 5-in. patties. Top each patty with 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese; fold in half and press edges to seal, forming a half moon.
  2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill burgers, uncovered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 7-9 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Serve on tortillas with lettuce, tomato, salsa and remaining chilies. Yield: 8 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2010

I liked this recipe. I would add cumin to the meat next time for flavor but you could really taste the beans and the bbq flavor in the meat. I did take out the onions and glad i did. It might have caused the meat to brake up to much
