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

  • 1 can (15 ounces) chili with beans
  • 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
