Favorite Chili Cheeseburgers

I like to experiment when making hamburgers and stuffing them with sharp Cheddar cheese makes them absolutely delicious. For lighter fare, I sometimes use a combination of lean ground beef and ground turkey. —Deb Williams, Peoria, Arizona

    These burgers taste great and are easy to make. I used cheddar cheese on top instead of the nacho sauce. I will be making them again.

    This burger is so simple and easy to make. It has great flavor and can easily be changed up to make your family happy. You change the sauce, seasonings, and cheese to make whole new burgers each time you make it. Love these kinds of recipes.
