Fajita Burgers

My Rachael Ray marathon continues. This recipe was a hit! The recipe is from Rachael Ray's 30 minute Get Real Meals.

Beef Fajita Burgers:

1 1/3 pounds ground sirloin

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoons chili powder

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

2-3 tablespoons fresh picked thyme leaves, several sprigs

Several drops hot sauce

1 tablespoon grill seasoning (such as Montreal Steak Seasoning by McCormick)

Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling

Combine ingredients in bowl and mix well using hands. Divide into 4 patties and drizzle with oil before grilling or broiling. Cook to desired doneness. Serve withseared pepper and onions on a tortilla.

Seared Peppers and Onions:

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 red or green bell peppers, seeded and thinly sliced lengthwise

1 medium yellow skinned onion, thinly sliced lengthwise

1 jalapeno or serrano, seeded and chopped (I omitted)

2 cups tomatillo, green chili salsa or chipotle-tomato salsa, your choice (I used garlic-lime salsa as my husband is allergic to cilantro)

Heat skillet to medium heat and warm oil. Add peppers and onions and cook about 5 minutes. Add salsa and stir well. Cook an additional minute and serve with burgers.

Greta and Miles rating: They both loved this. They ate the meat really fast and wanted more!
