TV Dinner: Chuletas, Mexican burgers

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - If you order this dish as street food in Mexico, it will come dredged in flour, covered with cracker crumbs, and deep-fried in lard.

Chef Chris Manning makes us a healthier version that's great for Cinco de Mayo, the fifth of May, which is coming up Sunday.

It's called Chuletas, which are Mexican hamburgers. He serves it on a grilled tortilla, but you can always use a standard hamburger bun instead.

Watch the video for his tips and tricks.

Chuletas - Mexican Burgers

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 small onion, minced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons minced jalapeño pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup salsa (any brand)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and divide into eight four-ounce patties. Grill to desired temperature.

Serve over shredded lettuce and top with diced tomatoes, diced onion, sour cream, and crumbled queso fresco.
