Sizzling Summer Burger

Take pre-made burger patties over the top by seasoning with a flavorful spice rub and topping with lettuce, onion and a sriracha-cheese sauce.

Cook time:
Serving size: 4
Calories per serving: 15

Four 1-inch-thick pre-made burger patties (spring for the good stuff like Pat LaFrieda or go to your butcher)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon hot Hungarian paprika
8 ounces cheese sauce (like Velveeta)
1 to 2 tablespoons dry sriracha seasoning
butter lettuce for serving
4 buns toasted
1/2 red onion sliced paper thin
1/2 cup fried jalapenos crushed

Place the patties on a tray in one layer. Mix the salt, pepper, cumin, garlic and onion powders and paprika in a small bowl. Sprinkle on both sides of the patties and rest at room temperature for 2 hours.

Heat a grill to medium-high heat.

Add the patties to the grill and cook to desired doneness, flipping once.

Meanwhile, whisk together the cheese sauce and sriracha seasoning in a small saucepot. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until fully combined and hot.

Lay down some lettuce leaves on the bottom buns, then top with the patties, onion slices, fried jalapenos and finally the cheese sauce. Top with the top buns and serve.
