Fire Cracker Burgers
Serve this all-American burger with an All-American Zinfandel like Jed Steele's Shooting Star Zinfandel ($12.99 at Cool Springs Wine & Spirits).
1 lb ground beef
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies, drained
1 tsp beef bouillon granules
4 slices Monterey Jack cheese
1. Preheat grill for high heat.
2. In a medium bowl, mix the beef, diced green chilies, and bouillon. Shape into 4 patties.
3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill patties 5 minutes per side, or until well done. Top each patty with cheese about 2 minutes prior to removing from grill.
