Low Calorie Recipe
Mexican Burgers with chopped onion and chili powder and your choice of either rice or bulgur and extra lean ground beef pull together these nutritious Mexican inspired burgers.
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 cup bulgur (or 1 cup cooked rice)
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 egg white
1 pound extra lean ground beef
Dry saute onion and chili powder for 1 minute over medium heat. Add bulgur. Cook 1 minute more. Add water. Remove from heat. (Substitute cooked rice instead of bulgur, if desired.) Mix with remaining ingredients and form into 8 patties. Grill or barbecue about 8 minutes per side. Top with low-fat yogurt or sour cream, salsa, shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes or cucumbers, chopped green or red pepper, and chopped green onion.
Serve with Low-Calorie Guacamole, Nachos, and Salsa Soup.
