This is a recipe that I got from WW when I first started the program over 10 years ago when there were exchanges. The entire recipe, including the salad is approximately 5 points per serving

- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt

- 1 teaspoon lime zest, grated
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon grapeseed oil
- 4 cups romaine lettuce, shredded
- 15 cherry tomatoes, quartered

- If using broiler, spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a food processor, process the beef until finely chopped.
- Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in 2 T of the cilantro, the minced onion, chiles, chili powder, cumin, and salt.
- Mix lightly with 2 forks, just until ingredients are blended.

- One each of 4 plates, arrange one-fourth of the lettuce, tomatoes, and red onion wedges.
- Drizzle with the dressing, top with a burger and serve.
Delicious! We really enjoyed these juicy and flavorful burgers. I wouldn't change anything about them. Thanks!
Delicious! I made just as stated. These have such great flavor. Thanks for sharing! Made for Gimme 5 tag.
I had the butcher grind the meat. I also cooked over a charcoal grill, and it was delicious! I served with buns, to encourage the entire family to eat it instead of just me. I decreased the amount of minced onion by half, and felt the onion taste was still strong enough. I served these topped with lettuce, avocado, and my sugared jalapenos. Fabulous!
