Clipped this from a coupon flyer and thought it sounded interesting. I've yet to try it, but when I do I may add thinly sliced sweet or red onion to the slaw, and a slice of cheese to the bottom bun. Chipotle Cheddar, Monterey Jack, or Colby all sound good.

  • 34 cup rice (white or brown)
  • 12 cup prepared ranch dressing
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 lb ground chuck

  2. In a large bowl, combine Ranch dressing, cabbage, and cilantro. Toss to combine; cover and refrigerate until serving.
  3. In a large bowl, combine rice, ground chuck, and taco seasoning mix. Form into four patties slightly larger than hamburger buns. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add burgers and cook 10-12 minutes for medium-well, turning once.
