Stuffed Chili Cheeseburgers

The title of this recipe is deceiving since there's actually no chili involved. I got it from the Sandra Lee Fast-Fix Family Favorites cookbook--it's modified a little (as usual) for my family's needs.

1 lb. turkey or lean ground beef
1/2 packet chili seasoning (not chili powder - chili seasoning can be found with taco seasoning)
Finely chopped onion - about a 1/4 cup
Colby Jack cheese slices

Mix onion, chili seasoning, and meat. Fashion into two large, thin patties. Fold Colby Jack cheese slice in half, and place in the center of patty. Fold patty over top of itself so it makes one large burger. You can grill these on the grill--we used the George Foreman grill because it's cold outside! Top with lettuce and serve on buns. We served with frozen seasoned fries. Very easy, quick and tasty - serves 2 - but you can make the recipe larger or smaller as necessary.
