Chili Burgers Recipe.

Can’t decide whether you want chili or a burger tonight? Have both! The chili sauce here is a nice change from ketchup and mustard; it’s technically optional but it really makes these burgers stand out from the crowd. In fact, you might actually want to make extra sauce, so you can enjoy it over grilled chicken breast, fish, or anything else later (just freeze it if you’re not going to use it right away).
