Dorito and Monterey Jack Cheese Stuffed Burgers

Okay.  Let's do these messy, cheesy, slightly obscene Dorito and Monterey Jack Cheese Stuffed Burgers.

So you don't REALLY need the giant bag of chips.  But you may want to snack on them after supper.  Or before.  Or during - whatever your heart desires.

Drop the chips you're not shoving in your mouth into a food processor (mini or the big one if you want).

Crush up the chips into fine crumbs - you'll need 3/4 cup - and put the crumbs into a large bowl.

Add the beef,

the egg,

salt and pepper,

Mix everything together until combined (don't overwork the meat!), then split the beef evenly into 5 portions.  Split those 5 portions in half.

Divide the shredded cheese between half of the patties, place another half on top of the cheese, and pinch to seal the cheese into the beef.

In the picture below, two of the patties on the right are stuffed.

Continue until all 5 burgers are pinched and sealed.

Cook until done.  Don't worry if the beef pulls back and the cheese inside spills out.  They'll still be delicious!

Top with more cheese, more Doritos, and mayo.

I'm not going to lie.  These are NOT the healthiest burgers on the planet, in case you were unsure.  But they ARE good for your tastebuds and your soul.  So everything evens out.

My god these were obscene.  And delicious.  And obscene.  And should totally go on your meal plan ASAP.

Did I tell you that I love putting Doritos and Tortilla chips on burgers?  I love how crunchy they make the burger!

If you're a Nacho Cheese Dorito fan, then these burgers are totally going to rock your world.

I bet you could talk your kids into eating anything if they knew it was chockfull of chips.  And that you would promise to top it with chips.

Chips are life.
