HG's Chili-rific Cheeseburger

Chili Cheese, Please!
You want a guilt-free chili cheeseburger? You got it, baby!

Ingredients:
One 100-calorie flat sandwich bun
2 slices tomato
1 slice onion
1 frozen meatless hamburger-style patty with 100 calories or less
2 tbsp. low-fat veggie chili
1 slice fat-free American cheese
1 tsp. yellow mustard
Optional topping: hamburger dill pickle chips

Directions:
Split bun in half and lightly toast. Top the bottom half with tomato and onion.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook patty for 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Place patty over onion on the bun.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave chili for 45 seconds, or until hot.

Top patty with chili and cheese. Slap mustard onto the top half of the bun, and plop the bun top over the cheese. Enjoy!

Carl's Jr. Chili Cheese Burger
Carl's Jr. Chili Cheese Burger

Chubby Cheeseburger
While a cheeseburger smothered with chili is something crave-worthy, it's certainly not worth the insane nearly 800-calorie price tag that comes along with this one from Carl's Jr. FYI, if you accidentally order the Double Chili Cheese Burger (OOOPS!), prepare to swallow 1,050 calories and 61g fat. AHHHHHHH! If you were to splurge on The Chili Cheese Six Dollar Burger, you'd be lookin' at 1,110 calories and 70g fat! That's just plain RIDICULOUS (a little scary, too). And considering a tagline for this sloppy mess of a burger is "Drip Happens", wouldn't you rather enjoy one in the privacy of your own home? Especially when it's almost too easy to throw together our super-duper guilt-free swap -- HG's Chili-rific Cheeseburger! (And cheeseburger should be one word, not two. Just sayin...)
