You want a guilt-free chili cheeseburger? You got it, baby!
Ingredients: 1 small hamburger bun (light, if available) 1 Boca Meatless Burger, Original 1 slice fat-free American cheese 2 tbsp. low-fat veggie chili (like one by Amy's or Health Valley) 4 pickle slices/chips 2 tomato slices 1 onion slice 1 tbsp. mustard
Directions: Split bun in half and toast lightly. Layer pickles, tomato, and onion on the bottom half of the bun. Cook Boca patty according to the instructions on the box (either in a pan with nonstick spray, or in the microwave). Place burger over the veggies on the bun's bottom half. Prepare chili according to package directions. Top the burger with the chili and then the cheese slice. Slap the mustard onto the top half of the bun. Plop the bun top over the cheese and chili patty. Now, the most important step of all... Enjoy! MAKES 1 SERVING
Attention Sodium-Counters! Save about 450mg by nixing the pickles and mustard.
Carl's Jr. Chili Cheese Burger
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...)
