MEXICAN BURGERS

1 lb lean ground beef
3/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
1/4 cup taco sauce
1 pkg (1 1/4-oz) taco seasoning mix
6 crisp taco shells
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
shredded lettuce for garnish, optional
Hot salsa for condiment, optional

Preheat broiler.

Combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, taco sauce, and the taco seasoning mix together and mix until well combined.  Shape the mixture into 6 oblong patties that will fit into a taco shell instead of a bun.

Place patties on broiler tray and broil 6-inches from the heat until cooked according to your taste.  Turn once during cooking.

To serve, place about a tablespoonful of the shredded cheese in the bottom of each taco shell.  Place the burger in the shell next.  Top burgers with the tomato, bell pepper, and remaining cheese.  Sprinkle with shredded lettuce and add some salsa, if desired.
