4 servings (serving size: 1 burger)

The cool sour cream dressing in the slaw balances the spiciness of chiles in the burger. Toast the buns while the patties cook. Serve with baked sweet potato chips.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 6 ingredients. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook for 4 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer registers 160°.

Step 3

Combine coleslaw and next 6 ingredients (through pepper) in a large bowl; toss well. Place 1 patty on bottom half of each bun; top each serving with 1/2 cup coleslaw mixture and top half of bun.

I made these Burgers exactly as the recipe said and added a slice of low-fat pepperjack cheese to each one and they were a HUGE hit! So flavorful :-)

We thought these were great! Only modification was using freshly minced garlic (I don't do that bottled stuff). Served with a small side of sweet potatoes oven fries with chipotle-lime aioli for dipping.

Loved the coleslaw. Have made this several times to go with blackened fish, spicy chicken etc.

Family thought these burgers were awesome. The coleslaw paired perfectly with the burger.

This recipe is one of my favorites. It requires no modification for the burgers. I use slaw from the grocery store deli counter rather than making the slaw from scratch.

DH and I thought these were really good. Too much spice for DD. We dribbled a little A-1 sauce on the top of lightly grilled whole wheat buns. I served it with Confetti Pasta Salad, also from Cooking Light. It was like a cookout meal on a weeknight. :-) I will definitely make it again.

i modified it obviously and made turkey sliders instead of full burgers... but i also did not add in the breadcrumbs or the bbq sauce... i put in 3 peppers for a little more kick, and stuffed little slices smoked gouda cheese inside before grilling the burgers. for the slaw... i didn't have vinegar, so i used a 3-4 drops of lemon juice and lime juice, and added water to get it to the right consistency... i mean you can season it however you like... but these are to die for... even if you don't eat slaw... it just adds the extra touch to the burger. my brother will tell you... he doesn't even eat slaw, but he did on sunday!
