Clever leftovers: Burger Edition

It's easy to go overboard when grilling. It's like spaghetti; you always end up making enough to end world hunger.

At least, that was the case at our house this weekend. Even after taking burgers to work for lunch the next day, there were STILL burgers in the fridge.

Burger, you were delicious, but I'm tired of eating you.

So today, I made leftover burgers into chili. For CHILI FRITO PIE. Because I had a random craving.

Burgers turned Chili:

-4 Leftover burgers, chopped or crumbled. Cheeseburgers work verrryy well, too.
-1 can of beans
-1 can of tomato sauce
-chili seasonings:
     (This kit is GF, or make your own...)
2 T. chili powder
1 1/2 t. dried oregano
1 t. ground cumin
1/2 t. ground coriander
1/4 t. ground cloves
1/4 t. garlic powder
1 1/2 t. salt

Mix it all up in a pot until it's hot, and serve over Fritos. Yeah!
