Slip ’n’ Slide Queso Burgers

Whether you cook the burgers for this green chili-accented burger recipe in the oven or on the grill, we can guarantee you three things: the final meal is delicious, easy (with just 5 ingredients!), and fantastically keto! Fresh from The DIRTY, LAZY, KETO 5-Ingredient Cookbook, it comes with a promise from author Stephanie Laska: “Romaine boats are surprisingly sturdy. Even when filled to the brim with cheesy queso, they still won’t leak or fall apart! Perhaps due to novelty (or crunch), my kids actually prefer romaine leaves over hamburger buns. I make it a point to use them for all sorts of meals—sandwiches, tacos, wraps. No matter what your age, you’ll have fun filling and eating this appetizing cheeseburger boat.”

  1. Why use lean beef? Lack of taste and lack of filling nutrients.

    • Good point! This recipe hails from a cookbook we like, thus we didn’t create it. We’re just sharing it with you. That said, by all means use higher-fat ground beef if desired. Just be sure to recalculate your macros accordingly!
