Updated April 19, 2017

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 lb ground beef
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen shoestring fries
  • 1 cup no-bean chili
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1/4 cup diced green onions

Steps

  • 1
    Cut four 18x12-inch sheets of nonstick aluminum foil.
  • 2
    Mix beef with salt and pepper. Shape into four patties, about 1/2-inch thick. Place 1 patty in the center of each foil sheet.
  • 3
    Top each with 1/4 cup chili, fries and 2 tablespoons of cheese.
  • 4
    Bring up 2 sides of the foil so the edges meet. Fold together tightly at the top, creating a loose tent above the burger.
  • 5
    Fold other sides to seal. Place packets on a cookie sheet.
  • 6
    To BAKE: Heat oven to 450°F. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the center of patties reads 160°F.
  • 7
    To GRILL: Place packets on a grill over medium heat. Cook 8 minutes, rotate packets then cook 7 to 9 minutes longer, or until patties are no longer pink in the center.
  • 8
    Place packets on plates. To serve, cut a large “X” across top of each packet; carefully fold back foil. Top each patty with 2 tablespoons of cheese. Garnish with green onions.
