1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

1/4 c. onion, chopped

2 Tbsp. red bell pepper, finely chopped

3 Tbsp. picante sauce or salsa

2 tsp. prepared Dijon-style mustard

1 Tbsp. prepared horseradish (optional)

Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds before handling the meat. In a bowl, mix the ground beef with onion, red pepper, picante sauce or salsa, mustard, horseradish (if desired), salt and pepper. Form into four burgers, each about 3/4 inch thick. Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds after handling the meat. Using utensils, place burgers on a grill that has reached medium-high heat. Check each burger with a food thermometer after approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Turn burgers as needed. A hamburger is done when it reaches 160 degrees. Clean the thermometer between uses with hot, soapy water. Place burgers on buns and top with condiments and garnishes of choice. After measuring the final temperature, remember to clean the food thermometer with hot, soapy water.
