Make it cowboy style: these burgers go beyond the ordinary with Tex-Mex flavors that bring an extra kick. The beef patties are seasoned with warm Southwestern spices and stuffed with a handful of Monterey Jack cheese that oozes when you take a bite. For toppings, you’ve got a tomato salsa and spicy crema that add plenty of swagger. With some toasty roasted potato wedges on the side for good measure, this is guaranteed to be a grand ol’ time at the burger rodeo.

In a medium bowl, combine beef, remaining Southwest Spice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Divide mixture in half, then flatten each piece into a wide, roughly ½-inch-thick circle. Divide cheese between the centers of each. Fold edges of meat around cheese, shaping and sealing to create two cheese-stuffed patties. Season all over with salt and pepper.
