Ptomaine Tommy's in Los Angeles inspired this chili-smothered burger recipe. For this quick dinner, use any type of chili you prefer, with or without beans, and serve it with a tossed green salad and a cold beer.

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% or leaner)

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced sweet onion
  • 4 slider-size hamburger buns or rolls, split and toasted

  • Ready In

  1. Gently knead beef, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl to combine. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and form them into 4-inch patties.
  2. Heat a large cast-iron or regular skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook the burgers, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center reaches 165°F, about 10 minutes total. (Resist pressing them with your spatula so you don't squeeze out all the juice and end up with dry burgers.)
  3. Serve on a bun topped with about ½ cup chili and onion.
