This has nothing to do with chili the way you are thinking of chili, we are talking about chili sauce. I don't always have time to make a complicated or marinated burger. The chili sauce and the Italian sausage give these burgers a tremendous amount of flavor without a lot of fuss. Quick and Easy!
1 1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound Italian Sausage (Hot, mild or spicy, your choice.)
1/3 cup tomato-based chili sauce, I use homemade or Heinz)
Salt and Pepper or House Seasoning to taste
Preheat the grill for high heat. Mix all the ingredients and make into 8 patties. Place on grill and cook 5 minutes per side.
