For an added Latin twist you can substitute crushed taco shells for the breadcrumbs. These burgers are also good when made with Lean and Medium Ground Beef instead of Extra-lean -- with grilled burgers a third of the the total fat drips out as the patties cook.

Mix all the ingredients together in bowl, except the tortillas and toppings. Season to taste.

Divide mixture and shape into 4 to 6 patties.

Cook on lightly oiled grill over medium heat (425°F/220°C) for 6 to 7 minutes per side, until digital instant read thermometer reads 160°F (71°C) when inserted sideways into each patty.

Heat the tortillas and tuck patties inside each along with some salsa and lettuce.
