Nacho burgers

I have always loved burgers. While they are traditionally thought of as a summer food (backyard barbecue!), they are still perfect in the winter. I am whipping up a batch of these for my annual Super Bowl party, and I just know my guests will love them. Spicy, cheesy and full of flavor!
