Tex-Mex Cheeseburgers

The hubby came up with this recipe the other day and we really enjoyed it. The big test of success in our house is whether or not the kiddos like dinner and they definitely did!

2 lb. ground beef (we'd suggest 80% lean)
1/3 cup salsa (either medium or hot)
1 package taco seasoning
1 can sliced black olives
2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, Mexican blend, your preference)
Soft Taco shells (2 for each burger)
salt and pepper to taste

Combine the beef, salsa, taco seasoning, salt, and pepper; form into 1/4"-1/2" thick by 4"-5" diameter burgers (the thinner and rounder the better). Grill, fry, etc. the burgers to your liking. Top one taco shell with cheese olives, a burger, and another taco shell. Bake or fry till cheese melts and shell crisps up just a bit.
