Portobello Burger
Swap the beef for this hearty marinated and grilled portobello burger.

Grilling season officially kicks off this weekend — celebrate by firing up the grill for some burgers!  Traditional beef burgers are delicious, but we’ve got 5 creative (and healthy) spins on this summer classic that you’ll love.

Beef Sliders
Classic beef burgers are an all-time fave, but can rack up the calories. Use our tips to lighten them up or for a change of pace, grill up some mini-burgers.

Turkey Burgers
Turkey is a wonderful red meat alternative, but can be bland if you don’t flavor them right. Dig into Ellie’s savory turkey burgers made with olives, cumin and parsley.

Bison Burger
Red meat alternatives are all the rage. Buffalo (bison), venison and ostrich are very lean meats and delicious choices.

Portobello Burger
Looking for a vegetarian option? Portobello mushrooms make a perfect meatless burger. They’re juicy, flavorful and hold up well on the grill.

Split Pea Burgers
Legumes like beans, peas and lentils are another meat-free alternative that are packed with protein, vitamins and minerals. Alton’s split pea burgers are so mouthwatering they’ll have hard core meat lovers begging for more!

    I am a huge fan of burgers but I also love a good chili! It can be made with ground beef, turkey, or whatever you like and of course without any meat at all but it is amazing either way. My favorite way is Cuban Chili http://saborlatinorecipes.com/recipes/cuban-chili
