3 cups frozen southern-style dice hash-brown potatoes (32oz bag)

1 cup Old El Paso Cheese ‘n Salsa dip


Heat gas or charcoal grill.  In medium bowl, mix ground beef, bread crumbs, taco seasoning mix and milk until will blended.  Shape mixture into 4 (4-inch) patties.  In another medium bowl, mix frozen potatoes and dip.

Cut 4 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil.  Place 1 patty on each; top with 1/4 of potato mixture.  Wrap each packet securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.

When grill is heated, place packets, seam side up, on grill over medium heat; cover grill.  Cook 15 to 25 minutes, rearranging packets several times, until patties are thoroughly cooked.  High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Cook over medium-low heat 17 to 22 minutes.
