1 1/2 pounds ground beef, very lean
1 tablespoon chili powder
salt, to taste
freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 corn tortillas
Crisco® Vegetable Oil, for frying
lettuce, chopped for garnish
2 cups salsa
plain lowfat yogurt, for garnish

In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat until very hot. One at a time, fry the tortillas for about 30 seconds on each side until they are golden and crispy. Drain the tortillas on paper towels.

Heat the broiler or light the charcoal grill. Let the coals get medium hot. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the beef, chili powder, salt and pepper. Shape the mixture into 4 patties, each about 3/4-inch thick.

Cook the hamburgers in the broiler or on a lightly oiled grill, about 5 inches from the source of heat, turning once, for 8 to 10 minutes until well done but still juicy.

Spread the tortillas on individual plates. On each tortilla, put a mound of chopped lettuce, one burger and salsa to taste. Top with a dollop of yogurt, fold the tortilla over and serve immediately.
