Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. (I like to line mine with foil, for easy clean up!) Place ground meat into a medium size bowl with dry dip mix and salsa. Mix until well combined.
Make 8 thin patties with the meat, (don’t worry, meat should be very wet, which makes for moist and flavorful burgers!)
Place 4 of the patties on the prepared baking sheet, and put 2 of the cheese stick pieces in the middle of each burger. Place the other patty on top of the bottom patty, and lightly press sides together, to seal cheese in.
Bake in pre-heated oven for 30 minutes. Flip burgers, and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
