To celebrate National Burger Month, we’re sharing burger recipes from some of our favorite Texas friends! This recipe comes from the blog, A Southern Fairytale.
Burgers seasoned with chipotles in adobo, sharp cheddar cheese, roasted poblanos and topped with roasted poblanos, sharp cheddar and chipotle mayo. Perfect for any afternoon bbq.
Prep time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 burgers
2 lbs ground beef (I use 80/20)
2 Chipotles in Adobo plus 2 tablespoons adobo sauce
¾ shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 roasted poblano, chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1 Chipotle in adobo sauce
Sliced Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Sliced red onions
Lettuce or spinach leaves
3 roasted poblano peppers
How to make the burgers:
Finely chop the chipotles and 1 roasted poblano pepper. Grate ¾ cup sharp cheddar cheese. In a large mixing bowl, blend together the chopped chipotles and poblano with the ground beef. Add in the adobo sauce and grated cheddar.
Form into four ½ lb burger patties – press a dip into the center of each patty so that they will cook evenly and maintain their shape. Cover the patties and place them in the fridge until you’re ready to grill.
Put 1 cup mayo into your food processor, add in 1 chipotle in adobo sauce and pulse until smooth. Place in the fridge until ready to use.
Gettin’ the grillin’ on:
Sear the outside of the burgers over medium high on the grill, then move to indirect heat to continue the cooking process without drying out the burgers. During the last few minutes of cooking, place strips of roasted poblano peppers, and sharp cheddar cheese over the burgers.
Toast the buns over the hot grill, slather the buns with chipotle mayo, put your delicious poblano chipotle cheddar burgers on the bun and top with your favorite burger toppings. Enjoy.
