This spicy burger is served on an oblong roll, slathered with a spicy chipotle mayonnaise and topped with roasted Anaheim peppers and a delicious slaw.
1 pound 90% lean ground beef
3/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped, divided
1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder, preferably New Mexican
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, preferably Mexican
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon chipotle chile in adobo, (see Ingredient Note)
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
4 french rolls, preferably whole-wheat, split and toasted
2 roasted Anaheim or poblano peppers, (see Tip)
1 cup green cabbage, shredded
4 slices tomato
4 thin slices red onion
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Place beef, 1/4 cup cilantro, onion, scallions, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, pepper and salt in a large bowl. Gently combine, without overmixing, until evenly incorporated. Form into 4 equal patties, about 1/2 inch thick and oval-shaped to match the rolls.
Combine the remaining 1/2 cup cilantro, mayonnaise, lime juice and chipotle in a small bowl.
Peel the roasted peppers, halve lengthwise and remove the seeds.
Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 165°F, about 6 minutes per side. Top with cheese and cook until it is melted, about 1 minute more.
Assemble the burgers on toasted rolls with the chipotle mayonnaise, half a roasted pepper, cabbage, tomato and onion.
