Cooking & Entertaining
A couple of
canned products from the Mexican section of your supermarket make
these Southwestern-style burgers a cinch to make.
1-1 1/2 lbs (450-675 g) ground beef, preferably chuck
1 canned chipotle chile in adobo, chopped, or to taste
1/2 cup (125 ml) shredded Monterey Jack or other mild cheese
1/4 cup (60 ml) canned roasted green chili peppers
1/4 cup (60 ml) finely chopped onion
1/4 cup (60 ml) chopped cilantro (coriander leaves) (optional)
1 tsp (5 ml) chili powder
1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground cumin
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly
with your hands. Form gently into 4 to 6 patties and grill over
hot coals, pan-fry, or broil until cooked through, turning once
halfway through cooking.
Serves 4 to 6.
