|Prep Time: 20 mins||Cooking Time: 2 hours||Servings Per Recipe: 4|
- 1 1/2 pounds hamburger
- 1/3 cup grated onion
- 2-4 chipotle peppers (from a can of chipotles in adobo), counting on what proportion chile heat you wish, minced, plus 1 tablespoon of the adobo sauce

1 Roast the (optional) poblano chiles: If including poblano chiles in your burger, you’ll got to roast them first. Coat the poblanos with a touch oil and grill or broil them until they’re blackened on all sides. Alternatively, you’ll take the plain, un-oiled peppers and place them directly on a gas stovetop burner, turning them as required , until they’re blackened on all sides.
Place the blackened peppers during a covered bowl for quarter-hour approximately to steam. Peel off the charred skin and take away all the seeds. slice through thick ribbons and toss with a touch oil and salt and put aside.
2 Make the chipotle burger mix: Mix the bottom beef, grated onion, minced chipotles, the adobo sauce, salt, cumin, and black pepper together during a large bowl. Mix gently, just until the ingredients are combined. don’t over-mix or the burgers are going to be tough.
3 Form the burger patties: Form 4-6 patties from the burger mix, about 1/4 pound to 1/3 pound each. Press a shallow indent within the middle of the patties to stay the burgers from bragging while grilling (read about why this works here).
4 Prepare the grill: Prepare a gas or charcoal grill for medium-high heat grilling, or until you’ll hold your hand about an in. over the grates for 1 second.
5 Grill the burgers: Lay the burgers on the grill and cook with the lid down for 6-7 minutes. Raise the lid, flip the burgers, and continue grilling with the lid down for an additional 6-7 minutes, counting on how hot your grill is and the way well-done you favor your burgers. Cook until the interior temperature is 140°F for medium-rare or 160°F for well done.
6 Add the cheese and grill the buns: When the burgers are almost ready, place a slice of jack cheese on each patty and shut the grill lid. The cheese should melt during a little over a moment.
If you would like toasted burger buns together with your burgers, toast them after you’ve flipped the burgers. Watch that the buns don’t burn; once they are lightly toasted move them to a tray near the grill.
7 Serve: When the burgers are ready, place them on the buns. Top with slices of avocado, then a number of the roasted poblanos (if using), touch cilantro, and sauce
