Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauce:
  2. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and season with salt and pepper to taste. (A water if necessary to achieve the proper consistency.).
  3. Burgers:
  4. Heat grill to high. Form meat into 6 burgers and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill until charred on both sides and cooked to desired doneness.
  5. Place 2 slices of the cheese on each burger; close the lid or tent with foil and cook until the cheese has just melted, about 1 minute.
  6. Place burgers on bun and top with green chili sauce, lettuce, tomatoes and pickled jalapeno, if desired.
  7. Note: Use high heat. A great tasting burger needs only to be on the grill 2 to 3 minutes on each side to arrive at a perfect medium doneness.
