When I was making my Cinco de Mayo meals I was dreaming about this burger at night. The rajas, pico de gallo, guacamole were dancing through my head. This burger has been haunting me for a few weeks now and when it finally stopped raining, my dreams came true. It was even better than I dreamed...
Hubs does this magical thing when he cooks burgers or steaks. He uses Chipotle Tabasco Sauce like BBQ sauce and brushes it on the meat as it cooks. It adds a little spice and flavor but the best part is the crust it puts on the burger. He is a genius. That magical burger with melted pepper jack cheese, guac spread, rajas and pico de gallo make this my perfect burger. Actually the only thing that could make it better is bacon...
The Burger of My Dreams- recipe by me makes 4 burgers
1 pound ground beef (or buffalo, we use buffalo a lot)
8 slices bacon, cooked (optional)
Chipotle Tabasco Sauce
salt and pepper
4 slices pepper jack cheese
2 poblano peppers made into rajas recipe here
1/2 recipe pico de gallo recipe here
guac spread recipe here
Form burgers into patties and coat with salt and pepper Chipotle Tabasco sauce before putting them on the grill. Cook burgers to your desired doneness basting with Chipotle Tabasco sauce 2 more times (only do this once for less spicy burgers.) Coat buns with butter and sprinkle with a little garlic powder and salt. Grill Buns. Melt cheese on burgers. Now you are ready to assemble. Spread guac spread on one or both buns. Top burger with bacon (optional), rajas and some pico de gallo. Enjoy! Serve with black pepper lime fries.
