Fajita Burgers

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.
