How to Make Chile Salsa Burger


  1. If possible grind your own meat. I prefer to make burgers with chuck. Here is the rub:
    Lynn’s Wet Rub from the South


    1-2 dried pasilla peppers
    1-2 dried mild New Mexico or guajillos peppers
    2 clove garlic
    1 tsp apple cider vinegar
    1 tsp liquid smoke
    1/2 tsp soy sauce, low sodium
    1 tsp Worcestershire sauce, low sodium
    **handful of fresh cilantro
    **olive oil

    Amount of meat it rubs is approximate.
    Remove stem and seeds from dried peppers and place in a food processor. Add peeled garlic and puree.
    Transfer to a small bowl and add vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, and a little olive oil at a time. If it seems too dry add a little more olive oil until it's a consistency to your liking. Now add chopped cilantro.
    For burgers just rub patties on both sides and grill.
  2. Grill burgers to your liking. Grill onions and toast buns.
  3. Place cilantro on bottom bun, top with patty, then cheese, salsa and onions. Enjoy!
