How to Make Chile Salsa Burger

Step-by-Step

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

    Ingredients

    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
    Directions

    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.
  • 2Grill burgers to your liking. Grill onions and toast buns.
  • 3Place cilantro on bottom bun, top with patty, then cheese, salsa and onions. Enjoy!
