Poblano Pepper Burger

Elizabeth Lancaster


I didn't know what to make for dinner the other night so I took a look in my fridge and pantry and put this yummy burger together for dinner and make some home made steak fries to go along with it. My Husband tells me that its a new hit in the house and to take this straight to JAP! :) so here you go :) I always get so nervous when making something new, I then have to figure out the measurements in my head to give to you all since I don't use recipes, I make my recipes up !!

How to Make Poblano Pepper Burger


  1. pre heat grill to 450* or add lard or butter to a med-large frying pan. (Medium heat)
  2. Peppers:

    Fry peppers in a medium pan with lid with oil or lard, until skins are blackened and peppers have doubled in size, remove from heat and let sit, Cool on paper towels. Once cooled, remove skins with the backside of a knife. Slice into strips(topping) and Diced to add to burger.
  3. Mix together, beef,onion (diced), grated cheese S&P,Adobe,egg garlic,Worcestershire, and One - two peppers (keep the seeds if you like heat, otherwise discard)

    Add to grill or frying pan.
  4. Divide the meat mixture into 4-6 equal portions (about 6 ounces each). Form each portion loosely into a 3/4-inch-thick burger and make a deep depression in the center with your thumb.
  5. cook to desired degree of doneness, I personally would NOT eat Ground beef other than Cooked thoroughly.
  6. Add slices of cheese and more poblano peppers. Set aside on a plate and grill buns (Optional)
  7. I think the taste and the texture of buns are best when lightly toasted. To toast a bun on a grill, grill pan, or griddle, split the bun open, place it cut side down on the grill, and grill until light golden brown, about 10 seconds. Alternatively, you can place the split bun halves cut side up on a baking sheet and cook them under a preheated broiler until light golden brown, about 30 seconds. Keep a close eye on them and don't let them get too brown or else that texture will take on a life of its own and defeat the purpose of starting with a soft bun.
  8. I added Kraft Miracle Whip to both top and bottoms of the buns and loaded my burger. (Tastes great with Ranch dressing) .

    I serve this with my herb crusted steak fries....

    I hope this dish finds its way to your dinner table Soon! Enjoy!
  9. P.S.
    Next time i make this, I'm going to try it with Cilantro and Lime as well.
