This summer I am going to run burgers every Saturday. It is summer after all! Today is not only perfect summer weather (I would know! I chicken fried my legs reading outside) but perfect BBQ weather. We live minutes from the beach so sometimes we battle the wind for bbqing. Not today. Mother Nature wants a burger! This one you are going to LOVE! In fact, The Fireman is not to happy I am sharing this one. He is rather protective of it. (It's OK honey, you can share!)
Chili Stuffed Burgers
Makes 6 burgers
1/2 cube cream cheese (left out to soften for at least an hour
1 can Ortega chilis
1 jumbo pack of hamburger (I buy the cheap 80/20
BBQ seasoning (I'm using Susie Q)
This is too easy. Take 1/2 cube of cream cheese and 1 can of Ortega chilis and mix well.
If you have made Poor Man Steaks before you know to start with two thin patties. I like to use two plates and make a patty on each.
Now dump a healthy spoonful of the cheese mixture on one patty
Cover with the other patty and crimp the edges. Be gentle. It's worth the work.
Repeat till you are out of meat
Chill for 30 minutes
BBQ till desired doneness. Be gentle with these babies
Out of all the burgers we made, only one leaked. The Fireman was threatening to eat off the BBQ. The cheese was too much for him.
Top with Chipotle Mayo
1/2 cup mayo
2 TB chipotle adobo sauce (it's the tomato sauce in the can the chilis are packed in.)
1/2 juice of one lime
To be honest, the night I made these, I made other stuffed burgers. I sent The fireman out with one and the instructions to ONLY eat half. We would switch plates since I had another variety (I'm a girl-I couldn't make my mind up) well he pokes his head in the screen door and proclaims he ate it all!!! I was too slow! It was too good. Don't worry! I made another.
