Green Chile Cheddar Grass-Fed Beef Burgers

Green Chile Cheddar Grass-Fed Beef Burgers

  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons adobo sauce from a can of chipotles in adobo
  • 4 leaves lettuce
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 4 hamburger buns

Preheat a grill to medium heat. Combine beef, chiles, cheddar and salt in a large bowl and form into four (4-inch) patties. Brush with oil and grill, flipping once, until done to your taste, 8 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir adobo sauce into mayonnaise until blended and set aside. Serve burgers on buns with lettuce, tomato and chipotle mayonnaise.
