Wk 3 – The Chipotle Burger : The Cuban Burger

It’s Memorial Day today, and nothing says summer holiday more than an outdoor BBQ.  Andy fired up the grill, threw on some hot dogs and burgers, and pulled out this month’s issue of the Food Network Magazine.  This issue featured 50 different burger recipes.  The one that Andy picked to try was the Chipotle Burger and then we got creative and came up with the Cuban Burger.  These were easy, cheap, and creative ways to break away from the original Hamburger.

Tip:  When grilling the burgers don’t flatten them with a spatula to try to get them to cook faster, they will lose their juices and flavoring…instead put the grill on medium heat and show some patience.

The Chipotle Burger:

  • Grilled burger
  • 2 slices of Jack cheese
  • Chipotle mayonnaise (mix 1/4 cup mayo, 1 Tbl minced chipotles in adobo and a splash of lemon juice
  • Avocado slices
  • Served on a bun

The Cuban Burger:

  • Grilled burger in the shape of a rectangle
  • Swiss cheese
  • Cilantro & Scallion Mayonnaise (mix 1/3 cup mayo, 1 Tbl scallions, 1 Tbl cilantro in a food processor)
  • Tomato
  • Onion
  • Served on Toasted Cuban Bread
