Renee Behnkes Burgers Pacifica

Ingredients
2
Anaheim peppers
1/4
cup finely chopped onion
2
tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2
pounds lean ground beef
3
ounces dry Monterey Jack cheese, shaved, or Monterey Jack cheese, sliced.
4
sesame hamburger buns
1
avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and thinly sliced
 
Assorted condiments such as mustard, mayonnaise, catsup, tomatoes, lettuce, and/or pickles

Directions

  1. Place peppers on a grill rack directly over medium heat; grill, uncovered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until charred, turning frequently. Wrap peppers in foil or place in a clean paper bag; set aside until cool enough to handle (about 10 minutes). Peel peppers; remove and discard stems, seeds, and membranes. Finely chop peppers.
  2. Combine the peppers, onion, and soy sauce in a large mixing bowl; add beef and mix well. Shape mixture into 4 patties about 1 inch thick.
  3. Place burger patties on the lightly oiled rack of the grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 18 to 23 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in centers registers 160 degree F, turning burgers once halfway through grilling. Top with cheese slices the last 5 minutes of grilling.
  4. Toast buns, if desired. Place burgers on buns. Top with avocado and desired condiments. Makes 4 burgers.

From the Test Kitchen

Test Kitchen Tip:

Use ripe Haas avocados (with dark, pebbly skin). Avocados turn brown once cut, so use right after slicing.
