“It requires a certain kind of mind to see beauty in a hamburger bun.”

-Ray Croc, McDonald's founder

Ingredients

Chipotle Burger

1½lbs ground beef
1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped
2 tsp adobo sauce
1 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Creamy Coleslaw

4 cups shredded coleslaw mix
½ cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp chopped fresh Italian flat leaf parsley
2 tsp fresh lime juice
½ tsp adobo sauce
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp chili powder
¼ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Spicy Special Sauce

¼ cup sour cream
¼ cup salsa
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp sugar
¼ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp chili powder

4 hamburger buns
2 tomatoes, sliced
1 avocado, sliced

Directions

1) For the hamburger, preheat grill to medium-high heat. Place ground beef, chopped chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, salt, cumin and pepper in a large bowl. Mix all ingredients together using your hands, taking care not to handle the meat too much. Form the meat into 4-6oz. patties. Lightly oil the grilling surface and place patties on the preheated grill. Cook for about 6-8 minutes per side, depending on desired doneness. Remove from grill.

2) For the coleslaw, while the burgers are cooking, in a large bowl, combine coleslaw, mayonnaise, parsley, lime juice, adobo sauce, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Toss to combine well. Set aside until ready to assemble burgers.

3) For the burger sauce, in a medium bowl, whisk together sour cream, salsa, mayonnaise, lime juice, sugar, cumin and chili powder until well combined.

4) To assemble the burgers, spread the burger sauce onto the insides of the top and bottom of the buns. Place a layer of coleslaw on the bottom bun followed by the cooked burger, a large slice of avocado, a tomato slice, another layer of coleslaw and the top bun. Serve immediately.
