GUADALAJARA BEEF BURGERS WITH TEQUILA-SPICED SALSA
When we were in Mexico, we had a burger similar to this one. I made a few additions and changes. The salsa that topped the burger was a welcome change from the usual tomato and onion slices.
1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
1/2 cup crushed baked tortilla chips
1/2 cup chopped green onions with tops
2 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Red leaf lettuce
6 seeded sandwich rolls, split
2 cups chopped seeded tomato
1 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/3 cup chopped peeled avocado
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons tequila
TEQUILA SALSA Combine all ingredients in a bowl, tossing gently. Set aside. Makes 3 cups. BURGERS: Prepare grill and coat with no-stick grilling spray. In large bowl, combine all the burger ingredients except for the rolls and lettuce. Form into 6 patties and place on grill. Grill 5 minutes on each side our until done. During last minute of grilling, place rolls, cut sides down, on edges of grill to toast. Place burgers on bottom halves of rolls and top with a lettuce leaf and some Tequila Salsa.
This is our favorite summer-time burger. It always gets rave reviews from our guests.
