Smokin

This is a burger my whole family loves. They love the smoky taste of the peppers mixed with the sweet taste of the plum salsa.

Ingredients 

Plum salsa-1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro+ 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper+ 4 fresh plums, peeled and chopped+ 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions+ 2 tbsp. lime juice+ 1 1/2 avocado diced+ 1-2 fresh jalepeno finely chopped + Burger Ingredients- 1 3/4 pound ground round beef+ 2 tsp. Webers Grill Creations Gourmet Burger Seasoning+ 3 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce+ 6 oz. Crumbled Blue Cheese+ 8 tsp. Chipotle pepper adobo sauce+ 12 slices thick cut peppered bacon+ 6 chipotle peppers, cut in half lengthwise+ 6 grilled roasted garlic ciabatta rolls+ 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Instructions 

Prepare the Plum Salsa first so that the flavors can be melding together. Mix all the salsa ingredients together in a medium size bowl, cover and chill until burgers are ready.
For the burgers:
Mix the first 5 ingredients together and form into 6 patties.
Start cooking bacon in a cast iron skillet on a burner or on heavy duty foil on the grill. As bacon is cooking place the burger patties on the grill. Grill should be at med-high heat (around 350 degrees). Cook burgers for 8-9 minutes per side or until burgers reach desired doneness.
For buns: Brush each half of the bun with olive oil and toast on the grill.
When buns are toasted place burger on bun, place 2 slices of bacon on burger, top this with half of a chipotle pepper, and spoon salsa on top, top off with top of bun. Enjoy! They

Comments 

The smokiness of the peppers in this recipe goes great with the blue cheese. The sweetness of the salsa helps to take a little of the burn out of your mouth from the peppers. Serve with a nice bottle of Sutter Home Zinfandel for an awesome burger experience.
