For dinner last night I decided to try something a little different for us, and judging by all of the good comments from my hubby, it was a success!
Roasted Jalapeño Burger
1 large jalapeño, sliced in rings, deseeded
1 large ripe avocado, diced
salt & pepper
pepper jack cheese, sliced
burger meat of choice (ground beef for us)
1. Place sheet of aluminum foil on baking sheet. Arrange jalapeño slices on foil. Roast in oven at about 300 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until they start to look just slightly charred and softer. (You can also roast whole jalapeño and then slice later, whichever you prefer!)
2. After cooking burger to preference (we seasoned with a little salt and fresh ground pepper), warm buns in microwave (wrap in paper towel) for about 10 seconds. Place sliced pepper jack cheese on bun and top with burger to melt cheese.
3. Put a thin layer of mayo on top bun, and top off burger with chunks of avocado, cilantro and roasted jalapeño.
Enjoy! We ate it with a side of Salt & Pepper Kettle Chips. Yum-o!
