1 tablespoonminced canned chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
1 teaspoonfresh lime juice
salt to taste
4 Aidells Habanero and Green Chile Sausage links, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1/2 poundground beef (15% fat) or turkey (not lean)
4 green onions, chopped
2 teaspoonsground black pepper
6 large hamburger buns
6 canned mild green chilies
6 ouncesMonterey Jack cheese, grated
In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, lime zest, chipotle chilies and lime juice.Season to taste with salt.
Finely chop the sausage in a food processor. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the ground meat, onions, salt, and pepper. Stir just until blended. Form into six patties.
Prepare barbecue or grill for medium-high heat. Grill hamburgers to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare (if you are using ground turkey, grill until fully cooked, about 8-10 minutes per side). In the last minute of cooking time, top each burger with cheese. Grill the buns until golden.
Spread one side of each bun with the mayonnaise. Place a burger on each bottom half and top with a green chile. Cover with top halves of buns and serve.
