Southwest Burger Recipe with Jack CheeseShare This Recipe:
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.
