Ingredients

Sauce:

Burger:

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 12 thin slices Monterrey Jack (or white cheddar) cheese
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1 small red onion thinly sliced
  • 6 rolls split and toasted

Instructions

  1. Add PAMA, ketchup, brown sugar, lime juice, salt, chipotle, dried mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper to blender and process until smooth. Pour into a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer about 20 minutes or until reduced by about 1/3. Cool completely.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add beef, fresh cilantro and 1/3 cup of cooled PAMA sauce. With hands, gently combine then form into 6 patties.
  3. Grill burgers about 3-5 minutes per side over medium heat (or cook in pan on stovetop) or until desired doneness. During the last minute of cooking top each burger patty with 2 slices of cheese to melt.
  4. Assemble burgers by spreading some of the remaining sauce on the cut sides of the toasted rolls. Top bottom parts of rolls each with a burger patty, spinach, red onion, and top part of roll.

Recipe Notes

SNAPPY TIPS: If you like spicy food, consider adding more chipotles to the sauce.

SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of Monterrey Jack cheese you can use white cheddar or your favorite cheese. Instead of spinach you could substitute lettuce.
