Tasty Thursday

These mouthwatering burgers from North Bay Farmers Markets Cookbook by Brigitte Moran with Amelia Spilger really hit the spot!

Spicy Cheddar Burgers with Chile Mayonnaise
1 1/4 pounds lean ground grass-fed beef
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons chile powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Chile Mayonnaise
1 lime, juiced
1 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
3/4 teaspoon salt

4 Kaiser rolls
Tomato, lettuce, and avocado slices

Heat a large cast-iron or heavy-bottomed skillet to medium-high for 5 minutes. Combine the beef, cheese, cilantro, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; shape mixture into four patties.

Place in a skillet and cook 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or to desired doneness. Serve burgers on rolls with the Chile Mayonnaise, tomato, lettuce, and avocado.

To make the mayonnaise, purée together all of the ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

Makes 4 servings

NOTE: You can also grill these burgers on an outdoor barbecue.
