  • 2 pounds ground chuck, 80 percent to 85 percent lean
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 thin slices Chihuahua or provolone
  • 4 good-quality hamburger buns, toasted
  • Green Chili Sauce, recipe follows
  • Romaine lettuce leaves, optional
  • 4 thick slices beefsteak tomatoes, optional
  • Pickled jalapenos, optional
  • Green Chile Sauce:
  • 2 poblano chiles, grilled, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 medium white onion, grilled and chopped
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh epazote, or fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Directions

Heat grill to high. Form meat into 4 (8-ounce) burgers and season each burger on both sides with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and a 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Grill until charred on both sides and cooked to desired doneness.

Place 2 slices of the cheese on each burger, close the lid or tent with foil, and cook until the cheese has just melted, about 1 minute. Place burgers on buns and top with a few tablespoons of Green Chile Sauce and lettuce, tomato, and pickled jalapeno, if desired.

Green Chile Sauce:

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
