Ingredients

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 Chile 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

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. 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.
