Flay throws down green chile cheeseburger recipe

burgers.jpgA story in Wednesday's Food & Wine section featured how famous chefs are putting their spin on the classic hamburger.

Well another celebrity chef has ponied up a burger recipe in time for backyard barbecue season.

Bobby Flay's recipe for green chile cheeseburgers sounds delicious and (perhaps best of all) simple enough to whip up on a weeknight.

The recipe came to us courtesy of Hellmann's Mayonnaise, which has teamed up with Flay.

Follow the link below to get the recipe.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 8 minutes
Serves: 4
Recipe courtesy of Bobby Flay and Hellmann's Mayonnaise.
Note: Prep time does not include refrigeration time for seasoned mayonnaise.

1/2 cup Hellmann's or Best Foods Real Mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped green chilies, undrained
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons pickled jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 tablespoons canola oil
4 slices Monterey Jack cheese (about 4 ounces)
4 sesame seed hamburger buns


Process Hellmann's or Best Foods Real Mayonnaise, green chilies and garlic in food processor until smooth. Remove to medium bowl, then stir in jalapeno peppers and cilantro. Season, if desired, with salt and black pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, shape ground beef into 4 burgers. Brush each burger on both sides with oil, then season, if desired, with salt and black pepper. Grill, turning once, 8 minutes or until desired doneness. Top burgers with cheese and cook until cheese is melted. Arrange burgers on buns, then top with a dollop of green chili mayonnaise. Serve remainder of mayonnaise in small bowl for dipping.
