The Sauce:

  • 6 ounces plain yogurt
  • 1/2 chipotle pepper seeded & minced
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from chipotle pepper can
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

The Slaw:

The Hamburgers:

  • 1 1/2 pound extra lean 93% ground beef
  • 1/4 cup minced cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon Cholula green pepper sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 whole wheat dinner rolls lightly toasted


The Sauce:

  • In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, lime juice and salt. Stir to combine completely.

The Slaw:

  • In a medium bowl, combine the green and red cabbage, and the cilantro.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, Cholula green pepper sauce and salt. Whisk in the olive oil.
  • Toss the cabbage mixture with the dressing.

The Hamburgers:

  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef, cilantro, Cholula green pepper sauce and salt. Mix well with a wooden spoon or your hands. Divide the meat mixture into 12 equal pieces (2 ounces each) and form each into patties that are ¾- to 1-inch high. (Can be made ahead. Place on a baking sheet, cover, and chill. Bring the room temperature before grilling.)
  • Place the meat patties on the grill and cook, lid closed, 3 minutes per side, or until barely cooked through. I like a little bit of pink inside to ensure optimal juiciness. Remove the patties from the grill.
  • Spread 2 teaspoons of the sauce on each toasted roll. Top each roll with 1 hamburger patty and ¼ cup slaw. Serve.
