Playing Two-Cheese Queso Burgers with Spiral of Two Sauces

“The spiral effect of sauces is easiest with condiment squirt bottles easily found at dollar stores or kitchen supply stores or on line from Amazon.com. Cut the tip a bit wide at top for easy swirls.”

Yield

Serves: 4

Preparation

Purée ingredients for the Avo-Cream Sauce in a food processor then transfer to a squeeze bottle. Rinse the processor bowl and return it to the base.
Place the chipotles, adobo sauce and ketchup in the processor and purée. Transfer to a squeeze bottle.
 

Combine beef with garlic, grated onion, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander and chili powder. Form 4 patties that are thinner at the center and thicker at the edges for even cooking.
 
Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high to high heat. Drizzle pan with oil and add patties. Cook 5 minutes, flip then top each patty with 2 slices of cheddar or Colby-Jack (layer the slices so they overlap on an angle). Top cheese with a few pickled jalapeños and a couple tablespoons of pico or salsa. Top salsa with American cheese and loosely cover pan with a foil tent to melt cheeses.
 
Place 2 leaves of lettuce on each bun bottom then top with a Queso Burger. Swirl the Avo-Cream sauce and Chipotle Ketchup on top of the burgers and serve with bun top alongside.
