  • 12
    cup chopped green onions or 1/2 cup finely chopped white onion
  • 2
    tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs
  • 2
    red serrano peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 3
    canned chipotle chiles in adobo, chopped
  • 12
    teaspoon salt
  • 4
    wheat hamburger buns, split (1-inch-thick) or 8 slices bread (1-inch-thick)
  • roasted red pepper catsup, roasted garlic catsup (optional) or other purchased flavored catsup (optional)
  • 4
    slices tomatoes (optional)
  • sliced red onion (optional)

  • Combine green onion or white onion, bread crumbs, serrano peppers, chipotle peppers, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add beef; mix well. Shape meat mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  • For a charcoal grill, place patties on the grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 14 to 18 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of a patty registers 160°F, turning once.
  • For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on the grill rack; cover and grill as above.
  • Grill or toast buns or bread. Serve burgers on grilled or toasted buns or bread topped, if desired, with flavored catsup, tomato slices, red onion slices, and serrano peppers.
