Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 2 1/2 cups presliced Vidalia or other sweet onion
  • 1 (7-ounce) can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 1/2 cup prechopped green bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 (8-ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 5 (1 1/2-ounce) hamburger buns, toasted

Preparation

1. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion to pan; cover and cook 8 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; set aside.

2. Remove 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can; set aside. Remove 1 chipotle chile from can; chop and set aside. Reserve remaining chiles and adobo sauce for another use.

Stir in chopped chipotle chile, adobo sauce, tomato paste, and next 3 ingredients (through tomato sauce); cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon 1/2 cup beef mixture over bottom half of each bun, and top evenly with onions and top half of bun.

Plate with pickle chips and a simple slaw. Combine 1/3 cup canola-based mayonnaise, 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add 3 cups packaged cabbage-and-carrot coleslaw, tossing well to combine.
