Grilled Burgers with Roasted Green Chile Aioli

For the Labor Day holiday (here in the US) on Monday I grilled 
 burgers using roasted Hatch New Mexican Chiles in two ways; 
as a spread as well as adding a few strips tucked beneath the burger. 

A vendor at our local Farmer's Market sells a variety of
 fresh peppers and they also roast peppers on site in a large, 
expanded metal, rotating drum fired with a propane burner.
I love the fragrance of the chiles roasting ~ sensory pleasure!! 

This past weekend I was happy to find they had 
Hatch New Mexican Chiles, warm and freshly roasted. :)
(You could use any mild, roasted green chile 
if you cannot find Hatch Chiles.)
This sauce/spread is also good served with slices
 of roasted pork, grilled chicken, shrimp, as well
as a spread on BLT sandwiches, and in chicken or
egg salad.

Here's all you need to make the flavorful Green Chile Aioli:

A cup of mayo, the chiles, roasted garlic, and a little
fresh lime juice.

Simply mince the peeled and cleaned chiles, and stir into the 
remaining ingredients.  I opted to mix it up in the 
small food processor instead, giving it just a couple of pulses.

Besides the Chile Aioli and chile strips, I served the burgers on 
crispy La Brea Bakery Torta sandwich rolls, a slice of 
Monterey Jack cheese (added a few minutes before removing 
the burgers from the grill), ripe garden tomato slices and fresh greens.

Oh, and I highly recommend McCormick's Grill Mates Hamburger
Seasoning (no compensation from the company ~ I just love
this seasoning for burgers!)

These were voted right up there among the best burgers we 
ever have had. 
They were very good ~ I hope you'll give them a try!
