Roasted Chile Hamburger with Chipotle Aoili
I never post twice in one day, but I wanted to get this posted before the weekend. This hamburger is perfect for your holiday weekend. The inspiration came from a local place called Ruth's Diner. My sister ordered the Roasted Chile Hamburger. I sat there and watched as see ate and moaned and groaned about how it was the best burger she has ever had.
Later that night I decided to recreate it. My mom had bought some Udi's Gluten Free Hamburger Buns, so we were set! This really is the best burger I have ever had!
