Directions

  1. For glaze, combine the salad dressing, lime juice and chipotle pepper in a blender; cover and process until blended. Set aside.

  3. Bake at 375° for 9-11 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear, basting occasionally with glaze.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute peppers and onion in oil until crisp-tender. Remove from the heat; stir in cilantro and salt.
  5. Top burgers with pepper mixture and cheese. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve on buns. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
