Green Chile Cheeseburger Topping
|On a Green Chile Cheeseburger fresh roasted chiles are
as uncommon and as welcome as really fine cheese. The topping can be as
simple as a whole roasted pod draped across the burger. Or a few plain roasted pods can be
chopped and spooned on top. This version is adapted from a recipe we found on the
Epicurious web site.2 cups chopped green chile, thawed and drained
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/3 cup water
In a heavy saucepan cook onion and garlic in oil
over moderately low heat, stirring, until soft.
Sprinkle flour over onion mixture and stir with a
wooden spoon until combined well.
Trickle in water, stirring constantly, and stir in
chiles. Bring mixture to a simmer, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to moderately low and
cook mixture, stirring, until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add salt to taste.
