  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, finely grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely grated
  • 2 tablespoons minced chipotle chiles in adobo
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Ground pepper


  1. Heat a grill to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onion, garlic, chiles, cilantro, and salt. Season with pepper and, using your hands, mix until well combined.

  2. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions. Between palms of hands, form each portion into a 4-by-1-inch oval patty. Insert an 8-inch skewer lengthwise into each patty. Grill, turning occasionally, until meat is browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes.

Cook's Notes

Soak wooden skewers in hot water for 15 minutes before grilling, or use metal ones. No grill? Broil on second highest rack using metal skewers. Cooking times are the same.
