This summer, cook up a spicier, zestier twist on the burger -- it's sure to become a new favorite. Poblano adds gentle heat to the topping for these burgers; if you like, serve them with watermelon and cucumber, plus lime wedges dipped in a mix of ancho chile powder and salt.

Instructions Checklist
  • Over a low gas flame or under the broiler, roast chile until charred, about 6 minutes, turning frequently. Place in a bowl and cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Let chile steam 20 minutes, then rub with a paper towel to remove skin. Remove stem and seeds. Slice chile into 2-inch strips and return to bowl.

  • In a large skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high. Add onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook until onion is soft and translucent, about 10 minutes. Add onion to bowl with chile and stir to combine.

  • Form ground chicken into four 4-inch-wide patties and season with salt and pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add 2 teaspoons oil and swirl to coat. Working in batches, cook burgers 2 minutes. Flip, top each with cheese, and cook until cooked through, about 4 minutes more.

  • Meanwhile, heat broiler. Butter inside of buns and place on a baking sheet, buttered side up. Toast under broiler. Place burgers on buns and top with onion-and-chile mixture.
