  • Light a grill and oil the grate. Form the meat into four 5-inch patties and season with the chile salt. Grill over moderately high heat until lightly charred on the bottom, 3 minutes. Flip the burgers, top with the cheese and grill until medium-rare, about 3 minutes more.

  • Set the burgers on the buns. Spread the tops with mayonnaise and garnish with sliced red onion, pickled jalapeños and cilantro; serve.

Notes

Ghost chiles, also called bhut jolokia, are about 150 times hotter than jalapeños.

Suggested Pairing

Lightly toasty ale.
