  • 4Servings


  • 2 cups store-bought coleslaw
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pickled jalapeno chiles
  • 1/4 cup jarred sun-dried tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, finely chopped, plus 1 tablespoon sauce
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 slices pepper jack cheese
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 onion rolls, split
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 20 chili-flavored kettle-style potato chips


In a medium bowl, combine the coleslaw and jalapenos. In a small bowl, combine the sun-dried tomatoes, chipotle chile and adobo sauce.

Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. In a bowl, combine the beef, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper; shape into 4 patties. Grill the patties for 4 minutes, flip and cook for 4 more minutes, topping with the cheese during the last 2 minutes of cooking.

Meanwhile, spread the butter on the rolls and grill until toasted. Spread the tomato-chipotle mixture on the roll tops and bottoms. Top each roll bottom with some red onion, potato chips, a patty, some coleslaw and a roll top.
