Portobello Burgers with Chipotle Mayo

This is one of those recipes that I have trouble posting because looking at the photo makes me want to go make it again. So good! It’s basically a portobello burger with chipotle mayo, lettuce and tomato. It’s a totally indulgent gourmet burger with a lot less fat than you might expect.

Portobello Burgers with Chipotle Mayo
Makes 2 burgers

Two portobello mushrooms, stems removed
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 hamburger buns
2 leaves romaine or other lettuce
1 tomato, cut into ½ inch slices
1 recipe Chipotle Mayo (recipe follows)

Heat your grill to medium and brush your portobellos with balsamic vinegar. Oil your grill and cook them for 3-5 minutes per side or until they are slightly softened and browned. You can also toast your buns by putting them on the grill for about 30 seconds, if you want.

Once your portobellos are done assemble your burger – about a teaspoon of chipotle mayo, lettuce, portobellos. Serve and enjoy!

Chipotle Mayonnaise
1 cup mayonnaise
1-3 chipotle chiles (the kind in Adobo sauce)
½ tsp adobo sauce (that the chiles came in)
½ tsp lime juice (optional)

Combine all ingredients in the food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Start with 1 chipotle and test it to see if you want more spice, then add more if desired.
