  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. Mexican oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander

  • While patties are grilling, mix together chipotles, lime juice and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Carefully chop stems off peppers and cut in half. Discard seeds from center and slice peppers up.
